Weekly updates from BLDG 25


a dog bed made of free people bags! our store manager in greenwich sent me the following photos and blurb that was so cute i had to share…

alison is from new york city and is one of our favorite customers in greenwich connecticut.  she saved and recycled our free people shopping bags to make a bed for her dog!  alison cut the fabric into small pieces and wrapped it carefully around a wire cord to create a base for the bed.  she then continued to double the wire cord and wrap the free people fabric strips around as she built the bed walls.  we think it looks amazing and her dogs are very happy campers!

alison made the bed for chelsea, the english cocker spaniel pictured above – but her other dog, ollie (below), likes to steal it because it’s so comfy!


those dogs do look very content! i love this project…it also sort of reminds me of the rag rugs we posted a little while ago (here). hmmm…maybe you could make a rag rug out of free people bags??

thanks for sharing alison!
