Dog Crate Cover Made from Twin Size Bed Sheets
I saw this adorable dog crate cover on Pinterest which linked to a website where they wanted between $300-$500 for a dog crate cover!! Are you kidding me? I was in Walmart looking for a rug for my laundry room and saw this hot pink twin sheet set for $10. I thought, I think I can make a cover from these sheets. It may not be as perfect as the $500 one but for $10 what do I have to lose. I also came across a spool of pink and white polka dot ribbon for $1 that I thought would be cute to use for the tie backs and bows so I threw that in the cart. I used the flat twin sheet as a craft table since I would be needing that. You will only need the fitted sheet and the pillow case. I think I am going to look for a cheap contrasting zebra pillow case when I can find one on clearance but for now, this will do. Take the fitted sheet and fold it in half. Put the folded crease section of the sheet on the top and elastic parts of the sheet will help it wrap around the crate. I folded top corner and then just hand stitched a piece of ribbon to the top. A ruffle would probably look really cute too. You will then cut a very tiny slit in the side just big enough to pull a piece of ribbon through so you can make your "tie-backs". Just tie the ribbon through the crate cage around the sheet and make a pretty bow. Do this for each side. You can then make another bow and just use some thread to whip it around the cage door front for decoration. Total Cost of Project $11. Here is finished "Dog Crate Cover"
