My first project on my new sewing machine was a KING size dog bed for Miss Elka. I purchased the pretty print from the remnant section at Hancock fabrics for about $5. The fury side (which will regularly be the upright side) was about $10. With thread and Velcro, the whole thing cost $25. I used a full size mattress cover, folded in half for the stuffing. The time spent to make it with my Mom, Aunt Betty, Kendra and Lindsey was priceless of course! For perception, check out one of her other dog beds in the background.
