Make a Pet bed!

20121005-174004.jpgMake a pet bed out of scrap fabric and an old comforter. I measured out 32″ long by 18″ wide two pieces of ultra suede. Then measured out 4″ wide strips of some upholstery fabric for the sides. Sewed it all up leaving a wide opening in one long end. Then laid it on top of an old comforter and kept cutting out pieces to the thickness desired. Or until you run out of comforter!

Then I stacked all the comforter pieces and carefully placed them inside the sewn cover. Then stitch up the opening. Then with a big monster sewing needle I put the pompoms on with buttons on the bottom side of the cushion. It took me an hour! Easy peasy!

Make one for your pet today! 🙂

I have been artistic in one way or another all my life. Growing up in a creative family fueled my desire towards being an artist. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA from Detroit, MI in 2009, I needed a creative outlet and started volunteering at a local Clay Studio where I created many hand built ceramic vessels and fun sculptures. From there, I stumbled into sewing and started a handbag line under the name Mackerilla Design. After many years of sewing my bag designs, (which I currently still sell sewing patterns of my designs on ETSY and through a few online retailers) I wanted to get back to being an artist and started painting in 2014. Since I am passionate about animals and volunteer for rescues, painting dogs and cats in acrylic paint on canvas would be my subjects of choice! But I do love to paint all other living creatures as well as a few humans here and there! My approach is to capture the animal’s essence through the look in their eyes. To show their vulnerability and love for their humans. I truly love painting and have so many ideas continuously swirling in my head! I feel I am still learning and growing. I am looking forward to my future to see my progression as being an artist. -Janice Serilla
