One of our favorite custom-fabric projects of all time is the doppelgänger dog pillow. Originally dreamed up by Spoonflower co-founder Stephen, this brilliantly clever pillow was designed for Ruby, the first of the two rescue dogs that have come to live in Stephen and Kim’s home. Since then, the project has exploded — and we’ve seen everything from hedgehog to bunny rabbit versions stitched up by our customers. Get inspired and learn to make your own snuggly pet pillow!
Spoonflower is excited to announce a special limited edition item: adorable corgi pillows. Made from Spoonflower’s Eco Canvas, these cute pillows starred in our tribute to Queen Elizabeth II to mark Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.
For every sustainably produced pillow sold, Spoonflower will donate $12 to The Coalition to Unchain Dogs. Help fight against animal abuse while cuddling up with a corgi pillow. [Read more…] about We Need Your Help to Spay, Neuter & Unchain Dogs
Has your pet been requesting a bed upgrade? Are they looking for something that better defines their personality than what’s available at your local pet store? Today, Spoonflower crew member Allie shares a fun how-to for creating a custom doughnut dog bed. Get the design here. Use her notes to create your own fried dough-inspired pet bed, or take her tips and make your own custom shape!
Earlier this year I got a golden retriever, which, subsequently, dramatically changed the life of Grace, my seven year old shih tzu. For seven years, she had been my only pet and thus was quite spoiled–until Ben came along and ruined everything for her.
Her basket of toys were quickly shredded and with all of her toys went her cozy little dog bed. In looking for a new bed for Grace, I thought it would be cool to make her an engineered dog bed. After toying with a few ideas, I decided on to run with the idea of a doughnut!
There are clothing and accessories for dogs and cats that are helpful and fun, and there are those that are likely to just embarrass your dog friend. We’ve compiled five sew projects that we think have utility and merit to them, in addition to being unbelievably cute. Summer is a great time of year to hang out next to the air conditioner and get started on those winter holiday gifts for friends and pet companions alike!

Yesterday, we shared a handful of lovely little DIYs for your favorite furry friend. Today, Spoonflower crew member, Meredith, visits the blog to share a full how-to on how she created a custom dog feeding station for her newly adopted companion, Alligator! Read on as she walks you through step-by-step to create your own version.
At the beginning of the year, I became a proud parent of the sweetest four legged friend (though I may be biased), named Alligator. With her adoption quickly approaching, I couldn’t wait to get started on projects for the pup using Spoonflower. An Eco Canvas dog bed, a Cotton Poplin bandana…the projects were quite endless, but I knew not everything had to use fabric.
After a few weeks of having Alligator at home, I wanted to take her dining experience to the next level with an upcycled dog feeding station! After all, no ‘gator should be eating off the floor! With a bit of thrift shop hunting, power tool prowess, and the help of Spoonflower’s Woven Wallpaper, this ‘gator was dining in style! Follow along as I turn a regular storage cabinet into the Gator Grill!
- Cabinet or box that is the right height for your pet and can hold 2-3 metal bowls (I found a cabinet at the local thrift shop!)
- 2-3 metal dog food bowls with rims
- Permanent marker
- Compass, circle cutter, or string
- Drill with 1/2″ bit
- Sandpaper (optional)
