Dog's bed from old cords

I made a peace of patchwork fabric from old cords a year ago now posted here. It was going to be a curtain but just never quite made it.
Then I needed a new cover for the dog's bed and it seemed like the perfect thing.

 I liked it so much that I made a second for my friend's dog too for christmas..

It is made up of a simple rectangular bag with four ties to secure the opening.
I fill ours with half an old duvet (literally just cut in half and stuffed in although I'm sure it would be neater to sew it up)!

A cosy dog's bed and a happy dog especially if it's put it in a sunny spot or in front of the fire.

I hope I'm getting good at this commenting lark! What a very lucky dog - the bed looks very posh and expensive. We'll have to collect trousers now as well as shirts.
