Sewn Dog Bed with bumpers

My dog Shelby LOVES to sleep with her back against something.  When I first got her 2 years ago, I knew I wanted to make her bed since all the dogs beds I saw were like $40 for a comfy one!  $40 is a bit much so off to Joann Fabrics I went to find some soft fabric.  I picked out this brown one with pink, green, and orange polka dots.  I think it suits her well :-)

The bed was my first sewing project so I wasn't 100% sure what i was doing I just kinda figured it out on the way.  1 old pillow, some stuffing, and 2 hours later, I had this bed!  The only problem was that the sides wouldn't stay up!! I had put in too many panels and so they drooped.  To fix this, I made this cardboard bed frame lol... it looked so ghetto!! But it did the job holding the side bumpers up!

Tonight, finally after TWO YEARS in the making, I have fixed it! It only took about 15 minutes too lol... I dunno why I put it off for so long.  Now the bed can stand up on its own and I don't need to have that ugly cardboard box in my room anymore!

The best part is that Shelby seems to really like it :-)

Arthritis can be very painful and is actually a chronic joint condition, which can cause major loss of movement of the affected joints.

Great post! Bringing home a new dog, whether it’s a puppy or an adult, is like bringing home a new baby – you need to be prepared, and you need supplies. So, I was looking for articles on buying dog beds online, when I came across yours inspiring read. You saved my time and effort, Cheers!
