My first project of 2014: a bed for my friend Gus. 40x24x8.5". 1680d ballistic nylon.

The bed is made of one piece of fabric (about two yards). There's a seam underneath with a Velcro opening, two side seams, and the corner seams. Real easy to make.
It's filled with an old memory foam mattress top folded to size. I've heard that old clothes make a good dog-bed filler, too.
The bed is fairly airtight so adding some grommets might be in the future. Apparently it's pretty loud when he jumps on it.
Thanks, Ben, for the great photo.
