    Dog and-or cat beds

    Made these two beds for our local humane society who needs blankets or beds for animals while they are at the shelter. Our guild has been making them for awhile and finally got two done. Think I saw a tutorial on Facebook or a free website, but they used a recycled sweater. Decided to use a sweatshirt because didn't want their nails to get caught. They were fun to make.

    I saw that free pattern somewhere but decided not to try because sweaters didn't make sense--like the sweatshirts though!

    can you post a tute, you said it was easy, and i think othrs will like making one, go to Salvation army and get some sweatshirt to make them
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I saw this pattern too. I didn't think the sweater was a good idea because their nails would get hung. Using sweatshirts makes more sense.

    Thanks for the compliments. Did go on line just typing making dog/cat beds from sweater and found several sites. Going to type a quick version of what I did in the tutorial section.

    Scraps from the fleece sold at walmart would be good too. They could be multi colored.

    Peg, these are ingenious and will be a place of warmth, comfort and safety for pets or rescues. When I am feeling better I will have to give them a try. Love the simplicity and usefulness!!!!
