Need sewn dog bumper For bed?

Dimensions arent super picky. But i need an L-ish shaped pillow/bumper thing for my dog for the corner of my bed.

The 2 inside of the L dimensions would be 24× 27 inches. I would prefer it be at least 4inches wide by 6in tall. 4x4 would be fine if if just needs to be round.

Needs to be able to withstand the washing machine weekly.

Ive been meaning to do this myself but im just never going to get around to it.

Looking for something better than our current set up

What if it were a cover for body pillow (they are longer than king-size pillows)? Or are you shooting specifically for something with a smaller squishy footprint than a regular pillow?

My one concern would be that an “L” wouldn’t stay in an "L shape without some sort of connector.

Dog is cute! looks like fox.

I am looking for something smaller because the pillows take up half the footspace of my bed

I don’t really care if it curves a bit i was just hoping to reclaim a few inches of footspace. Those pillows are just so wide.

And thank you she’s very aware she’s cute and takes advantage of the house guests for attention

Wait! How cushy does it have to be? Like, could it just be pool-noodle cushy? I’ve been thinking about the issue of putting something of those dimensions in the average washing machine. But – if we made a casing, with the pool-noodle parts stacked in a triangle, then you could wash the casing easily, and restuffing the pool noodles would be easy-peasy. Providing, of course, that that would provide enough cush.

That might be an okay arrangement. I didn’t think of that.

Really im just trying to keep her from migrating across the bed. She moves around a lot without a barrier and does not do well if startled in sleep so its just best to keep her separate. The pillows do that reasonably well they’re just wide.

So did anybody agree to help you with this?

Not so far.

So do you want to try the fatter pool noodle option? They aren’t 6” diameter-more like 3.5”.

I was perusing some web stuff yesterday, and this image popped up:

The chair design is rather perplexing, but it made me think that a pair of old jeans could be used to make the bumper concept.

Omg, that’s hilarious.

I would be interested in trying the pool noodle thing though. Sounds reasonable to slip them out and wash the cover.

Yeah, I was thinking that would be the easiest to deal with cleaning. Stuffing is hard enough to get into a pillowcase. Getting it into a tube would not be pretty unless you had a full-length zipper or velcro closure.

I’ll work on cobbling version 1 together.
