DIY for Pets

There is a lot of diy activity going on but how much is focused on pets?  There are many ways to show creativity and simple living by making things that are useful for pets.  Throw in some comfort and the four-legged family members are happy and content.  Take a look.

First is a cat bed made from a sweater.  I found this on but there is no tutorial.  I believe that just about anyone can stuff a sweater into the shape shown and make the necessary stitching to complete the project.  A great way to repurpose an old sweater.

I do not know the source of the dog bowl chairs but it is a great idea for use with older dogs.  Cut a hole to fit the bowl and it is set to go.

Making this cat bed should be a snap using basic crochet techniques.  This came from the zen of making. com with all the directions found here

Go forth and produce something for your pets.

Meanwhile .... keep it simple and make it real.



  1. I've just picked up my 15mm crochet hook and am now looking for suitable jersey fabric. Thanks for the link.
