How to Make a Bed for Your Dog Using Fleece or Scrap Fabric

Team Fleece Dog BedA great fabric to use for a dog bed or a pillow bed for a dog is fleece.  Dogs love it because it is soft and warm.  Fleece can be washed over and over again for a dogs comfort.  When washing fabric for pets be sure to use a natural detergent or baking soda and white vinegar (as fabric softener) to keep them from inhaling perfumes or toxins as they rest.

Blizzard Fleece Fabric-Brown/Tan Paw Fabric , , hi-resSelect a fabric for your dog bed or pillow. One of our favorites is this paw print fabric  because of the washability and durability of the fleece.  Use a standard inexpensive bed pillow and some polyfil to make the bed as large or small as you want.  You can also use batting and stuffing for the bed and scrap fabric or even fabric shower curtains.  Measure and cut the fabric to fit the pillow and sew up the ends, making the corners square by folding them up at the ends.
