    Talking Crate pads

    I went to a craft fair today and a lady there was selling crate pads made out of fleece. I bought one for Sally's crate. Then I got to talking to her and got her to donate one for our auctions. But........but.......I had this idea. I bet I could make these. Got home did a few things and then off to the store I went. And walla, I made my first custom crate pad. I need to practice a bit more but this one's not too shabby for my first. The only thing I could have done different really was use a more firm batting. I even added lace.

    Here's the one I bough for Sally's crate (her crate is very large).

    And the one I made. Typical 36"x24" crate.

    Very nice, Jeannie...you're pretty crafty! I especially love handsome Wilson in the picture demonstrating how comfy that pad is , he's such a natural model!

    And kudos to you for getting that lady to donate a pad for the upcoming auction!!

    Thanks everyone! I just finished opening up the one I got Sally and now I know how the batting's done. I found my new obsession and hobby for the winter.

    @fastmatt613 I plan on making them and donating them to our rescue auctions. I have to work on getting stock fleece on hand now. Wilson can hold his one in pink too - remember his earlier dog bed pics?
    @2BullyMama, Wilson wants to know who "wispn" is?
