It's probably not the best marketing plan to do a tutorial on how to make a cat/dog bed for free and in less than 60 seconds.
Especially when I have been working on making handmade painted pet beds to sale.
But, oh well! Here ya go!
                            My first tutorial:
First get a towel. A big one, a beach towel would be perfect.

Lay it out flat.

Take a hold of the lower left hand corner...
I suppose you could do it from the right, but I'm left-handed,
so I'm saying left.
Start to roll it.

Keep rolling.

If you don't have a huge surface you will have to turn it but keep rolling and then
STOP. How much you leave kinda depends on the size of the pet. After you do it once, you will be able to judge.

Now take the end on the left hand side and curve it up.

Then take the right hand side and do the same.

Take the piece laying flat and pull it up and over.

Tuck it in.

Now for the test....she jumps in!


Perfect! and Cat approved!

A free bed that you can shake out and wash.
If you have a large dog, you can use a blanket.
I make these for my boarders.
The little grey cat is "Lacey".
She lives at the clinic and likes to "help" me.

Clever idea! I'm going to have to do this for Binks. He's always stealing Lita's bed.

Smart Idea!
But would one use for a dogs in the size of Blue or Orvar, a huge rug :-) :-)

Have a great day!

this is a great solution for the person that can't stand the fact that dog beds can't be washed easily and she's a bit anal retentive in the odor, yeah, me.

Thanks! I'll definitely try it. It's a nice solution for a bed in a crate because the sides will cuddle the pet.

So sweet- the bed and the appreciator.
