Wonderful! I wish I had an old sleeping bag... :(

How difficult was that? Do you think it might be easier to sew the hem while the foam was in the sleeping bag?

One happy warm dog....

This is brilliant! I have often thought of ways to do this from scratch, and never did it. One idea was to use the round foam pipe insulator tubes on the edge. Another a simple heavy wire.

I was going to make them for cats.... never seemed to get around to it though, lol.

The model dog looks like either a Jack Russell or a Rat Terrier. My Rat Terrier has no undercoat and she is always curling up under some blanket in the winter. I like this idea a lot.

Your dog makes a good model for this project! Too bad more people don't think about their pets this time of year.

Awww, this is great. :D I love that your dog likes the pillow so much she wouldn't leave while you made the bed.
