DIY Dog Bed No-Sew

The cost of owning a dog doesn't have to break the bank! When you welcome your sweet furbaby home, I will fully admit, it is seriously hard to resist all.the.dog.things!! Our Ollie was spoiled before she even stepped her little paws in our home. You know what, I don't regret being *that* dog owner for one single second!

However, let's be honest here. Some of the dog accessories can be ridiculously priced! As I mentioned in ways to save money on your pet, I got super lucky finding some amazing pet supplies at a local garage sale! I truly did hit the pet parent jackpot grabbing dog clothes, beds, chew toys and even the clippers (absolute best grab, hands down)!

In saying all of that, since the cost of having a dog can get steep really fast, I'm gonna try to DIY anything that I can! I certainly plan to trim our next puppy's hair and nails myself (maybe not at first, but it's on my list). And, I will definitely be grabbing some fabric and pillows to make this super simple No Sew Dog Bed!

DIY Dog Bed No-Sew Supplies

  • 1 Yard, Fleece Fabric
    You can also do 2 yards of different fabric, 1/2 yard cut at counter will not work because of width.
  • 1 Large Pillow
  • Scissors

Be sure to take take your coupons to any of the popular craft stores before go! Remember, they will take one another's coupons since most accept competitor coupons.

DIY Dog Bed No-Sew Instructions

  1. Fold the fleece fabric in half width-wise and cut down the fold line.
  2. Place a pillow on top of one piece of fleece and place the other piece of fleece over the pillow.
  3. Make sure all sides of fabric are even around the pillow.
  4. Carefully feel the corners of the pillow over the fabric and cut a square out of each corner of doubled fleece.
  5. Carefully cut strips of fabric along each side about 1 1/4” wide, one side at a time.
  6. Tie each strip (top and bottom) together in a double knot.
  7. Start on your next side of the pillow and work your way all the way around the pillow until each side has been tied.

Can you not see yourself making several of these easy DIY dog beds for your pup to have in every room of your home?! Because, that's exactly where my head is going! #dogmomprobs

The adorable pup you see is a friend's pooch (who helped with the pics and the post). How cute is she though?! Seeing her sweet little face makes waiting for our next puppy sooooo hard! I can't wait to share pics with all of you when she is here though in just a few months. I'll be making her very own bed (or multiple beds, LOL) and share that with you too!
