    Things to make out of fleece?

    I'm just wondering about things to make out of fleece for guinea pigs? I'm going to try and make a pom-pom, a tunnel and a hanging bed (I probably won't hang it though :P) I know about cozy sacks and cuddle cups also. Is there anything else to make?

    Fleece forests! It's literally THE easiest thing to make. You don't need any sewing skills and you don't even need much fleece. Just take your scrap fleece and cut it into strips, then tie the strips to a spare grid or the roof of your cage.



    VOILA!

    Pigs love these because they're fun to hide in, and owners love them because it's a lot tougher for the piggies to muck them up with pee/poop.

    Yep, definately make a fleece forest! I've made one that is easily washed (see attached photo). This thread tells you how to make one: http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/...ce-forest.html

    If you have enough, you could make a cozy or a cuddle cup. Here is my tutorial for a cozy sack: http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/...cozy-sack.html

    If you want to put stuffed animals in the cage, take out the stuffing and replace with fleece scraps to make it safer.

    Thanks! I wanted to make a bed for them but was hesitant to use stuffing, in case the fleece ripped and they ate it. I will definitely consider fleece strips!

    Just grab all the little scraps of fleece u have and just ball it up and put it in their cage ...I know my guineas would enjoy playing in fleece and hiding under it

    Go on etsy and search guinea pig beds

    that will give you ideas

    I've done that. You can make fleece forrests, hay bags, all sorts of hidies etc.

    I put just squares of fleece into the girls' cage and they drag it round and hide under it. I usually find it pulled into thier hidey houses.
