Dog Bed Review Molly Mutt

Making your own dog bed with Molly Mutt is super easy…in fact the only hard part for us was deciding which of their 25+ beautiful and stylish designs to choose!

If you haven’t already heard about Molly Mutt, you might be wondering exactly what this DIY Dog Bed is and why you’d want one. Daisy and I will explain.

How Molly Mutt works
  • Molly Mutt makes individual components that you can buy separately and use together to create your own dog bed, or cover an old one to give it a brand new look! These include: the Molly Mutt 100% Cotton Duvet Cover, the Mesh Stuff Sack, and the Armor Water-Resistant Liner.

DIY Dog Bed Kit

If you’re looking to just cover an old dog bed, you can skip the Stuff Sack, but if you want to truly create your own dog bed, you can use old t-shirts, pillows, towels, coats, blankets, pajamas…basically anything that you have lying around taking up space that you want to get rid of, and stuff it all into the mesh Stuff Sack to hold all your stuff together and create a custom dog bed for your fur kid. It also makes it super easy to wash since you can just throw the whole sack in the wash!

I did a full KonMari when we moved last year, so I didn’t have a ton of stuff to stuff in the sack, but I did have some extra pillows and a knitted blanket that was all snagged up thanks to Daisy’s claws!

We need some new towels, so as soon as we get them, some of the old ones will get added to Daisy’s new Molly Mutt bed to make it just a little bit firmer. That’s what I love about it: not only do you get to re-use old stuff and reduce waste that would end up in landfills, but you also have complete control in customizing the firmness of your dog’s bed. Daisy likes her bed kind of medium, but you can make your dog bed squishy or firm, or whatever your pup likes!

The armor lining goes over the mesh stuff sack, and then the duvet cover goes over that. Everything zips up and fits nicely…super quick and easy, like changing a pillow case.

The other really neat part is that it’s also super easy to clean. You just zip off the duvet cover and cold water wash, tumble dry low. And, as long as whatever you’ve stuffed your sack with is machine washable, you can throw all that in the wash as well. Using the Armor inner liner helps keep the stuffing dry and clean, and is also great for older dogs and those prone to accidents. We’re using Daisy’s new bed both inside and out on our patio, so it’s great having the water-resistant liner for the bed. Even though it’s a covered patio, stuff can still get damp when it rains…which happens a lot this time of year in South Florida! If you like using your dog’s bed outdoors then we highly recommend you get the Armor liner.

Molly Mutt dog beds come in 4 sizes: petite under 15 lbs, small 15 – 30 lbs, med/large 30 – 70 lbs, and huge over 70 lbs. As I mentioned, the hardest part is choosing which design…they are all so gorgeous.
