Snuggly Pet Bed pattern review | SewsNBows

I used a new pattern & I thought I’d share: the Snuggly Pet Bed from Eden Ava Couture.

I actually made the Snuggly Pet Bed pattern twice. The first one, I used binding around the edges as the pattern calls for. I’ve never been good with binding though! I covered the edges with some fun ric rac.

I also got ambitious and quilted the little pillow! I’m actually pretty pleased with myself, but wish I didn’t use dark thread to piece the squares together. I was just having fun though.

For the 2nd Snuggly Bed, I sandwiched piping between the inner and outer walls. This gave me a much cleaner finish.

I trimmed the front with lace of this ruffled satin ribbon left over from one of Sofia’s pageant costumes.

I wanted to show you both pillows. The Snuggly Pet Bed pattern instructs us to use batting to line the pillow. I skipped it on my 2nd pillow; above. It looks just fine really, but the quilted pillow does hold it’s shape better and look really nice. That’s a neat little trick I picked up sewing this pattern!

I experimented a little bit with these pet beds; and used what I had on hand. A stiff interfacing works for the walls; but I do wish I would’ve used more batting instead!

I’ve also used the Peppermint Snow & the Vintage 1930’s Dress patterns from Eden Ava Couture.

The designer is Donna Seabury; and she’s really sweet. I saw on her blog she’s taking a break from designing due to health reasons. I’d love for you to stop by and check out her patterns, and say a little prayer for health and healing.

I’m going to leave you with a sneak peek of my contribution to the Mega Giveaway next month!
