15 DIY Pet Beds Your can Make at Home

Posted on Jul 5 2016 - 10:42pm by Susan Bewley

How many of you go through dog beds like crazy? Up until recently, Ivi was going through one dog bed a month. While she is very gentle with her toys, she isn’t so gentle on beds. It seems that she loves finding new and creative ways to destroy them, leaving mom and dad quite frustrated (and feeling like we have stock in PetSmart). While we have a Kuranda bed for our office that the girls love sleeping on, it is a bit hard to carry around the house with its size, making it great for us to have pillow beds that we can move around easily. Rather than constantly buying beds, however, we decided to start trying to make our own dog beds for both Ivi and Rylie both.

Even though I am pretty good at sewing (I know enough to be dangerous), I really didn’t know how to do anything too creative. Knowing that many of you are like me, I decided to ask my blogger friends, who shared with me some of the cutest dog beds out that you can easily make at home. Many of these DIY dog beds are easy to make, while others are for more advanced DIYers. No matter which category you are in, we are certain you will find a perfect bed for own dog in this list! We’d love to know which is your favorite bed on our list of 15 DIY Dog Beds!
