I currently have 3 dogs and 2 cats at home. They like comfortable beds, but each time I bought one, I was disappointed how fast the dogs could make holes in the fabric. The worst one did not last more than 2 hours.
So, a few years ago, I decided I could try to make one. After 3 or 4 experimentations, I came to a pattern easy to do. Then I made some for some large breed dogs, as a test to check if the bed would resist them too. And it did...
Here is the last one I've made. It took only 2 hours to make it.
Some people asked me the tutorial, and making the bed was a good opportunity to write the instructions and take some pictures. The tutorial is available for download here.
