Hi there! New member here, hope I am in the right place!

I am trying to make a cot-style dog bed for my 70lb dog. My first version was made with a thick Cotton/poly plaid with Medi weight fusible interfacing on the back to provide strength, but it has stretched out a LOT under his weight.

The instructions I am using specify outdoor upholstery fabric, but I'm having trouble finding a cute pattern that doesn't look like patio furniture. Does anyone have suggestions of good designers/brands to check out for cute NON-Stretch fabric, or is there a way to stabilize stretchy fabric so it won't stretch?

TIA

Leslie

Hi there Leslie,

the best I can think of is spoonflower.com, which has custom made patterns that are uploaded by individual/artists (kindof like the website redbubble, except for fabric). Although I'm not sure if they come in specifically outdoor upholstery (the best I see on there is eco canvas), and they are rather expensive... but maybe there are other specialty shops online that carry the outdoor upholstery you're looking for? Hope that helps & that you're able to find the fabric you want!


All the best,

Beth
