Upcycled dog bed!

This is what Zabrina made today.

The old dog bed in the living room was horribly dilapidated, and a new one of comparable size is at least $80.

We inherited some memory foam mattress covers from my grandparents...while one layer wasn't enough, putting two layers together (with the softer foam on top) was thick enough to please our pampered puppies.

The big roll was from the old dog bed. The fabric is all upholstery fabric left over from other projects. My contribution to the project was helping to shove the foam into the cover, manipulating the pillow into its sleeve, and hand-sewing the opening closed.

They seem pleased enough. :)

No, they're not spoiled at all.


  1. Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
