Well Wyatt has needed a new bed for awhile, he is a big dog so needs a big bed. I don't know if you have priced dog beds but they can be pretty pricey. Surely I can make it cheaper. I bought fleece at 50% off at Joanns and then looked at the foam-YIKES! 3in foam is priced at 39.99 a yard and I need 42 in. Even at half price it was way too expensive. My solution was Goodwill. I found a full/queen foam sheet there for 4 dollars. I cut it into rectangles and stacked it 3 sheets high. Next I stitched them together, cut my fleece with approx. 6 inches to spare all the way around my foam. I then cut out the corners and cut strips every inch. I tied all the strips and now my big german sheppard has a new bed for a total cost of 13.00.
