this was bailey's old cot that never got used. (i think she didn't like the feel of the coolaroo fabric. her little footsies are too delicate and the mesh was kinda rough.) hubby was gonna throw it out but the frame was still in good condition, so i thought if i just replaced the mesh with a nice fabric, maybe she'd like it better.
so i went to the fabric store and picked this outdoor duck cloth. luckily bailey approved. i took off the coolaroo mesh and used that as a template for the new fabric.
now, i am not a seamstress in any sense of the word, but i think it came out pretty good, even if i do say so myself. plus it's just so much prettier.

Bailey, your cot looks a lot like the quilt my Humans have on their bed in the mountains. It is cheery and beautiful.
Y'all come by now,

That is pawsome! We have one of those and it needs a new cover on it. We might be able to get our aunt to do this for us ... Thanks for the idea!ReplyDelete

It is so much prettier now! You did a fantastic job and I love the new fabric. It looks as if Bailey definitely approves. ☺ReplyDelete
Great idea! Just replace the cover instead of replacing the whole thing. Bailey thanks you and the environment thanks you.ReplyDelete
Our cots all ripped apart, this is a great idea. I will have Mom look into sewing us some fun new covers.ReplyDelete
And I'll bet she loved the colorReplyDelete
Great job updating! I bet the fabric feels much nicer for her now :)ReplyDelete
Betcha that feels so much nice...not to mention looks so much brighter and prettier...matches Bailey so much better!ReplyDelete
Bailey, I too love it. Mommy did a wonderful job on your cot and of course love the color as well.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! We have two cots like this - time for some updating!ReplyDelete
