A Bed for the Poochy

My dog Carmen is in DESPERATE need of a new dog bed. With that being said, let me tell you why I dislike dog beds....

1. They are too expensive for how quickly they wear out
2. The ones that are relatively cheap, don't have zippers to wash the outer shell
3. If you can take the outer shell off, the inside can't be washed

These things lead to a smelly dog bed and a smelly dog. No fun.

Oh, and let's not forget that dog beds get flat super fast. I then feel guilty that my baby girl doesn't have a nice plush place to lay down.

Let's just take a look at what her bed(s), yes I said beds, look like

She definitely looks comfy on her 3 beds, but seriously, they are gross.

So I bought some super cheap fleece at Joann's black friday sale and made her a new bed.
It was super easy. I just folded the fabric in half, sewed in a quick short zipper on one end and then filled it with old towels I cut into strips. Now I can wash the outer shell AND the inside stuffing. Everything will stay so fresh and so clean! Win Win!

I think she digs it!

Much Love~

  1. Brown dog and brown dog bed! She looks comfy now.

  2. Loving your dog bed. What a smart idea to use towels as the stuffing! Thank you to linking up to Sew Woodsy last week. I featured your dog bed today!

  3. Carmen is so sweet and so spoiled by her Mommy. I love spoiling my fur baby too. I just made her a new coat that I will be sharing soon. Stopping by from Sew Woodsy linky party and a follower here and now on Pinterest.
