Repurpose a Suitcase Into a Pet Bed

by Morena Hockley
I love crafting with repurposed items! It's such a thrill to take something that is no longer used and turn it into something useful and unexpected. When it came time to get a new pet bed for my dog, I decided to make my own...from a suitcase, of course! It is a total DIY dog bed.
This pet bed is kind of a reflection of my life. My husband and I loved to travel internationally when we were first married. We saw so many wonderful places in the world together! The addition of kids, and pets, slowed us down.
Supplies for DIY Dog Bed:

Thrifted hard shell suitcase

DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint and Stencil

Project Foam

Vintage Keys Duck Fabric

Aleene's Fabric Fusion Tape

(Optional) Stickers
I can guarantee that no other dog has a bed quite like this one! When you do it yourself, you can make items that matches match your personality, like I did with this no sew suitcase pet bed. You could easily make your own pet bed in different colors or sizes to meet your needs. Have fun crafting and creating!
