I LOVE my staple gun. This one is a sure thing! You'll need one to make this DIY dog bed.


Webbing for a DIY Dog Bed

I've worked with the polypro webbing on many diy projects. It's very strong and comes in a variety of colors and styles. .

If you prefer, use a tack hammer with tacks to install webbing instead of a staple gun.

DIY Dog Bed - Fleece Tie No-Sew

DIY No-Sew Fleece Dog Bed

User LilFiney on fashioned this simple fleece no-sew dog bed for her pup. It was so well received, she returned to the site and published a tutorial (with pictures!) so you can make a diy dog bed for a special canine in your life.

I love LilFiney's tutorial! The ONLY change I personally would make would be this: Before cutting the 4 inch long ties I would machine stitch 4 1/2" from the edge the entire circumference of the two joined circles leaving a 12 inch opening for stuffing the dog bed. This stitched line would serve to reinforce the joining of the two circles and hopefully prevent my dog from chewing on any stuffing that may possibly escape. :)

DIY Dog Bed - No Sew Version #2

Another version of the no-sew DIY dog bed can be found at the blog, Luigi & Me. This crafty lady stuffed her dog pillow with old clothes instead of buying store bought stuffing. She also cinched the center of the pillow with a piece of elastic. I think it looks great, don't you?

      Love the lens! It has encouraged me to think seriously about making my own dog bed. Thanks for the inspiration.
