TARDIS-Shaped Dog Bed  

Hello.  This is my first post here but I've been lurking for quite some time.  Our four-legged baby girls--Sophie, Emma, and Bella--needed a bigger house to nap in during the day but we couldn't find one that we liked.  Yesterday I was in a crafty mood so I decided to just make them one.  And, of course, I made it in the shape of the TARDIS.  

ETA:  Thanks for all your wonderful comments!  And the girls are finally using their new bed.

It took a little longer than I thought it would--I started yesterday afternoon and just finished it this evening--and the scales a bit off, but I'm really happy with the result.

Very cute. I hope the dogs enjoy it.

Thanks. We are actually waiting to see if they will get in it. It takes them a while to warm up to new things sometimes.

excellent job! What is it made from?

Thanks! It's actually made of two cardboard science fair boards I found at Walmart. They just happened to be the perfect width. (We keep their house tucked away under my sewing machine table.) I covered them with batting and then with fabric. The letters and sign were iron-ons.

That is TOO adorable, and very nicely made! I would never have thought of this - well done!

Might have to make one for my cat now...

Just what I was thinking. This looks too good for dogs. ^_- (besides my dog wouldn't fit.)

This is such a cute idea, I should
make one for my cats, if they'd use it that is. :)

Adorable! I would make something for my cats, but I have a feeling they would just look at it and think I'm crazy, then go lay on my bed...as they usually do. Why lay in a kitty bed when there is a big comfy one just sitting there in the other room, right? Too smart for their own good.

Just watch out if the puppies start traveling in time and space... o_o you never know.

*is dead*

That's wonderful. I really want to make one now! (even though my antisocial cat wouldn't go near it...) You did a wonderful job!

YOU MUST SHOW ME HOW YOU DID THIS. I have 2 cats, Rose Tyler and Chewbacca, and they desperately need a new pad!
