For a lot of us, pets are a part of the family. We love them, we take care of them, and they love us back. So why not give them a little gift? Pet beds in the bog box stores can be super expensive, and not really washable. So, I set out to make a washable easy pet bed for my cats that was cheap enough to make one for each (we have three).

The result is easy, inexpensive and kid friendly! What a great gift for a pet birthday, or a project for a rainy day. So far my kitties all approve (although they like the bed in a corner more than in the middle of the living room floor). And, I can periodically take the cover off and wash it!

What You Need:

  • Pool noodles. The cat bed only took one. For a larger dog’s bed 2 might be needed.
  • 2 pieces of Fleece large enough to go around your bed with 4-6 inches excess (The cat beds took less than a yard. A larger dog bed would take more)
  • Packing tape
  • Scissors
  • Batting (optional)

How To Make It:

  1. Bend your pool noodles into a circle. I only used one, but you could tape two together and then bend them. Tape the circle closed.

  2. Lay out your bottom fleece and put the ring on top. Trace around the ring. Trim your fleece into a circle leaving 4-6 inches excess from the tracing you made.

  3. Cut strips up to the line you traced, about 2 inches each.

  4. Repeat with the top fleece, making sure to cut the same number of strips.
  5. Make a sandwich for the bottom fleece, ring, and top fleece. If you want extra padding for your pet, you can add a few layers of batting in the center of the ring.
  6. Begin loosely tying the fleece strips together. Work your way around.

  7. Done! If you ever need to wash it, just untie a few strips and pull out the ring and batting. Wash, and then put back together!
