    What do you think of my sewing?

    These are my second and third attempts at sewing guinea pig beds by HAND. Took me ages haha.
    But I like the cupcake and heart material :)

    Wondering if I should sell these types of things. Would people buy them?

    Super cute. You did a good job, I would definitely buy one if they're sold at a reasonable price.

    Just a reminder that if you do decide to sell them, you can't advertise on here. Go over to Guinea Pig Cages, Care, Shelters, Veterinarians - Guinea Pig Zone -- it's optimized for search engines, and you'll get more traffic.

    @aubrey & @Aleks: Awh thank you of course they'd be cheap because I sewed them by hand and can't guarantee they would last as long as machine made examples, however I will be double stitching in the future

    Re: What do you think of my sewing?

    @piggi_zone: I went into a fabric store and asked for 'wadding' which is what my stuffing is, but I think in America they call it 'batting', so you could just ask for either of those, they're the same thing, people just use different names. Hope that helps

    @Amy262: Me too! I've nearly finished my etsy, and then I'll open up shop. I've just got to sort out the billing parts and such.
    It's exciting
    So many people have started sewing for piggies, so there's lots to learn and buy xD
    I've also put my stuff on the guineapigzone to see if there's any interest on there
