Of all things....a Grain Sack Dog Bed Slipcover

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

I was contacted about a week ago by a guy who requested a grain sack dog bed slipcover.  He wanted it to be handmade for his very special dog.

Not something I can say I have ever done before.  But I am certainly grateful for the work.  This was a rescue dog.  The customer sent me pictures of the dog on the day they got him and then another one at the one month mark.  The difference was astounding.  You could literally see that this dog had some very loving and attentive people taking care of him.  

I decided to stitch his name on a small label.

So nice to see people step us and rescue a dog like that.  

I wish I had an insert so I could show you what it will really look like.  It was fun to make!

Enjoy the long weekend everyone!

  5. Oh, my gosh. How loved is Wesley. (I know first hand how beautiful your handwork is.) He'll be sleeping on a cloud of love!

  6. How darling that is! I wish I could sew like you. I'd love to make a new cover for my dog bed. It doesn't match my home, but it serves a purpose. New dog beds are expensive too. That is one lucky dog to get that custom made bed cover with his own name embroidered on it!

  7. What a wonderful idea, Michele! you've got me thinking..... :)
