Transform Your Old Sweater Into an Ultra-Cozy Pet Bed
Give your four-legged friends a warm and cozy hug — all the time — with an upcycled sweater bed.
- long-sleeve sweater
- pillow stuffing
- needle + thread
- dressmaker pins
Lay the sweater flat on a table. Fold the collar inside the sweater, then sew the opening shut with a needle and thread. Note: Choose a thread that blends in or coordinates with your sweater.
Sew from the left armpit to the right armpit, creating an arch about three inches from the collar.
Add pillow stuffing to both arms.
Insert foam into the sweater body.
Fold the bottom of the sweater inside, then sew shut with a needle and thread.
Put the left sleeve into the right sleeve, then sew together with a needle and thread.
Sew the stuffed arms to the body of the sweater with a needle and thread.
Fluff and form the bed to create a cozy nap spot for your furry friends.
