Repurpose your scraps of fabric and batting...

Nimble Thimbles now has a place to donate completed dog beds. Arizona Friends of Gilbert has agreed to take donated beds to go with the adopted pets. If you go to their web site, you can gain more information.

As to making the beds, it is very easy. The size of dog beds vary by the size of the folding cages that the organization uses to transport them to be adopted. Here is a sampling: 12 x 20, 30 x 30, 18 x 30, 16 x 22, 24 x 38, 22 x 34, 27 x 45, 16 x 20, 26 x 42.

The material needed for the beds are fabric scraps and batting pieces. A recommended depth for the scrap filling is maybe 2-3 inches. Please go through donated material a second time to ensure that pins, needles, paper or trash is not present.

Bring your donated scraps to any Nimble Thimble meeting and give to Kathy O'Brien
Thank you.
