    I made a bunch for our local shelter, I got flannel on sale at Joann's to make really large ones because they said a lot of the big dogs dont get many. They asked to keep them not too fat, so i did flannel, batting and either more flannel or fleece. I also quilted them fairly heavy because they get a lot of wear and tear in the washing machines. And I sealed each one with lots of love and a prayer they find a safe and loving home.

    I made nice beds for our 4 dogs too and only the little cock a poo sleeps on it. The other 3 will leave their nice soft pretty beds and go down and sleep on the concrete floor in the basement. I think they like the cool cement even though the air conditioning is on upstairs. Hopefully they'll appreciate them this winter.

    Be careful with knit fabrics, some dogs have longer claws and they may get snagged in them, otherwise, use whatever you have, I have used very inexpensive fabric and even found comforters, sheets, towels etc, at yard sale and thrift stores to use
    happy to have enough stash fabric at all time
