When talking about pet cushions are they for the animal or for your room. The answer can be both. These could reflect your favourite animals or pets and also provide a matching colour for your settee. Whatever the outcome they can be a focal point and give cause for discussion.
Cushions make from panels showing different types of animals can bring the African bush, the Amazon rainforest, the Australian wilderness or the English garden into your room, if the love of animals is on the wild side.
Picture panels can be bought with lots of different types of wildlife printed on them.
can be made into wonderful cushion covers for a basic design or made
into a quillow with the internal quilt showing more of the theme on the
front. Both pictures shown were made into quillows. The dog panel shown above was on the front and inside the material had dog paws printed on it and the cat one had stripes of different colours of brown that was on the front.
These panels could also be made into wall hangings instead and used like a picture on your wall.
For your domesticated pets, cosy bedding can be made to provide them with a place to sleep or a cushioned bed for them. These can be made to fit the size of the basket or the box to give your pets extra warmth and comfort. Pets like to have a warm bed to lie in and it is a good idea to have a few dotted around so they have a choice and can be near you if they want to be.
Making bedding for a Cat is fairly straightforward and apart from the occasional paw
padding cats use to get comfortable they should last quite a long time. Cats sometimes need a variety of beds so they can choose where they would like to rest.
I made some for my cats baskets when they were just kittens and they lasted 20 years. Apart from a little colour fading they were still good and had been used well.
Dog bedding is very different mainly due to the wear or mainly tear these will have to endure. Puppies have sharp teeth, bored dogs chew, and their claws and rip a cushion in half.
With all this in mind your dog still enjoys a comfortable bed to sleep in and if it has other things to bite and chew may leave the bed alone. If not then at least you know that these can be replaced fairly quickly.
Bedding can be made to fit into wicker or plastic beds and if wanted a bought one could always be recovered to suit the colour of the room.
If you are not confident in making them for your pet. The Range has a good supply of animal beds.
