Default Made my first blanket!

With all of the DIY doggie projects lately, I thought I would give it a try too. I'm not typically the type of person who has time to make things, I would usually rather just buy them, but I gave it a shot and wanted to share. It's definitely not perfect, actually it's pretty bad, lol.
I made my first doggy blanket out of microfiber fleece!!
It's going to go on the inside of their soft carriers! I have enough to make one more, so hopefully that one will come out better and I will invest in scissors that can actually cut! Hahaha

It was a square, I'm not sure how it came out round?


The back side


Leo approves!! Lola looks like she is thinking about it!

Did you cut the squares out at the corners? If not that's why it's round probably.

That's awesome! Did you use the tutorial I posted?

I made a bed this way before. Same principle, you just stuff it in the end.

Pige made Bella one like that, now she has competition! hehe, seriously you did great.

Yes I did, which is why I don't know why it came out so funky? Lol. I didn't use regular fleece, I used microfiber fleece that has a lot of stretch to it, so I'm not sure if that has something to do with it!

I also LOVE the fabric.

You sound so much like me. I am not into making crafts. I did make one of these for Hope the first winter we had her. I was surprised how simple it was to make! It is a brown and pink damask pattern. I really like the owl pattern you chose.

Nicely done!

Thanks LS, I tried my best but pidge's was way better than mine!! I didn't know you posted a tutorial! I showed my friend a pic of one I saw online and she told me they were easy to make so I looked on YouTube!
