Patchwork pet bed

Jenny Ryan, author of “Sew Darn Cute: 30 Sweet and Simple Projects to Sew & Embellish” needed a cozy place for her pup to sleep, but she was on a budget so she decided to make the bed herself. She bought wool sweaters at a thrift store, grabbed an old pillow from the closet and stitched together this colorful pet bed.
