We got a dog a while ago, she sheds all year round, so i had to make her a bed for the front room.
I was in the pet sop shocked at the price of beds big enough for my dog, they are so expensive! so i decided to make my own. Its so easy to make! and also VERY cheap! all you need is:
Some offcuts of some reasonably thick fabric (It needs to be thick so your pets claws dont go through it)
Sewing machince / needle
Quilt/duvet/ pillow (quilt for dog, Pillow for cat)

Step 1: Choose your size

Different pets need different sized beds. Find out how big your pet is, and give it a little extra space for movement. (For medium sized dogs, fold the quilt/duvet in half) For a cat, use a pillow. Cut the duvet to the right size and sew up the edges.
One photo would be too large for a cat. One is the right size :)
