Pet bed...recycle reuse eggcrate foam mattress cover

Thursday, April 15, 2010

 I cut two pieces of eggcrate foam the same size.  Then I cut out a strip of fabric large enough to sew into a pillowcase large enough to enclose the foam.  After inserting the foam into the pillowcase shape, I then used quilting thread and stitched up the ends.  I wanted to use a different thread and one that is easy to see and remove, as I will remove the stitching should I need to wash it.  I could have also used sewable velcro or snaps, but figured the quick basting was easier.  

Please Note* If you pet is the type that likes to try to eat his bedding, foam is not a suitable material to use for their bedding.

The eggcrate foam is great for reusing to make seatcovers for outdoor chairs  or table chairs, pet beds, etc...
