    DIY Fleece pellet bowl??

    I was going through the pics one day and I saw that someone had made a little fleece bag type bowl to use for their pellets does anyone know how I could make one????? I would love to use something smaller for their pellets then a huge bowl. Would love to get a few of those nice Staybowls but can't afford those at the moment.

    Any my help is appreciated!!!

    If you can post or link to the picture I could try to figure out how it was made.

    Looks like she may have just taken cloth and covered the bowl and just put a rubber band around it.

    That's what I was thinking too, but from the side it looks like it might actually be a little fleece sack with the top rolled down. To be honest I don't see why this would be preferable to a regular bowl, but you could probably make one just like a miniature snuggle sack and roll it down to be a bowl shape.

    My bowls are scratched and chewed on and stuff so the cloth bowls would never look like that.

    It's cute. Unfortunately mine would think it's a bed and start sleeping in the pellets (they already sleep under the hay a lot), .

    @ Rywen. Personally I think it would make more mess with the pellet dust on the fleece. Try a heavier cat or dog ceramic dish, they're not all big, they come in different sizes, and they're cheap in Walmart. In the meantime save up for a STAYbowl.
    Good luck!

    Not a fleece bowl, but I got this at my local petstore for about $5 and love it! It's a really hard, sturdy material that is supposedly made from bamboo. It's non-tippable. I found it in the dog/cat bowl section but it's also online.
