If you can sew basic straight stitches, there's a tutorial on eHow for a really squishy pet pillow. I've made one for my little guy, and he loves it. My little guy is a lurcher, a whippet/collie cross. He inherited the bony hips that most greyhounds and whippets have. There's just enough cushioning that he doesn't grumble about being on the floor.

There's also a tutorial on making chew toys out of rags, old t-shirts, or fabric scraps. It's no hassle, no sew, and every dog I've ever made one for loves them. I've given them to some aggressive chewers, too, and they usually last pretty long.

If nothing else, and you've got some baking skills, you can always make some homemade dog treats.  I've made these using milk that's gone sour (the bacteria bakes out), and the dogs went NUTS over them. You can substitute any flavorings, or even beef bullion, for the liquids. It's a really versatile recipe:
