I decided to do this tutorial because of popular demand. This pet pad is actually the one I made to place into my really popular Recycled Baby Bassinet Pet Bed seen below. Click HERE to see the tutorial.
This project is SOOOO easy! All I used to make this pet pad was a large piece of imitation Faux Fur. The faux fur makes for a non-bulky, fluffy, soft pad that you can either place into a basket, or just lay it out flat. It’s also really easy to clean as I simply just throw it in the washing machine and let it air dry.
Tools & Supplies:
- Fake Faux fur (4ft x 2ft) My finished bed measures 1ft 10in both ways, but you can easily adjust the size that you need
- Sewing machine or needle and thread (you can easily sew this blanket by hand)
I purchased my fake faux fur fabric from Amazon, here are a few colors they offer:
My finished bed measures 1ft 10in both ways, but you can easily adjust the size that you need
First unroll and cut fabric to the length you want. I cut mine 4ft x 2ft
Now make sure fur side is facing up
Fold in half with fur side sandwiched together on the inside
Pin all 3 open sides together
Sew all three sides together leaving an opening on one side to be able to flip fabric right side out
Turn fur right side out
It’s definitely a hit 😉
