Home-Made Pet Bed
Part of our basic standards of care is to provide each cat and dog with a soft blanket or bed on which to sleep on. We use a variety of items throughout the shelter, including towels, blankets and fleece, but the best possible item is a home-made pet bed. We’ve created the following tutorial to help you make just that – a soft and easy to wash bed that a cat or dog will be sure to enjoy.
Time to create: Each No Sew Pet Bed is a one-hour project
- Cut two 48 x 26 inch rectangles to make a dog bed or 26 x 13 inch rectangles for a cat bed. Lay the two pieces on top of one another.
- Cut 1 inch wide strips around the whole perimeter of the fabric (the cuts should go several inches in). Slice both layers at once.
- Take one strip from the top layer and tie it to the corresponding strip beneath, creating a secure knot.
- Tie the knots for all four edges.
