I think the companies that make these dog beds are attempting to pick colors and patterns that will go with any decor, but herein lies the problem. These round, frumpy dog beds are usually an atrocious mix of pattern on top of pattern and clashing colors, which I guess is supposed to go with the color and style of any room...? Umm...fail! You probably know what I'm talking about if you have seen these generic dog beds at your local pet store.
So, for the people out there who want their dog to have his/her own comfortable space but who refuse to sacrifice style and a bunch of dough, I think I have a really simple solution. (If you like this, please consider visiting my blog for more DIY tutorials: http://31diy.blogspot.com. Thanks!)
Materials - 1.5 yards of fabric of your choice ($5 for mine); standard pillow (used or new for $6); sewing machine (mine was $22) (or plain old needle and thread will work); measuring tape ($1); scissors ($2)
Time - approximately 10 minutes
