DIY Suitcase Pet Bed
My version of the DIY Suitcase Pet Bed is pretty simple (like most things I do).
A pillow, polyester stuffing, or something squishy
Cowboy hat or other fun acessories
Buy/find a suitcase
Well I purchased my suitcase from a thrift store for $1.99 . Très vintage… you could smell the vintage-ness.
Remove top of suitcase
For my suitcase I literally just ripped it in half… But a better way would be to use a drill or a screwdriver.
Measure the interior of the suitcase
Or simply find a cushion or pillow that fits inside the suitcase. Most standard pillows will fit inside a suitcase. I used my old foam mattress topper. I love reusing and repurposing things!
*just remember to leave a few extra inches when taking measurements. This allows you to have extra fabric to work with just incase you encounter a problem
Make the Cushion
I chose nautical themed fabric to match my living room. I got it on sale at Hancock Fabrics months ago. The cowboy hat? It serves no real purpose 🙂
I added a sisal border to add to the nautical theme. My mom helped a lot with this project. I am not really the patient type. She helped measure everything out and made sure I didn’t aimlessly cut things! This project has been in the making for over a year now. It’s so nice to finally have it completed!
Let me know what you think 🙂
