10 Minute Doggy Bed Makeover for only $4.50!

Well as you know (I'm sure I've mentioned it before), we have 2 Blue Heeler Dogs.  They are what we would call "inside" dogs (others say spoilt).  They spend most of the day out in the front garden where they have the front verandah for shelter, an on tap supply of fresh water and their outisde beds.  At night they come inside, usually after we have eaten (I don't like dogs staring at me when I'm eating, it makes me nervous, ha, ha).  They have inside beds in our bedroom and more often than should be allowed Nicky claims our bed as hers as well.  Now that winter is as good as here, their outside beds looked a bit cold so I decided to give them a quilt each for their beds, not to get under, but to lay on top of, something more snuggly than just the mesh of their hammock beds.  So off to the op/thrift/goodwill shop I went and bought a single bed polyester quilt for $3.50 and a $1.00 single bed quilt cover.  I cut and hemmed both into two pieces and in less than 10 minutes (it took me longer to go to the shops) the girls have had a bedroom makeover.  Reverseable quilts, an easy manageable/washable size.  Something to keep them warm and snug on the chilly days ahead.

Nicky's hammock bed with the cut down and hemmed quilt.  Without a cover I would be washing the quilts every day.

Bluey seems to approve of the quilt cover I chose.

The quilt cover cut into two equal halves.

One side of the quilt cover (I prefer the other side).

The other side of the quilt cover, the side I prefer.  So pretty.
