Note: These directions provide a variation of the Free Small Pet Bed Pattern

Materials:* Materials are almost the same as for small pet bed with the following exceptions.

  • This large pet bed will require 5 yards of fabric.
  • 5 -- 20 oz. bags of stuffing.
  • Enough thick interfacing for two floor base pieces. (If your interfacing is not wide enough, butt the edges and zigzag the joint.)
Pattern Variations to create the large pet bed pattern: Using the Inner Base of Pet Bed (Pillow) pattern piece
  • Add 3" to both sides on a folded paper the same way you did to make the original pillow base. This creates the large floor base
  • Add 2" on each folded side to create the large floor pillow base, the same way you did the other pieces, using a paper folded in quarters.
  • >
Cutting Variations to Create a Large Pet Bed
  • Cut 3 of the floor base
  • Cut 6 -- 15" strips for the sides. Use three sections for each side section
  • Use a 90" piece of piping on the upper edge of the sides.
