DIY: Pet Bed

The past week my boyfriend adopted a baby bunny - the cutest ever!
Thumper is 6 weeks old, and full of personality.
I found the idea for this DIY from Sewplicity.

I made this pet bed from a pair red river/work socks, and a little extra piece of upholstery fabric for the base, along with stuffing/batting to make it soft.

I cut the toe of each sock, and sewed the two together, putting the seams on the inside of the sock tube.
I found the best way to do this was turning one sock inside out, and leaving one sock the right way. Then pulling the right way sock, through the tube of the wrong way sock, and sewing one of the ends together. When you pull them out, it then makes one big tube. I did the sewing by hand.

From there I stuffed the tubes with stuffing/batting, and then sewed the final ends together, creating an O. 

The base was made from two square of material. I put the O on top of the fabric, so I could get an idea of the size I needed, and then cut two pieces, and put some of the stuffing/batting inbetween them.

Next, I used the technique from sewplicity, sewing the base to the O, and then turning it inside out.

I used iron on transfer paper to make the little name tag for the front, and sewed it on.

Very quick and simple - and he loves it!
