Then stuff it with some goose down that I have (my down pillow ripped, I didn't want all that expensive down to go to waste, so I'm using it for stuffing other projects) and seam it up.
Nice!! If your dog could talk u would hear "I LOVE YOU!!!!" Thank you!
is "garter stitch" knit one row, purl one row? or is that stockinette?

And the pattern I talked about, I repeat that after finishing and sew them together to make it softer!
