Project by Paula Milner- The Crafty Lass


You Will Need:

  • Fabric

  • Thread

  • Inner pillow


Craft Essentials:

  • Sewing Machine

  • Fabric Scissors

  • Pins

  • Tape Measure

  • Iron


A great little simple sewing make using an old pillow as the inner for your pet bed.


How to Make

1. Select, Cut & Press

Select, measure and cut out your fabrics - I have used ‘Wild Violets’ from The Crafty Lass Petal and Pip fabric range. The measurements were based on the pillow inner we had spare! So you can easily adapt these, but I used as below. Press if needed.


1 Front piece 64cm x 40cm

2 Back pieces 45cm x 40cm



2. Back Pieces- Sew

Turn one of the back piece 40cm edges over by 1.5cm and sew using a 1cm seam allowance a straight running stitch to secure. Repeat with the second back piece.



3. Assemble

Place the front piece right side up and then lay the back pieces on to this with right sides together and pin into position if required.



4. Sew

Using a 1cm seam allowance sew around the edge and secure your threads.



5. Turn Out

Turn out the right way and push the corners out. Press if required.



6. Inner

Insert your pillow into the case before letting your pet get snuggly!


Et voila… One pet bed!
