|We just use old pillows for animal beds.|
Lay one towel on the floor. Lay your pillow on top of the towel, closer to one edge of the towel. Leaving the same amount on the opposite edge, cut off the excess. Don't discard as you'll be making an envelope closure for this pillow. (Great tutorial on envelope closures here.)
|Lay the pillow you're using on one towel.|
Putting the finished edge on the inside makes this a quick project. Your
envelope folds are already finished.
Now you'll take your second towel and cut it to a length that is one half the width of your pillow and lay it on top of the other two pieces of towel that you've already cut, making sure to put the finished edge on the inside of the pillow, just like you did with the second piece. Pin all three layers together and sew around the outside edge.
|Sew all around the edge...in some places you'll be going through three layers|
of towel...just be sure to catch those inside edge.
Flip your pillow cover right side out and insert your pillow. Lay it on the floor and see who gets it first.
|Dog bed? Either way, this one is in Buttercup's room now.|
Well, either way, cat or dog, it is an animal bed that cost $7 and twenty minutes to make. It is oh-so-washable. Just what we need in this menagerie!
|If you don't have a serger, you can just zig zag the edges.|
