    Has anyone tried this for Christmas decorations? I am trying to reduce the hauling.

      Have covered my sofa, chairs and some bed pillows with this fabric method for holidays and/or seasons.

      That's so sweet of you to think of the puppies like that. But you know that sometimes they like to lay on cool or cold floors to cool their tummies. My spoiled (yes I said it) baby girl would love this one too! She already thinks she's a Prima Donna as it is! I think I may use a warm fabric for winter and a different one for summer. Thanks Kay!
