Oddball doggie pillow is finished!
I started it almost a year ago as an oddball blanket from all the acrylic odds and ends my grandma gave me. At some point i just couldn't do it anymore, so i bought a simple pillow in a fabric store, knitted some more and then folded the thing, seamed, put the zipper and voila.


It's about 80cm x 80cm, which is about 30"x30". I didn't bother blocking it. BUT there's a big problem - my dog really doesn't understand what it's for. She's a big dog, about 50 pounds, but she does look funny and small in the picture:

Thank you! My doggie is a good looking canine ... In the meantime, the cats seem to love it!

Nice way to use the odds and ends. That's good that your cats are getting some use out of it.

Finally, the doggie realized that it's for her also, so she's using it too, so cute!
