This portable pet carrier is easy to make and doesn't cost a lot in materials. The mesh top is removable so the basket can be used for an outing or at home as a pet bed.
hot glue gun
sewing machine and black thread
picnic basket with handles
1 pillow case or pillow coverlet
1 plastic tablecloth
stuffing or scrap material for bedding
1 yard of mesh material for the cover
wood craft letters (dog's name)
1 small safety pin
Fold a plastic tablecloth in half and lay it on your workspace. Place the basket upside down on top of the tablecloth and use a pen to mark the size of the basket on the tablecloth. Cut the tablecloth (double-sided) at least 3 inches larger than the marking to allow for the seam and stuffing. Sew the two pieces together almost all the way; leave an opening to add the stuffing. Then sew that last piece together.
