Making a Pet Bed from Wool Strips

I was blessed with tons of many styles and patterns of wool fabric strips. Most are 1 inch to 3 inch strips. I really would like to make several pet beds for pets in shelters or for their fundraisers. Is there someone on here with patterns or just some bright ideas on how and what other projects can be made from these?

That's a wonderful thing to do for the animals. You could try making the strips into rag rugs by sewing the ends together and braiding them, which could make some nice mats or car beds for pets.

Wool sometimes makes a dog and cat lose it's hair but the rug idea sounds great. If you zigzag them together you can make a lap pad from them using different colors for the old folks home.
