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!

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.

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

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!

Thank you ladies! I knew you all could make me feel better about it! I bought it at JoAnn fabrics, I think they have those everywhere? I wish I made more things but I'm not good at it so it ends up being a waste of time and money. :(

If you just undo three or four knots, you can put old blankets or clothes inside to stuff it, and it makes a gorgeous bed! :)

How are you supposed to get "good" if you never practice?! ;)
Just buy cheaper fabric and experiment. :)

Besides, I think you did awesome for your first try.
