Pet Bed – Dollar Tree No-Sew Dog Craft

While this pet bed is for small dogs, you can use the same steps to make one for larger dogs. However, if making for a larger dog you may want to skip using cotton and use cotton stuffing.

Makes: 1 Small Pet Bed
Skill: Super Easy
Time: about 30 minutes

Supplies needed to make the bed

Supplies Needed:

  • Scissors
  • 2 Fleece Baby Blankets (any print or color)
  • 5 Packs 100 Count Cotton Balls

Cut off edge of blanket with scissors

How To Make This Dog Craft:

If your blankets have a thread around the edge like mine, you will need to carefully the thread off. I find it easiest to just trim the whole edge on both blankets. Don’t cut much of the fabric just at the edge with the thread.
Cut fringes around edge of blanket
Then cut the edge of the blankets into fringes. Make cuts about every inch or so. You want each cut to be 2-3 inches long. Cut the edges of both blankets.

After you have the edges cut, lay the blankets on top of each other so that the shapes match.
Tie blankets together with fringes
Then start to tie the two blankets together. Grab one firing from one blanket and tie it to another fringe on the other blanket.

Make sure you tie the fringes tight so they do not pull apart.

Work around the blankets till you are most of the way around. Leave 6 or so fringes un-tied.
Stuff cotton into blankets
Through those open fringes, stuff the blankets with all the cotton balls. Or stuffing if you are using that.

The last thing you need to do is close up those open fringes. Tie the rest of the fringes closed and you are done!

Do You Have To Use Fleece Blankets?

The short answer to that is, NO!

This type of new sew pet bed can be made with other fabrics too. Other than fleece, cotton flannel or t-shirt fabric work best.

These can be made in any size too. Simply use larger fabric or blanket and more stuffing.

Yield: 1 Small Pet Bed
