Step by Step Dog Bed Instructions

pattern DIY Handmade Dog Bed without Sewing This is a simple DIY project that you can complete under an hour. In this video I will walk you through making your dog bed step by step.
1. Print out or make your pattern.
2. Cut out the pattern and lay your pattern on the fleece fabric. Use sewing pins to prevent slippage. Once the fabric is cut remove pattern. You will need two pieces you can cut these together or separate.
3. Go Around the edge of the fleece to cut straight lines every 1.5 inch apart, and 3.5 inches in length. Be sure to cut through both layers of fleece, this will create strips for tying knots.
4. Tie each of the cut strips into neat knots around the entire oval; leave six untied.
5. Stuff the dog bed with stuffing or use an old pillow.
6. Finish the bed off by tying the remaining strips into knots. cut2 DIY Handmade Dog Bed without Sewing
