My mom had a brilliant idea for homemade pet beds today.
~Old pillows (or new ones, if you're that kind of person)
~Fleece throws (again, old or new; old is cheaper)
~Needle or sewing machine, and thread
Basically, you just sew the fleece throws into pillow cases for your old pillows. For average-sized throws and average-sized pillows, fold the throw in half hamburger-style, then hamburger again, and sew two of the adjacent sides shut, leaving one open. (this makes enough sense to me, but if it doesn't to you, you know I love comments and questions) Insert pillow, and you've got yourself a cat/dog/pig/whatever bed. :)
