Ruby enjoying her new dog bed:
Do you have some nice fabric lying around? Are you wondering how you might use it? Looking to fix a style solution for you and your dog?
The nitty gritty:
How much fabric do I need to supply? The quantity of material required differs according to size of dog bed. For a small dog bed we will need approximately 2m of fabric. For a medium size dog bed, approx 2.5m. For a large dog bed we need approximately 3.5m and an extra large dog bed about 5m but the exact length of material required depends on the width of the fabric. So, please get in touch and check details with us first.
Making a dog bed:
What type of fabric works best? We recommend thick fabrics made from natural materials like cotton. In terms of thickness, we usually use material that is a weight of 275gsm or above. In otherwords, the type of material used for upholstery or curtain projects, rather than dress fabrics. Natural materials like cotton are best, they provide the comfiest sleep surface and can be machine washed. Also, as well as considering what colours and patterns will work best in your home, consider what works best for your dog: you might want to opt for colours or prints will best hide the odd muddy paw print.
