DIY No Sew Dog Bed

DIY no sew fleece dog bed.

  Our weird more like a cat than a dog, Petey, recently demolished his extra large super comfy expensive dog bed. Apparently it wasn't cushy enough for him so he pawed it to death trying to get it just right. Bad dog.

 Since good dog beds are freakishly expensive I hit up Pinterest looking for the diy cheaper options and found several that intrigued me. While I would have no problem sewing any of the options I've found I still wanted something that wouldn't require a huge amount of time, money or energy.

 Finally I hit the jackpot and came across a fleece version that I knew would work. You can find my inspiration here.

 You can use anything for the stuffing; blankets, sheets, stuffing. I used 2 old pillows that I had just laying around. I'm all for upcycling. I picked up some fleece from the store and got started.

  Here it is all laid out. I folded the fleece in half and trimmed it down around the pillows. I did it this way to minimize the process.  Then cut the edges into 1 inch-ish strips and knotted the strips all the way around.

  The finished bed. Nice and plump and it only cost me around $4.00. Yay for frugal.
 Best part is the dog took to it right away.

* If you've never made a no sew fleece blanket there are several great tutorials on Youtube.
