DIY Cheap and Easy Pet Bed Tutorial from Made in Pretoria here. This uses the same technique for making those fleece blankets. Please watch your dogs with any toys or beds with ties like these. You don’t want to spend $1,000 on surgery to get non food items out of your dog (from painful personal experience).

DIY Deep Pockets Fleece Scarf Tutorial from by Delia Creates for Skip To My Lou here. Really easy tutorial that uses 1/2 yard of fleece. This would make a practical and pretty gift.
DIY Really Easy Suede and Fleece Throw Tutorial from In Honor of Design here. The questions I get the most are about mending and DIY gifts for men. This is a double sided fabric (one side suede, one side fleece) that she got at Joann Fabrics. She used 2 yards and a 50% off coupon (print it online) and her total was $25.

DIY Rat Fleece Hammock or for Other Small Animals. I had rats as pets (and they were great pets) and had them in a ferret cage with a plastic material hammock that you couldn’t wash so this would have been ideal. Tutorial from craft nectar here.
This will save people with small animals a lot of money. I know this from personal experience :)
