DIY Puppy Pillow + Natural Dog Food

Let’s take a small break from people food and talk about feeding our four-legged friends. Max is the best dog ever and so much a part of our family that I really try to be conscientious about what goes into his doggy bowl. We also love to pamper him with foods that he will enjoy! To show Max how much we love him and reward him for being such a wonderful family pet, not only did I start feeding Max Purina® Beyond® Grain Free dog food, but Madelyn and I decided to create a soft and comfy puppy pillow for his lazy days.
Purina® Beyond® Grain Free dog food is the perfect food for Max! It’s a natural, wholesome blend of quality products to fuel him through his day and morning runs with me! He has plenty of energy and is our spunky little guy whether the kids are playing chase with him through the house or I’m training him to do new tricks. 🙂
Purina® Beyond® dry dog food plus vitamins and minerals is a high quality, grain free dog food that has real meat, fish or poultry as the #1 ingredient. It is also free of corn, wheat and soy and there are no added artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
I found the idea for our puppy pillow on Pinterest and here is the link to the original tutorial that I followed. The supplies and materials used for creating our big fluffy pillow were two pieces of thick fabric measured at 1.5 yards each, about 64 oz. polyfil, measuring tape and scissors (preferably fabric scissors).
Lay the two pieces of fabric on top of each other and make sure that the correct side is facing outward. Then cut through both pieces of fabric to take a 5″ x 5″ square away from each corner.
Next, cut fringe pieces across the edges of each side of the blanket (cutting through both pieces of fabric). Measure about 1.5 inches wide per strip. Do not cut the strips more than 5 inches in length.
Now, tie the fringe into knots (leaving one side open for stuffing), and ensure the knots align and close the blanket. You may want to occasionally pull the blanket so that it doesn’t get too gathered in one area.
And the last step is to stuff your pillow- oops, I forgot to snap a photo. I used 64 oz. polyfil, but use more or less, depending on how firm you want your pillow. Be sure to stuff all corners and all the way to each side. Also, pull the polyfil apart and fluff it up before inserting. Occasionally, shake the filling around for even distribution.
Our DIY pillow was a huge success and Madelyn was able to help in a major way. I love DIY projects that can easily involve the kiddos. She even made the comment that the day was not boring because we were making Max’s pillow. 🙂
Max is sitting pretty on his cozy pillow! He absolutely loves it… almost as much as Madelyn does!
Something to think about….
Have you ever made anything for your pet?
I found Purina® Beyond® Grain Free dog food while shopping at my local H-E-B. It was located down the dog food aisle and placed with the other all-natural dog foods.
