How to make Leather Pet Bed

Follow Me on Pinterest















I made this chic, but not so shabby pet bed for my kitty cat.

If you have a cat, I'm sure you've already noticed that cats love to jump into or crawl into boxes.  This gives them the feeling of being protected, like going into a cave.  This pet bed looks much nicer than a plain cardboard box lying around the family room. 

I made this one-of-a-kind custom leather pet bed out of an orange box, leather purse, old leather jacket, and some quilting batting. 

This bed would work great for a small dog too!

Here's how I did it:

I used a cardboard orange crate for the base and covered the sides with batting, so it would be nice and soft.

I cut an old black leather purse of mine in half.  This was the perfect size to put over the ends of the bed. 
I sized batting to fit the pieces I cut, but kept it a little smaller, about a 1-1/2 inch from the 3 of

the edges.

I cut up an old brown worn leather coat to use for the inside walls, and sides of the pet bed.

I used a glue gun to glue the pieces together.  I didn't use a sewing machine at all, or even a needle!

Notice the cording on the black portion of leather at the end of the bed.  This is the flap from my old purse.  I just glued the brown leather around the box and then glued the purse end over the top of it.
