He He! I didn't think anyone would remember my doggy bed project! Even I forgot that I'd shared the WIP here at KH!
I had a few misgivings about it, mainly how in the world will I felt this monster without ruining my washing machine! I'd read a few comments at Ravelry about 'extreme lint' being a huge problem.
My bed is much larger than the kitty bed projects! I couldn't find a thing to put it in, like people do for smaller things. Anyhoo, I finally took courage....stuck it in my washer with two beach towels. Every 15 minutes of agitation I stopped the washer and used a fine mesh sieve to scoop/strain the loose lint out of the water. Oy!
My next misgiving was how in the world would I find ANYTHING big enough to shape the wet felted bed on??? Plus, when in the world will my town get a week of 90° weather so this thing dries before it molds???!
But, the stars all aligned in my favor, I pulled up my bootstraps, and plowed ahead when we had our heatwave! BTW, our 90° weather only lasted two days, but the bed dried fast outside for those two days.
Now we're back to our usual "wannabe summer" days!
Thanks for your nice comments!
