And not just any bed from the store would do. I knew I wanted it to be like a large floor pillow, it seemed most comfortable for a larger breed dog. I thought about the fleece tie blankets and figured I could put stuffing inside one and wah-la, pillow. Since it is for a puppy who will probably be very curious I knew he would find the fuzz if I left it at though so I also put stitching all around it right underneath the knotting. It turned out very lovely and professional looking. The underside which I did not take a picture of is just a solid dark gray. I am betting that the fringe will be used as a toy which is fine by me, dual purpose. This one is about two and a half feet long by two feet wide. When he either gets bigger or tears this one up I will make him another bigger one. Smiley Enjoy!

I get to go pick this little guy up on the 20th, friends of craftster, meet Malfoy! Named after Draco Malfoy it seemed fitting for him to have this fabric for his bed, I also picked him up a doggie toy that is a stuffed dragon!

Please excuse all the unnecessary puppy information, I am 21 and was never allowed a puppy. I moved out and the very first thing I did was find him. He has everything I wanted in the breed (Siberian Husky) he has the red and white fur combo that I find adorable, blue eyes, and an evil looking mask.

Edit: Since posting this I also made a leash, I didn't know where would be the best place to post it so I am adding it here and hopefully someone can point me in a better direction for future things of this nature. Smiley

I almost bought a leash and harness set made from ACU fabric off of etsy. I had never made a harness and didn't want to make it and Malfoy break it and run away so I felt it was best to get it from someone with practice. The leash I almost got but realized I had all the things I needed to go ahead and give it a go myself. It was really easy. It was just like making straps for a purse. Instead of a traditional hook I chose to use a climbing hook, I thought it went with the military theme a lot better.

Malfoy is very pretty. I'm sure he'll love all the bits and things you've made (and will make I'm sure) for him.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Malfoy is awesome! His bed is adorable. I might have to give making one a go for my fur baby. I love that you made his bed dragon themed to go with his name, that is too cute!

I was looking for a new bed for my BIG dog...love this one...

I was just wondering if your puppy chewed off the fringe?  I am thinking of making mine without it as my dog loves to chew everything! Cheesy
