Making a dog bed is a fun and rewarding experience for you and your dog. This dog bed is an easy craft that doesn’t cost much, and simple sewing projects like this one are a great way to hone your sewing skills.
Take your dog's length measurement as she's lying on the floor. Make sure you allow enough room on all sides for her to be comfortable. For a medium-sized dog, like a Golden Retriever, this measurement will be about 3 ½ feet.
Pin your fabrics with the right sides together. Place your pins 1 ½ inch away from the edges for your seam allowance. Repeat this process for three sides of the fabric, leaving one side open.
Turn the fabric right side out. Roll up the batting, insert it through the open side of the dog bed, then carefully unroll it and smooth it out.
Back-tack the last inch or so of the seam to make it extra durable.
