My dog Murphy needed a bed, so I headed down to Goodwill to find supplies. I happened upon a hooded panda blanket!

I also bought a plain black piece of fleece for the belly of the panda bed. The only other supplies needed were a needle and thread and a piece of foam or filling.

Here is how I made it:
(I hope these directions make sense)

Basically you make a big pillowcase for the foam. So first I took the blanket and the plain piece of fleece and pinned them right sides in. I hand stitched around 3 of the sides and halfway up the last one. Then I turned the piece right side out. Then I folded the foam in half and wedged it into the blanket/case I just made. I chose not to seal up the hole just yet, I intend to add a zipper so it can be easily removed and washed. And guess what? That's right. It's reversible.

Inspiration without application is moot.

So far he hasn't touched it, although I was afraid my other dog might find it to be tasty and chew it off so I am thinking about tacking it down to one side if it becomes a problem. The hood adds a natural pocket to the bed, its really handy for toys.
