How to Make a Cat Bed out of an Old T-Shirt


If you’re like most cat parents, you love your feline friend but hate the idea of spending a fortune on store-bought cat beds. Fortunately, there’s a thrifty alternative that will please both you and your cat: a no-sew cat bed made from an old t-shirt!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own no-sew cat bed:

An old t-shirt


A ruler or measuring tape

A pillow

First, cut the t-shirt into three equal pieces. To do this, lay the shirt flat on a surface and cut off the bottom hem. Then, cut the shirt in half vertically, and finally cut each of those halves in half horizontally. You should now have six equal-sized rectangles of fabric.

Next, take two of the rectangles and fold them in half lengthwise, so that they’re now long, skinny rectangles. These will be the sides of your cat bed.

Now, take the remaining four rectangles and fold them in half horizontally. These will be the top and bottom of your cat bed.

To assemble the bed, first lay down one of the long, skinny rectangles (this will be a side). Then, place two of the short, wide rectangles on top of it (these will be the top and bottom). Finally, add the last long, skinny rectangle on top (this will be the other side).

If your cat bed looks a little wonky, don’t worry! It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Once your cat bed is assembled, it’s time to add the pillow. Just stuff the pillow into the bed and voila! Your no-sew cat bed is complete.

Your cat will love snuggling up in their new bed, and you’ll love how inexpensive and easy it was to make. Win-win!
