    Lightbulb Instructions: How to make a Corner Hammock

    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.

    Re: Instructions: How to make a Corner Hammock

    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.

    does anyone know if Piggy Palace is still up and running? their ebay store doesn't have anything listed - the websites says they are re-stocking but they have not responede to multiple e-mails. I think their stuff is adorable and want to order but not if they're not responding

    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 four-poster bed made! Here's the link to Piggy Palace: index
