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.

This is so cute! Very resourceful to make it out of a bumper and scraps. Knowing how puppies like to chew on everything, maybe it's good you made two of them. Looks so cozy, I wouldn't mind sleeping in something like that myself.  Grin

What an excellent idea using the crib bumper for the sides of the beds! These turned out great, well done!  Cheesy

Dang what a great idea! and cute too

I have a bumper from when my kids were little which wasn't too long ago at all, but I don't think my mom would like to walk in and see the dog using it since she made it for me!! But it would be cute..........hummmm

This is awesome! I had posted a while ago to see if anyone had any uses for crib bumpers. They come in such great patterns and really only  used for such a small period! Off to make my dog and  my sisters dog and my SIL's dog and my friend's dog......
