Hi, everyone! It's Amy from over at Sew Incredibly Crazy.
I created this colorful dog bed using a few vivid colors from the Amy Barickman’s Crossroads Denim collection. The colors that I choose were Metal Grey, Eggplant, Downtown Teal, and Midtown Moss. The denim is so soft and easy to work with. I can see several projects that would work really well using this fabric.
To make the pet bed, I followed the instructions of the Indygo Junction Pieced Pet Pillow. It gives instructions to the hourglass blocks above or the option I choose which was the recycle version. I wanted to personalize the bed and didn't want it to be too busy looking.
Plus my puppy is a boy and wanted to keep it a somewhat manly for the little fella.
We haven't had a dog in our home for almost 10 years and I wanted to make him something a little more special. I printed off his name. The letters are about 5 inches in height. Then, I took my HeatnBond® Lite , traced the letters on it so that they are in reverse.
Ironed it to my fabric of choice. The fabric I choose is from a new line called Vintage Made Modern from Amy Barickman by RJR Fabric.
Cut them out, centered them on the back, and ironed them in place on the back pillow portion. I sewed a simple straight stitch around all the letters. Then, I finished sewing the rest of the pet bed together.
Using HeatnBond® Lite , you can personalize just about anything.
Now, I can enjoy watching my furry friend in his super soft and personalized resting spot.
I do believe that it is Sawyer approved.a Rafflecopter giveaway
