At $18, though, it wasn’t happening. I did think I could replicate it, or even improve upon it. What do you think?
- Two ovals of fabric (one will be your lining)
- Two ovals of heavyweight interfacing (I cut four but needed only two in the end).
- One oval of batting
- Two strips of fabric that is the diameter of your oval + 1″ for length SA and 1″ height SA
- One strip of heavyweight interfacing that is the same length as the fabric strip
- One strip of Peltex or Timtex that is the diameter of your oval and the height of the side of the dog bed (this will be 1/2″ smaller all the way around your fabric strip).
Step 1: Cut out the entry for the dog bed from the Peltex:
Step 2: Iron on the interfacing.
Step 3: Sew the top side of the dog bed following the edge of the Peltex and trim.
Step 4: Open out the strip and sew the side seams so it forms a loop:
Step 5: Sew down the batting on the bottom of the dog bed.
Step 7: Sew one of the ovals to the side of the dog bed. It helps to fit the oval bottom if you sew a long gathering stitch around the edge.
Step 8: Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the interior of the dog bed. I will note that the lining was extra big so I would suggest to sew the interior of the dog bed with a slighter larger SA like 3/4″. IMPORTANT! Remember to leave a space of 3-4″ to turn the dog bed right side out.
Step 9: Turn right side out and sew your interior lining closed.
Step 10: Admire your work!
