If anyone wants to try making the giant cuddle bed, here is the pattern I created:

--Lay a piece of prewashed cotton on a piece of prewashed fleece.

--Using a sharpie tied on a string, draw a giant circle. The circle for mine had a radius of 17 inches (diameter of about 34 in.), so the sharpie was on a 17 inch length of yarn, which I held down at center point with one hand, and drew a large perfect circle with the other. (string + marker = ultimate compass hack)  Grin

--Cut out circle and sew two pcs together, leaving small opening to turn.

--Turn, and now sew around edges again, created tunnel for elastic.

--Run elastic thru tunnel, using a giant safety pin at the end of the elastic to work it thru with your hands (another handy sewing hack).

--Sinch elastic tight and tie off; close sm opening with hand stiches or machine.

--Fill center with scraps.

Just saw on USPS tracking that my package to Leashhh was finally delivered! (Yay!)

So, since it won't be spoiling any surprises, here are the pics I took of what I made for Leashhh before sending out (sorry about the rushed "carpet-photos"!):

Since she has ferrets, I decided I wanted to crochet a ferret amigurumi:





I found a really cute pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ferrets but I made some changes to the pattern (leaving off the eyes and ears) to make the 'gurumi completely smooth and ferret-safe...crocheted using cotton yarn for safety and durability.

Next, I made a stretchy "bed" or giant "cuddle cup" for her fur babies; it was inspired by this item that I saw on her pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/150659550004276188/



I created the pattern myself: inside is fleece, outside is cotton. And I filled it with fleece scraps and swatches that the babies can cuddle with when they are inside Smiley

Lastly, I added a necklace I made using polymer clay and glass beads...I thought it went nicely with the colors of the other items, and would be something special for Leashhh:



Thanks for looking! Leashhh: hope your furbabies love their items Smiley

I received from partner "hippycannibal" today!
For some reason had trouble logging on and I keep kicking myself out Roll Eyes. I'm also having trouble uploading photos. I can only upload 1 photo so I'm going to post a photo of everything received for now and again try later.




LOVE love that purple-and-gold contrast on the painting, the bright pink "minky" fabric, and looks like some fun twine toys there! what a great package Smiley

the shaping on this is amazing....you've created a garment that literally "looks like a drawing" (that's what my mom and I always say to describe any object or person with a gorgeous element of LINE, as in 'that guy is so handsome; his face looks like a drawing!')   Grin

all the details and shaping! if you ever decide to draft the pattern and sell it as a PDF, please send me a link so I can purchase it!
