pooches and pickups dog bed & a giveaway! [closed]

5.24.2011

[Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway!]

I was really excited when Laurie sent me a few fat quarters of her newest line Pooches and Pickups to play with.  My mom and dad have a black lab, so the prints were especially fitting for them.  I hope I didn't take the fabric design too literally - but I made a dog bed for their dog, Cinder.


If you're a dog or cat lover, you know how much they love their beds (or yours).  Cinder was due for a new one to fit inside her dog crate.

I made the body of the bed from black twill and included a zip at the bottom for easy removal for washing.  And a little freezer paper stencil let's everyone know who's bed it really is!


How about some Pooches and Pickups for yourself?  I'm giving away a fat quarter bundle of Laurie's Pooches and Pickups collection (a total of 6 fat quarters in two super cool colorways).  Oh, and if you don't want to wait to win, you can also purchase her fabric at Hawthorne Threads, Fat Quarter Shop, and Pink Chalk Fabrics.

To enter:

  • One entry per person.  Please leave your email address in your comment. You can leave it in a format like this if you wish: anna [at] gmail [dot] com
  • Tell me what you'd make with the fabric if you win, or what the craziest thing you've ever made for your pet?!
  • There will be one winner chosen, loot includes 6 fat quarters from the Pooches and Pickups collection.
  • Open to international entries.
  • Giveaway ends Wednesday, May 25th at 10pm (central time).

And if you're feeling the giveaway frenzy, go check out Rebecca's Blog, Chasing Cottons for her giveaway!

  13. Oh please enter me to win the giveaway. I would love to make a dog bed for our Spencer. He does not have one yet! We got him from the pound he is a cuddle buddy for me while I am stuck at home. He is a Chihuahua rat terrier with one ear that flops lol. He is small only 6 pounds so I could make him that and use the left overs for a Crazy Quilt:)

  21. Hello, thanks for the wonderful opportunity. The fabrics are great, I'd use them to make a bag for my cat because she loves sleeping in bags and she doesn't have one of her own. I'd also make some pouches - for my phone, my e-reader and my camera.

  54. Our dog, Ruby, loves squeaky toys and routinely tears up those plushy toys form the pet store. So, I grabbed some twill that I got cheap and reused a squeaky and some stuffing and made her a squeaky toy. Now she's torn a hole in it so I have to patch it (that was idea since I have so much of the twill).

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have a gorgeous, Giant Schnauzer. She is a huge sook and likes full body contact with one of us, any time she can get it! Make poop bag carriers out of the fat quarter. It hooks on her collar and she carries her own pooper scooper bags.

  56. cute! i'd make my daughter a stuffed doggie since she LOVES 'puppies' but can't have one of her own... yet. maybe in the next house.

  57. I have had my dog, Moose since right after college. He is pretty old now and I have told him HE MUST LIVE FOREVER.

  65. I would make something (not sure what yet!) for my little boy who is due in June.

    The only thing I've made for my dog was a crochet toy. It was supposed to be an octopus, but the legs were a pain, so she just got the body. I used purple, so now we just call it her grape.

  68. I'd be delighted with the fat quarters! While I haven't done any crazy pet sewing, I did attempt to sew up a hole in my dog's favorite toy. In the processed I sewing threw my thumb!!! Then I threw it away and went to Petsmart and bought another one :-)

    The craziest thing I have ever made for my pet? well, my cat has a kink in her tail and I made her a little flag for it. Then I could watch her around the other side of the coffee table like I was waiting for the shark to approach! I laughed a lot over that one. It was a long time ago. I have recently made blanket coats for my 3 goats though... not crazy but needed.

  72. Love these fabrics. If you come visit my blog you'll find I'm a little dog obsessed. The craziest thing Ive made for my dogs is homemade snacks.

  74. My sister and I made a crochet amiguru (but a big one ^^) with also big and robust package twine (natural fibers). It is perfect, because the cats can bite and claw it and it will "survive"! Not one toy from the store survived more than one day with my three little (or for cats not so little) monsters :)

  82. BEAUTIFUL fabric! I love it:) We have three dogs and if I won I would make a new bed for our Frenchie - Maxwell. He needs a new bed all his own since our other two little ones - Shih Tzu/Pom mix and a Yorkie/Affenpincher mix are always hogging the dog bed. The craziest thing I've ever made for the dogs was when our baby - Izzy was fixed - she was nibbling on her stitches and I didn't want to get her a cone so I took a pair of old tube socks and cut them down to make a tube that fit over her belly and her stitches while she was healing. All it involved was a pair of scissors and an old sock but it was darling and fit the bill perfectly:)

  93. The craziest thing I ever made for my pet? Well, I did make a quilt for my dog Abby, but even crazier...one year I made her a clown hat and neck ruffle for Halloween. It was hilarious; needless to say, she didn't appreciate it.

    If I won this cute little bundle, I'd probably make another dog quilt.

  105. Direction-reading fail. Please delete post 104--so sorry. Obviously I have not had enough caffeine today. The craziest thing I've ever made for a pet is food. They're called satin balls, made specifically for very, very underweight dogs to help them gain weight. We used to foster rescue dogs, and would occasionally get dogs that needed some rehab. Satin balls consist of really yummy things like raw hamburger, heavy cream, oats and full-fat peanut butter. Yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I can't decide whether I'd use it to make my dog Max a new travel bag for all his stuff (we take him everywhere), or make a lap quilt for my nephew Todd. It would also appeal to the little kid in my very grown up husband!

  122. Super cute dog bed! My parents have a black lab, too, and travel quite a bit. If I had that fabric I'd make them a travel bag to carry all their Lab gear. Maybe they'd come visit me more!! ;)

  125. Great doggie bed!! I love this fabric and seem to be following it around the internet, trying to win some. The craziest thing I ever made for a pet was the stuffed buns hotdog Hallowe'en costume I made for our miniature dachshund, Flynn, when he was a puppy. Complete with felt mustard, ketchup and relish down his back. He wore it happily when he was 9 months old, but a year later was much too proud to be caught in such an obvious costume.

  126. Thanks for giveaway - this new collection is great. I am currently without dog or truck (I think I'm living an old-fashioned country song), so I'd work these into a quilt. I made my own guinea pig cage, because all the cages that are sold at pet stores are waaaaay too small.

  130. Super love your blog, just so you know. Great Giveaway!!! And completely needed by ME! I would make a comfy, cozy, furry friend mini couch to keep our fuzzy four footed fiend (erm. . . friend) off of my new patio furniture. The cushions apparently call to be wallowed upon (sigh). This way my bumm would be fur free. . . you want to help me with that, right?

  142. That dog bed is such a great idea. And here I was, trying to help my friend come up with a birthday gift for her stepdad, who has 6 dogs and is in love with each and every one of them. A dog bed is perfect! I would probably use the fat quarters to make that, or a little tube lined with fur for my cat to hide and play in.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  184. What a great fabric line name, "Pooches and Pickups"! I love it! I have an old '58 Airstream that we have been "refreshing" and this fabric line would be so perfect in it. I would definitely make two cute beds for the pooches to put in that 'ol '58. And with the leftovers make them both a couple of scarves and maybe one for mommy too!

If I'm having a boy, I'll make something for him with the trucks. If not I'll make something for my friend with twin boys!

  195. I would love to win!! I'm coming to you from Laurie's blog where I saw Cinder's adorable bed that you made. I'm currently working on a backpack using this fabric for my grandson. I would use the fat quarters to make him something else. The funniest thing I've ever made for my dog is a pair of pee pee pants. He loved to hike his leg (anywhere). When sporting his pee pee pants he didn't do it.
