My pigs LOVE these hammocks!! They are so fun!



STEP 1:



Cut a 19 in. square of fleece. Cut it in half diagonally to make 2 triangles.

STEP 2: Sew the 2 triangles together (rights sides together) leaving a space to turn it inside out. Turn it inside out and sew all the way around the triangle. You should have one triangle now with the dimensions above.



STEP 3: Sew two little strips of fleece to each corner as ties.

STEP 4 (optional): Sew 2 (6in. x 26in.) rectangles together (right sides together, leave a space to turn it inside out.) Turn it inside out and sew all the way around the rectangle.



STEP 5 (optional): Sew the rectangle on the hammock to make a hidey flap as shown below.

STEP 6: Put it in your cage and watch your pigs explore on it! =)




**I hang mine 7.5 inches from the ground, and it works perfectly!**

I love this. I wonder if I could use the stitch witchery instead of sewing? I don't have a machine.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This was the only thing I really didn't have for my cage and I was going to buy one online but now I can make one! Thanks so much!

I'm not exactly sure what "stitch witchery" is, but if you are a good hand sewer, this is a fairly simple project!

Oooh! Can't wait to make this for my pigs cage - lately, I've been trying out different hideys, but no success with any. Hopefully this works out! Thanks a bunch!

I have made these for my rats, but not my GPs yet. I really like the extra rectangle, creates a hidey under there! Good idea, I'm going to have to try this.

This is great! Thanks! I was using one of my ferrets extra large hammocks for the pigs but it is the kind that hangs from bars above. I recently redid the cage to an open cage. This is a perfect way to give them back a hammy. Levi really loved his hammy. :)

Sorry, I just noticed this. Yes, Piggy Palace is still up and running! I've heard they now take commissions and will make a unique design at your request. Fairy over at Guinea Lynx had THIS (http://www.guinealynx.info/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1819210#1819210) four-poster bed made!
