Seriously are you really trying to make me feel guilty for throwing out those small fabric and batting scraps. I already save strings and crumbs for my HeartSTrings quilts and I sew batting strips together and still those bits and little pieces still fill up my trash cans.
I may have to try one for Chesty -- we'll see.

Ok, I am making my Thor a doggie bed as soon as I get enough stuffing. I think I will make it to match our curtains, lol. I don't know WHY I don't think of these things....you are so smart!
ps, I am making your large pot holders for Christmas gifts this year and already started. Mark got the first set and he loves them!

fantastic - I am sending it straight to my mother, who has been buying batting for her dog beds for years!

What a great way to bust old unwanted stash! You could probably make the outside out of old jeans and recycle at the same time.

what a great way to make a pet bed! I may have to change my method and do it this way.

Do you sew each channel into cells to eleminate shifting of the batting? Nice technique. Our shelter is always in need of donated supplies for both dogs and cats.

Great idea for using up odd pieces of batting and cuttings.

I love this idea so much!!! I'm in the process of organizing a "stitch night" down at our church and this seems like an awesome project for us.
I posted a link to your tutorial on Craft Gossip Sewing:

I would think the heavier pillow is a good thing with the bigger dogs, holds up better. Now I have to go through my trash pail....

Great way to de-clutter and I know the shelters really appreciate these. They always need much more for the animals than they can get. This is a real "contributing" project.
