We stripped out the carpeting in our house this fall and replaced it with hardwood floors. The one most affected by this decision is our favorite dog, who is now more limited in where he can comfortably nap, so I quickly got about making a new dog bed for him to make him feel a little more at home.
My favorite materials for making a dog bed are actually very easy to come by — spoiler alert: I use a memory foam mattress topper and outdoor fabric — and they’re not all that expensive. With a little sewing know-how, you can make one of these too for <$25.
