I wanted to buy my dog a mattress for her bed, but the store versions were just too expensive. I turned an empty polypropylene bag and old newspapers into a recycled dog mattress. Very cost-effective and my dog loves it!

Materials:

  • empty polypropylene bag
  • old newspapers
  • standard scissors
  • semi-circular needle
  • cotton embroidery floss

Instructions for making the project:

  1. Wash the bag, turn it inside out, and hang to dry thoroughly.
  2. Turn the bag right side out before making the mattress.
  3. Cut the newspapers in strips.
  4. Separate and crumple each strip before adding it to the bag.
  5. Once the bag is full enough, fold down the top of the bag towards the inside.
  6. Use a blanket stitch to sew the bag closed.
  7. Use as is, or cover it with a dog blanket, which makes it easier to keep the mattress clean.
