pet pillow panache...

Pet beds can be super expensive and yet rarely, they come in designs that will match your decor.   However, you can easily sew one of your own that will fit right into your living space.

I had some fabric left over from a previous project.

I folded the fabric in half and cut it a little under 2' x 2'

Next, sew 2 seams along the edges.

Be sure to leave one side open.

Turn the fabric right side out to sew the interior square.

You can alter the width, but I aimed for a little under 4".

This is a perfect project to recycle the stuffing from an old bed pillow, also, your pet will be comforted by your scent.

Stuff both the outer and inner areas.

Next, sew a seam to close off the inner square.

Fold the edges under to sew the final open side.

Be sure to leave a couple inches open,

so that you can finish stuffing the edge.

Stitch the last bit together and you're done.

And there you have it, a purrrfectly color coordinated pet :- )
