I plan on getting a dog soon so i figured id make a pet bed to match the house colors. What do you think? The best part yet It only cost me 9 dollars! and there was enough fabric to make TWO beds!
the pillow is reversible, a cool side and a warm fuzzy side!
and the tutorial!
I actually made it from a baby crib bumper, some stuffing and a baby blanket, and some extra scrap fabric(that wont be visible) that gave me enough material to make TWO dog beds and still have some fabric left over for doggy toys
1. I cut the crib bumper into four pieces,
2. Then I cut the entry hole out so the doggy can walk in and out of it easier.
3. (the walls of the puppy bed where already stitched together so all I had to do is cut out a circle of scrap fabric and stitch it into the same stitch the bed bumper was at! totally invisible to see the fabric and since i used a feltish material i didnt have to worry about having to fold it over or worry about it fraying.
4. Then with the left over bed bumper fabric I cut out a circle and with the blanket fabric cut out anothor one and stitched them together to form the beds pillow!
ps: I havnt finished making the second one thats why theres only a photo of one bed, but it will end up looking exactly the same.
