Gone to the Dogs!

It’s been a long time, but I’m going to jump back here like nothing has changed. Lots has changed, and that will come out in due time.

So what does one do with lots of left over felted pieces?

Most of these pieces are smaller than my hand.  They are left over from cutting out insoles that are made on my new FeltLOOM.

Someone suggested a dog pillow.  So yesterday I decided to whip up a fabric pillow case and fill it with the felted scraps.

This is just a light weight cotton/polyester fabric.  Good and strong.  But it needed a comfy covering.

I found some polar fleece made in a tube that was the right size, as luck would have it.  All I had to do was cut it to the right length.  I sewed one end shut and hemmed the other end.

I added some velcro and just like that, I have a finished dog pillow with a removable, washable cover.  It measures about 20 inches square.  These will be limited to the amount of felted scraps I create from cutting insoles!  I’ll have 2 for sale at the Farmers Market this week in Elk River!

Thanks for reading.  I would love to hear from you if you are still checking in on my little blog.  Please try to comment below and let me know if there are problems – I’ve changed my blogging format as well as my website!
