Please help, I'm looking for a pattern for a "cozy cave dog bed". I'm not sure how to attach pictures yet on PR, but if you google "cozy cave dog bed" you will see what I mean. It's really a simple round dog bed with a "hood" I'm just not sure how to get the hood part to stay slightly open like in the pictures on Google. It's really useful especially if your dog likes to make a den/burrow in his bedding!

Thanks Showell, I had a look, perhaps it's just me but I'm a visual learner. I couldn't follow the pattern easily. Would have been great if there were more pictures. Thanks again

I really like this pattern as Showell has kindly supplied. Has anyone tried to follow the instructions, or is there is a simplified version that someone has tried? I cannot find a pattern for this style of dog bed anywhere. I think I could probably wing it, but I want the hood part to stay slightly open, so my dog can slip into it a little easier. What can I do to get the hood to be open a tad? Also I don't need a zipper, as our South African sun will dry anything to a crisp

My dogs have had a store-bought one of those beds for several years. The hood part was held open by a piece of curved plastic that resembled a piece of a hula hoop.

Thank you SO much for posting this link. My 13-year-old min pin works crazy hard every night to get his blanket to fit him like a burrito! I'm making him this bed in hopes he'll have an easier time. Hopefully, we can post some photos of our new doggie digs.

I've made something similar for my friends Italian Greyhounds. I think the cozy cave is down filled maybe? Not sure.

Mine were fleece. Three pieces of fleece, two the same size, one 1 and a 1/2 times the width. One piece of batting. I finished one edge of the longer piece of fleece first. I sandwiched them all together...fleece, batting, longer piece of fleece and last piece so the longer piece ends up on the top when you flip it right side out. Also, I folded up the unfinished edge to be the length of the others into a pleat.

The pleated piece I made a bit shorter the other direction so it isn't quite as long. Sew the pieces all together and flip right side out. Finish the edge where you turned it. Mine didn't have anything to keep up the edge because her dogs loved to burrow. You could use some type of corset boning though and run it through the edge you finished first. I think that would work well.

I hope this make sense...it does in my head
