Simba's Pet Pad

Taking a short break in the homemade holiday gift ideas to share a little personal project with you...an embroidered "pet pad" (or at least that is what I am calling it) for my baby boy Simba. Simba LOVES to ride in my new Jeep, but I was concerned about my leather interior, so I decided to make him his own seat blanket and embroider his name on it. I made it with the softest no-pill fleece and machine embroidered his name and a paw print on the front...then inserted a 15" x 17" piece of NU-Foam Densified Batting...making the perfect sized pad! He loves it so much, he was sleeping on it before it even made it to the Jeep...I almost put a crown over his name (instead of a paw print) because he definitely lives like a little king!

More holiday gift ideas are coming soon...and I guess if you have a pet that likes to travel, you can consider this entry a homemade gift idea...


  1. So cute. Glad he enjoy it. ~ Dawn ~

  2. Oh such a lovely pad for such a cute dog, my hubby and I so want to adopt a pooch like Simba he has such character, you just want to cuddle him x

  3. Lovely! I think a crown would have been very appropriate - he's such a prince!
    Wishing you and all your dear ones a Happy Thanksgiving.
