Old Suitcase into a Pet Bed
We all love our furry friends, so let’s show them our love by creating a haven just for them, decorated in their favourite memories with you.
Rip out the old, stained material inside on the bottom.
Find an old suitcase and clean it with a non-toxic cleaner.
Gather your materials for replacing the upholstery. You’ll need material (cotton works well, such as an old T-shirt), a cushion that nestles into the bottom, and optional decorations (such as ribbon and photos).
Cover the inside of the base and the cushion in your material and glue them down into the suitcase.
Cover the inside of the lid with a fuzzy material by gluing it in place. This step is optional if the lid already looks nice.
If one cushion doesn’t fit perfectly in the base, you can create a second cushion by wrapping Styrofoam peanuts or cloth in material.
Glue the smaller cushion down next to the larger cushion to make the base snug.
Collect decorations such as ribbons, bows, yarn, and pictures.
Attach photos of you and your pet to the inner lid (with a needle and thread or glue) and decorate with your materials.
Voila! The finished product is a cozy bed for your pet where he can sleep amongst memories of your adventures together.
