    FINALLY, got to working on this today, and finished it. My mother fell in love with this fleece type fabric some years ago and bought quite a bit of it, it's extra super soft, but they were limited on colors. Well, I made this design on SpoonFlower and knew when I saw it printed what I wanted to do with it, finally got the funds to buy a yard, and here it is!

    Only one little problem though, I had to borrow pillows to stuff it for the photo's, so, I guess if I want to use it I'll need to buy some new ones, oops. Oh well, the cover easily folds and stores away.

    Ok... I LOVE it. Do you have anything like that for other breeds? Like maybe corgis, Mals, English cockers???? I would love something like that for my dogs, and a Cocker one as a gift for my mom.

    The fabric, yes, the beds, no, but I can get you the easy sew instructions (I really didn't even use instructions, just surfed Pinterest for a few months, lol). The hardest part is the zipper, but it's wasn't really that hard, I actually was happy that finding a matching colored zipper for this wasn't hard thanks to my favorite local craft store and a "customer appreciation sale".

    And for the fabric, I have a lot of breeds built up now! Here are my favorite Cardi's:

    American Cockers (also available in white background), I'll have to add English to my list of "to-do":

    Oh, and hint if you want to order, not all the fabrics are equal in use, the best for this project and others such as collars, crate covers (my next project!) etc, is the Poplin, it holds the ink the best over time and has a decent weave that's easy to sew and holds up (the Kona tends to unravel obnoxiously along the edges, the basic cotton is a bit too thin, and the color washes out quite a bit on the canvas, forget the Twill no one's had luck using that one).
