Olive’s new bed

This is Olive’s new bed, which is recycled from hubby’s old work jeans! We have been going through soooo many dog beds as of late because she keeps shredding all her beds! After glancing at the prices of dog beds in big chain stores (50 bucks!! are you kidding me??!), I decided to make one using a pattern similiar to the one I use to make reusable snack bags! At first i thought about purchasing denim, but then I realized we just purged a bunch of clothing and sent it to our rag bins! 2 pair of jeans just so happened to be in there…Score! Olive is a small dog…so I imaging you’d need a few more pair for a larger pup. I wound up using velcro for easy opening and closing, hopefully she won’t chew the ends…we’ll see! I also stuffed it with our old tshirts that were also in the bins…I figured that way she’ll have our scent in case she’s lonely when we go out…and i can juts take them out and throw them in the washer when they need cleaning! I’m hoping to make another one for the art room!
