Karma’s New Dog Bed


Dog Bed for Karma 3

From FabricWorm.com, I found the most adorable print for my dog, Karma.  I purchased a unit (1/2 yard) without a real plan for how I would use it.  It has all of Karma’s mannerisms captured in the cartoon dogs in this modern playful print, so I knew I just had to have some! It’s by Michael Miller called “Dog Speak Multi”.

On sale last week at Target, I found a dog bed insert (poly filled) for less than $10.00.  It’s from Target’s Boots & Barley line.  Target sells many covers, but I ventured to make my own!  The bed measures 36 inches by 29 inches, so I needed a complementary print to cover the entire face of  the pet bed.  I paired this designer fabric with a inexpensive light grey chevron print that I found at my local JoAnn store.  I only needed 1/2 yard.

I also picked up a solid light grey fabric to use for the backside.  Instead of a zipper, I used overlapping back pieces to hold in the insert.  To finish each edge of the overlap, I used a “Loopy” decorative stitch.

I had some scrap fabric from a recent project called Stampin’ Up Tea for Two Fabric that I used to create a “K” on the bottom right of the dog bed.  I used a decorative zig-zag stitch to tack it in place.

  It was my first time to add applique like this – daring to wing it on my own but I think it worked beautifully!

BIG YAWN!  Now, Karma is ready for a nap!
