OK, so I don’t know that I would have ever made a homemade pet bed at all, but I saw one like this made out of the super soft, silky material I had once for my son’s crib. Dog lover that I am, I felt it necessary to offer my pup the same thing my kid had, you know? However, the one I saw in the store was $100, so I looked for a tutorial to make one myself. Gotta love Youtube and all the crafters in the world. Follow the step by step sewing tutorial for the fluffiest DIY pet bed ever, perfect for both dogs and cats. A fun weekend DIY for animal lovers, this one also makes an awesome do it yourself gift for friends who have furry friends.
Fold up 2 times like a blanket into quarters.
Using a scissor cut and round the open corners.
Place both fabrics with the fluffy side out on top of each other and secure with pins.
Get the cotton stuffing and have it marked by your pet (i.e. cats can knead on them so they can leave their scent). This step is optional.
Cut open the middle part to insert the cotton stuffing and sew around it to close completely.
And now we are ready to fill the sides with cotton stuffing. From the edge of the cotton stuffing in the center, sew a pattern traversing the side to leave enough room for the cotton stuffing.
Fill the chamber with cotton and after each filling, close the opening with quilt seam. Do the quilt seam 10 times to give your pet bed extra durability.
You can add ribbons and other accessories to customize the design and your DIY Fluffy Pet Bed for Cat and Dog is done!
