This is a cover for my dog's cage. I made to help keep him warm and also for privacy. It has a flap in the front you can tie up or let it down to have the cover closed yet allow him access to go in and out.


Approximate Time: 45 minutes



  1. First measure each side of the cage and cut pieces big enough for all areas (top, front and sides, but not bottom) to be covered. Allow an extra 1 inch for seam allowance.
  2. Sew the four sides around the top piece. Keep fitting it over the cage to be sure they are the correct size.
  3. Do not sew the front flap. This will be used as a door so the dog can walk through and go in or out as he pleases. Or you can attach a tie to the top of the cover and tie it up if you wish to have it open.
  4. Hem the bottom of the cover.
  5. Put a hem in the 2 pieces that make up the flap.
  6. Cut some strips of fabric about 4 inches long and 1 inch wide to use as ties to hold it to the cage.
  7. Sew 2 ties in each corner. Wrap around the bars of the cage and tie to prevent the cover from moving around. These will hold it securely.

Let Rover inspect it and enjoy!

Our dog's crate takes up a lot of room in the living room. Any ideas for hiding it or making it useful?

Thanks in advance!
