At long last, I have it sewn together.
I can leave it in the Science committee area for you when I’m there Tuesday evening for my CA meeting or mail it to you. If you choose mail, I’ll need you to PM an address, as the one in Maker Manager doesn’t appear to be a functional address.
you need to acquire one of the fat pool noodles. Since the season is essentially over, you might have to resort to going to Leslie’s Pool Supply or such to find one. (sorry about that…) I perused other options like those foam roller thingies for workouts ($5 at those FiveBelow stores), but the diameter is significantly larger than I made this sucker. Again, sorry 'bout that. But not really…
I had originally thought I would sew a triangle of fabric to the bottom to hold the two sides at a right angle (or less), but then it occurred to me that I didn’t actually know which side of the bed you needed the dog to stay on. So I opted to sew a loop of nylon web into the seam at each end that you can use another cord to tie at the appropriate angle.
I also made a drawstring channel at each end to allow easy slide-in/slide-out of the noodles or stuffing so you can wash the outside. I attempted to buy cheap shoestrings at Daiso to accomplish this. No such luck. They only had shoestrings that were really long. So you may want to replace these with a more appropriate option. I would have used elastic and a couple of those cord stops, but my gigantic multicolored collection of cord stops has mysteriously disappeared. Dang.
Noodle1 - shows the diameter difference between the fat ones and the normal ones.
I didn’t try it, but it might take two small ones side-by-side…
Noodle2 - shows the fit of the fat noodle in the sleeve. As it happens, the seam ended up on top in the photo. But it’s actually the bottom of the design. You can kinda see the white(ish) loop on the right side for connecting the a(squared) and b(squared) sides in a Pythagorean Theorum illustration.
