    The easiest way to sew it together is most likely the criss-cross hidden stitch.

    Re: New Cozy Bed Instructions

    Here is my attempt at your cozy bed. I actually made it just a little bigger so all the piggies could fit on it. We call it the cozy couch. I added 3 stitches through the middles to keep it from getting too puffy. Thanks for the tutorial. The piggies love it. Here is my youngest kid feeding Christy a fresh green pepper.

    Do you sew with a sewing machine or by hand? By the way I love the cozy I might have to make one for my piggy!

    Re: New Cozy Bed Instructions

    I will do it a little different next time. The hand sewing of the back rest to the main pillow is what was tough for me. My wife says that I am becoming quite the holly homemaker for the piggies.

    It does give you a sense of accomplishment seeing the piggies using something that you made by hand though. Of course it is quite humbling when they jump up on the couch and use it as their litter box. Little buggers don't know how hard it was for me. LOL.

    take a pen that youre going to draw with, and another pen to hold in your hand,then take a thread thats a little longer than of the diameter : 2 of the bed and knit the ends to the pens so that the distance will be exactly diameter : 2 and put the pen on the fabric, and suspend the the thread and go all around with the other pen marking and you have a neat circle in the diameter you wanted. hopefully you understood.

    Re: New Cozy Bed Instructions

    I do exactly as friddee said but I steal a piece of my kids chalk and use it. It seems to write on fabric better for me. I am sure they make something you can buy to write on fabric but who wants to spend money when you don't have to. :-)
