Note to My Dog + New & Improved Dog Bed February 21, 2012

Dear Wonder Dog,
It’s me, your mom. Remember me?

Do you really have to chew up the beautiful bed covers I sew for you?

Was it the Velcro closure that you didn’t care for? Or the mix of fabrics? Please! Do tell! I’d love to spend my time creating something more exotic than a dog bed. No offense!

Yes, of course, you are the apple of my eye. I feed you, I walk you, and all I ask in return, is that you don’t chew up your bed!
Love,
Your Mother

If your dog enjoys chewing his bed, it’s easy to recover it, but don’t tell my dog!

Just take measurements of the bed. Add an inch all the way around, for seam width and cut one side of the bed cover.

For the other side of the bed, which will have the pocket entrance for the pillow insert, add 8 to 10 inches to the length of the fabric you cut, so that you can have overlapping panels.

Finish off the panel end-seam, by turning the fabric under twice and sewing it to prevent fraying.

Well there you have it. Another fabulous do-it-yourself project, here at the Treasured Home!

    Pretty new bed and I hope it stays in tact this time.

      Hi Kim,
      Already, last night, he was doing it again! My husband says he likes his beds “broken in”! Sure! Although, this time, I used a thicker fabric, so maybe it will take him longer to destroy it.

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Hi Barbara! Discovered you through Jane’s blog! I have been through this SO MANY TIMES with one of my dogs I could just tear my hair out. This 7 yr old Dalmation mix is the only one who chews up her bed and I cannot figure out WHY!!! So, like you, I have sewed and sewed and sewed! It just gets longer and longer inbetween replacements!!!

      Welcome, Vickie! Glad I’m not alone here! Crazy dogs! 🙂

    That bed does look pretty yummmmmmy! Glad to see your wonder dog has such good taste. He is a most beautiful dog. I want him, ripped bed or not.

      Your wish just may come true! Actually Mr. Wonderful would never let him go, so Abbey will have the kingdom to herself!
