How to Make a PVC Pet Cot or Bed Video will show you step-by-step how to sew an elevated dog bed or cot. This dog bed is made from PVC pipe and outdoor mesh fabric from Sailrite. Making the frame is easy and the sewing can usually be accomplished with a home sewing machine. We made this bed from Sunbrella Sling fabric, so it’s easy to clean and tough enough to resist ripping.
