First off, I'd like to thank tabooCREATIONS for inspiring me to make my own ferret bed.
Secondly, go look at hers: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225098.0
So I originally just planned on making a monster bed, but when it came down to cut out the pattern I got lazy and realized a fish would be the easiest thing to make.
I just made up the pattern as I went along. The outside fabric I've been dragging around with me for about oh, 4 years now, same with the fleece inside.
Basically it's lined in fleece, and the bottom is stuffed with that poly fill to make it extra comfy. I did the eyes and the teeth with some felt I had kicking around. The fish is pretty much the same as tabooCREATIONS bed, with the big mouth and then the backdoor.
It's only about 90% finished here, but I was so psyched about it I had to post it on here now. I plan on making a net out of extra yarn I have, and then using that to attach the fish to the cage. This way, the fish will be able to be removed from the net incase I change up their cage and want to use the fish as a bed on the floor of the cage and not a hanging bed.
I'll add another picture once I make the net.
That said, on with the pictures!
Sorry for the lack of quality since I had to resort to my webcam. And don't mind me creeping it up in the majority of them either.
Oh and big thanks to my ferret Pete who helped demo the bed.
