Every holiday season we lug out the tubs of decorations and table settings to make our homes look and feel festive. Why not add a little seasonal cheer to our pets as well? I’m not talking about dressing them up as a pilgrim or strapping mistletoe to their collar; I’m talking about decorating their bed. Everything else in the house is getting a makeover, why not the dog bed too?
No-sew fleece blankets are simple to make and easy to keep clean (just throw it in the wash). It can simply drape over your existing pet bed and you can choose the fabric to match any holiday, sports team, or theme you want. Not only is fleece comfy but it’ll give your pet a little extra warmth this winter. Don’t have a pet bed? That’s fine too. Fleece blankets can just as easily go on the couch or bed to help contain the pet fur left behind.
No-Sew Fleece blanket
How much material?
You can decide how big you want your pet blanket. Look at how wide the blanket is and keep in mind that most fabric is folded in half when sold by the yard. Your fabric could be anywhere from 21 inches to 1 1/2 yards.
Things you’ll need:
· Two pieces of fleece the same size. Piece may be the same pattern, two different patterns, two plain colors or a pattern on one side and a plain color on the other.
· Scissors (sharp ones or fabric scissors if you have them)
