Sun lounger for dogs – a necessary thing in everyday life of any dog breeder. The pet should know where its permanent place in the house is, which should be equipped with a comfortable and warm bedding so that the dog does not freeze during the cold season. Ready loungers for large dogs (and small ones too) are quite expensive.
Pattern dog beds
Depending on the size of the pet, you will need from 1.5 to 2 meters of fleece or other material. First, we cut out from it two circles with a diameter of 60 cm. (The pattern for a dog for a dog presented in the lesson is designed for a small dog).
Then you need to cut two strips 120 cm long. And 10 cm wide for the sidewalls. By the way, it is not necessary that the lounger should be round – you can make both a square and an oval – the simplicity of the cut allows you to express your imagination. Do not forget to leave seam allowances at least 2 cm. Along the perimeter of each part.

So, two cut strips for sidewall need to sew into one. Stitch the edges with a regular seam, then you can sew the edge with a zigzag seam.
Take one of the circles cut out of the fleece and your sidewall tape, fold them face up inwards. Using the pins, pin off the edges of the circle and tape. Then take a needle with thread and stitch. Leave about 20 cm around the perimeter of the circle unstitched. Now you can get a sewing machine and overdue your design.
The edges can also be zigzag treated to make the seam stronger. After that, you must sew the second circle (bottom or top of the sunbed) with the strip in exactly the same way. Do not forget to remove the basting threads after sewing the parts on a typewriter! Now you have to finish the side seam.
Using pins, pin off the edges of the sidewall, bottom and top of the bed bench that were left unstitched (20 cm). Cut off the excess fabric of the sidewall so that you can bend inside the edges of 10 cm in size. On each side. The edges also pin with pins. Baste the edges and stitch them on a typewriter.
Your bed is almost ready – you only have a notch left through which you will fill the bed with filler. Take out your design there. It is time to choose a filler. For this purpose, we can recommend holofiber or other synthetic filler, which is usually filled with pillows.
Such fillers are very convenient – they do not absorb the smell, do not rot, do not lose their shape. In addition, most synthetic materials are hypoallergenic and do not lose their properties over time. You can even save and rip for this purpose the old pillow – however, one will hardly suffice to fill the beds.
Fill your bedding with filler. To assess the elasticity and convenience, put your pet on it. You need only sew the sidewall. Take a needle with a thread of the right color. Stick the needle on the back of the fold and make a stitch on the opposite side.
Thus carefully sew the sidewall. In the future, you can easily sew such a seam and re-sew it if you need to add “stuffing” to the pillow.
That’s it – now you know how to make a dog bed! We are sure that your pet will appreciate this comfortable and soft bedding. You can also choose different fabrics for the lounger, depending on your preferences.
