Having come to the dog

Especially in the cold season, dog is happy about a warm spot. The simple sewing instructions for the patchwork blanket can be found here!

What you need for the dog blanket:

  • dark blue corduroy
    80 x 50 cm plus 1 cm seam allowance per side (for the back of the pillow)
    2 strips of 4 x 74 cm plus 1 cm seam allowance per side
    2 strips of 6 x 46 cm plus 1 cm seam allowance per side
  • dark blue corduroy
    80 x 50 cm plus 1 cm seam allowance per side (for the back of the pillow)
    2 strips of 4 x 74 cm plus 1 cm seam allowance per side
    2 strips of 6 x 46 cm plus 1 cm seam allowance per side
  • orange cotton fabric:
    33 x 21 cm plus 1 cm seam allowance per side
  • Volume fleece 80 x 50 cm (fabric department)
  • tape measure
  • fabric scissors
  • pins
  • Sewing machine and matching yarn
  • sewing needle
  • possibly buttons or zipper

And that's how easy it is:

For a ceiling of 80 x 50 cm:

1. Fold the fabric pieces for the front of the pillow into the photo and stitch them together on the seam allowance right to right. In each case note the offset. Sew all edges together.

2. Place the large blue piece of fabric for the back on the right side of the patchwork side and attach it to the patchwork side. Sew all edges except for a 25 cm wide turning slot.

3. Turn the pillow over and fill with the fleece.

4. Close the opening with needle and thread. Alternatively, sew buttons or a zipper.
