Leopard Bed for Mia

If there's one thing I'm obsessed with, it's dog beds.  I have to keep myself from buying every single cute one I see, and I'm only able to restrain myself when I remember the shoebox we live in!!
However, when I had some leftover memory foam that was just the right size for a dog bed, I just had to make Mia another snuggle palace!
I ordered a yard of velboa fabric, which I've never heard of before, but it's a lot like fleece but fuzzier.  It was perfect for this project!  I think this is the one I ordered
I decided to use the same method of those DIY fleece blankets (click here if you've never heard of them) and just tie the fabric on around the foam. 
After cutting out the corners, I worked in sections cutting fringe and tying it together.  I don't have a picture of the actual tying process, but it was as straight forward as it sounds!
And then Mia had another bed to lounge on!  Of course, she doesn't actually use it.  This picture was a fluke because I put it in her normal laying spot!
However, she did lay on it yesterday!  I was working from home and I put the bed at my feet, and look what happened:
Yippie!  That's a pretty weird looking position to lay in, but I still love that fur ball!
