    Materials:
    - Suitcase
    - Foam
    - Scissors
    - Fabric

    Directions:
    1. Choose an empty suitcase that’s large enough for your pet to fit comfortably in.

    2. Measure and cut out a piece of foam to fit inside of the suitcase. You can add multiple layers of foam for more cushion.

    3. Choose a fun fabric to place over the foam. Cut out a piece that is larger than the area of the suitcase (you'll need the extra length to secure the fabric).

    4. Place the fabric over the foam and tuck it in at the edges and corners. For a more secure fit, you can also take two pieces of fabric (both large enough to cover the foam) and sew them at the edges to create a pillowcase to cover the foam with.

    5. Present your furry friend with their comfy new bed and add in their favorite toys!
