Give a Recycled Sweater Pet Bed and Donate to Animal Shelters

by on Dec 1, 2010

Ordinarily, I’d try to figure out how to make these cozy little sweater pet beds, but when designer, Susan Lowe Heap, owner of only charges $25.00-$30.00 for her handmade wool felted cat or dog beds, and donates 5% of all proceeds to various animal shelters, I must step back and respect her tremendous creativity and generosity. Susan

A light blue dog bed has white seams.

scours thrift stores for wool sweaters to wash and felt, donating yet again.  She softens up the sweaters and then somehow pads and molds these into snuggly beds animals can’t seem to resist. What started out as a desire to help orphaned animals be more comfortable during their stay at a shelter has evolved into a local and online business for Susan. This toasty nest would be the perfect Christmas gift for the new animal owner, or how about a side gift to go along with a rescued pet?
