Cuba's new "bed"

I saw this on Amazon -



in the UK it's 44.18 (that's $74!!!), so I thought I'd make my own; Cuba is VERY happy digging in it!

Exactly, Jen! It's a bed for those who like to dig; and a lot cheaper if you make it yourself!!! I just used some fleece that I had, some old bits of fabric, and the starry fleece was the remains of a dressing gown that I decided to shorten into a sort of jacket-y thing for reading in bed (me, not Cuba, she's not very good at reading...)

Tycho has now commandeered the 'bed', and Cuba is pretty cross about it...

Hey, Lalla, I'm not able to visualize it in my head (a bit dense, I guess...me that is) and the picture on Amazon didn't help me. Is it just a bunch of squares sewn together? Please explain. I see the dogs love it. You'll have to make another one so they don't fight over it.

Yes, Mary, that's exactly what it is - a bunch of squares sewn together, different textures, cosy fleece....a whole $74 worth!!!

Thanks, Lalla. Wow, for that price, you better start your own business., I. Your spare time. Lol. You know they're a bit hit and just think of all the scraps you'll get rid off.

I Googled Petstages Mini Nesting Mat - found them for as little as $18.95. Amazon doesn't give dimensions or any other info. But some of the others do.

You did a really great job. Love the colors and patterns you chose.

for that, Rosie, I'd probably just have bought one; except that it was good for me making something, I've been so distracted with other work lately that my sewing machine was getting dusty. Or rusty. Or both. No, I was the rusty one. I suppose it you make it yourself you can choose your colours (actually the colours were chosen simply on what I had lying around, pretty much) and there is a sense of satisfaction in it. Goodness knows it's easy enough.
