You may remember that before Christmas I did a blog on how I recycle all of my left over threads from quilting, sewing, knitting etc into Dog Beds.
This is the most current one of these (yes - that whole pillow if full of left over pieces too small to do anything with). My son decided that his dog (not my choice of dog) needed one of these. So, here is Butterball (my son named him) dozing on his newly acquired pillow.
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
