    First Cage Liners

    It's my first try. I've had the liner in for 24 hours now and still no smell, the guinea pigs honestly don't smell as good as when they were pine scented now they just smell like fur and guinea pigs. ha! Ben (brown one with bum feet) seems to like the fleece more but Eddy doesn't seem to care either way.

    Those are adorable! I love how it matches, The cushions are so cute. How did you make the arrow one? Was the arrow already on it or did you add it?

    @ Ollieandfriends - This is how I did it. It's really easy to do if you know just some basic of a sewing machine. =D

    Very cute themed cage! Your boys are adorable.

    You might need more hidey though. How about adding traffic light fleece forest?

    Thank for the link Inle_Rabbit! Sadly I don't have any sewing skills so I might have to get my mom or someone to help me out

    I think a fleece forest would look so cute!

    @ Lissie - Thank you! I actually have another pigloo I just took out for the pictures since I wanted to show off the fleece. My son and I are constructing an upstairs to the cage right now once that is done we were going to add a fleece forest for the boys so probably Monday or Tuesday. I think they would like one of those, they keep trying to cuddle with one another but they are still too stand-offish to actually do it! It's so funny because one will sleep inside a pigloo and the other will sleep right outside but if they get too close they start purring at each other. Silly pigs.

    @Ollie - Now's the time to learn to sew! I learned from watching YouTube videos and reading blogs while I was pregnant with my second son. I was determined to sew his crib bedding and it took me 4 months but I did it! I whipped all that up in a little over an hour. All during nap time. =D

    Re: First Cage Liners

    I'm looking to sell a 3 foot by 5 foot by 6 inch coroplast box with custom made washable fleece liner. I ordered it from piggybedspreads.com but only used it 2-3 times. As soon as I adopted Wilbur he needed surgery right away to remove a painful bladder stone. He's recovered nicely but i'd like to sell the extra playpen to help cover the expense. The liner is well-made of quilted fleece in puzzle and royal blue sidewalls, an absorbant layer, and a waterproof layer. I only have the coroplast tray and liner, not selling any cubes or wire enclosure - you'll have to buy or make that on your own please. Asking 100 USD OBO. Local delivery/pickup ok in southern New England ... not sure if it could be shipped further away?
