Finally, a bed for Ellie!

I finally got around to making a simple pillowcase slipcover for Ellie's little suitcase doggy bed. I found some ultrasuede at Hobby Lobby in their scrap bin for 3.00! So now she can get all snuggled down when I'm in my art room ~



She has this cute little habit of softly scratching her ear when she's sleepy . . .

Can I tell you that I love that sweet looking little pup of yours!?!?!?!?! Course I have a fondness for dogs and especially pups.... well except maybe my new pup which is a Pug/Boston Terrier. Me and my dogs are nappers and the new one isn't. Didn't know how much energy Pearl was going to have!!!! Regrets.... none really except a missing nap here and there.

What a cute and original idea! Did you put some kind of cushioning under the fabric for her? We are keeping our fingers crossed all goes well this year with getting a puppy. The breeder had a sick dog last year and there were no puppies in the end. It is so exciting as I have always wanted a dog but we kept thinking of reasons not to get one. Cranberry Cottage is perfect for a dog so we decided to just do it.

Ellie is so adorable!

What a cutie-patootie! And the idea of a suitcase for the bed- well, again, you have inspired me! Braxton likes to be in here with me and he has a litle bed as well, but nothing as wonderful as this!
Have a fun day!

Simply beautiful...I love that idea...do you think there is a suitcase out there big enough for my Maggie??...she's only 53 pounds or so...not sure I could find a suitcase to accomodate her size. And Ellie...oh! Dawn...she is just the perfect little thing...I have fallen in love with her and I've never met her...isn't that strange...I feel like she is part mine b/c you do such a wonderful job of sharing her. I never tire of seeing her sweet face! She is truly the sweetest thing! She is so lucky to have you as her mama.

Blessings...

Alice's bed is now in the office with me, right around the corner from my studio. It's not so much that she wants to be near me -- it's right in front of the heater vent. LOL

I see I am not alone is having a little "love-fest" with Ellie. I think every picture of her warms my heart more. And I have 3 of my own, how funny is that? She is a dear.
