this is Princess. not so happy. well i can't blame her. when i visited her. i just swooped her up and gently placed her inside. and if you know a chihuahua. then you are familiar with how they are. like how they decide when and if they will do something. i can assure you that the next day i found her resting comfortably inside and enjoying her new spot. looking very happy. i used this pattern found in Little Sallie Tomato's Etsy shop. Princess is about 15 lbs. and i made a Small. i had been wanting to make something like this for a long time. actually.... i had been wanting to design something like this for a long time. luckily i stumbled upon this. because my design never got further than looking like a pillowcase. i did a few things different but would not call them modifications. but they did create extra bulk which had to be included in the seam. i don't like fleece or fleece projects. but it can be squished when sewn and not look like it had been squished. so what did i do? cut the top piece so there would be a fold in front instead of a single layer. made an envelope opening so i could remove the inside. placed a towel inside instead of stuffing. you may not want to do this if using it on the floor. but as you can see. it's for the sofa! i would recommend this pattern. it was well written with clear instructions if you make a Puppy Pillow be sure to let me know. and since i used up some old fabric. i am counting this as a QuiltYourStash2016 finished project.
