(Finally got out to run. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be.)
My mom bought fabric long ago so that I could make a dog bed for Lucy. Many months have passed since then, anad it's about time I got started on it. I'm wingin' it. I've always tried to do things my own way, especially when it comes to crafts or sewing. I think my grandma has always gotten frustrated with me because of this, but when I picture something in my mind, I want to make it that way, not the way someone tells me to.
I had a ton of leftover batting, so I measured Lucy and then cut an appropriate size of batting.
I had already doubled the first piece. I stacked those two pieces on top of another doubled piece to make 4 layers of batting.
I decided to cut out my fabric. The batting had been 37"x25" (who needs conventional lengths and widths?), so I cut my fabric at 38"x26", to make sure I had enough for a seam allowance. I'll also be sewing a double seam for durability.
As you can see, Lucy's really excited about her dog bed:
