    Fleece Liner Help!

    Hullo all! So, I am trying to sew fleece liners for a 3x6. So, before I even tried, I decided to start with practice ones for my 2x6. So I bought some cheap Walmart fleece and some U-haul pads for like $3 off Ebay. I measured, sewed, and I made about 3. And I can't figure out what I did wrong...

    Rant: Bad Petsitter Problems! >:(

    Ok, so this post will pretty much just be a rant. Anyway, A couple weeks ago I went on a 10 day vacation with my family to Canada. Obviously, we needed someone to care for our pets, so we called one of my Mom's friends who had taken care of our pets before and was wonderful. She came over, and...

    Hello all! So, I was just wondering, what water bottles do you use? Or do you use a water bowl? Also, where do you get your water?
