I recently bought two adorable piggies and went looking for fun things they could play with but found that there wasn't much for sale around here. So, after making really ugly cheap looking tubes out of plastic milk bottles, I decided they needed to look a bit better for all of our sakes.

If anyone could help me think of a name for this cutie little girl it would be much appreciated! At the moment I'm calling her bear because I think she looks like a teddy bear with her big ears and brown nosie but bear sounds so boyish
. She has a really playful tomboy personality too so girly girl names sound a bit funny.
I had to cut the long tube in half because Minnie would walk halfway in and plop down and stop bear from getting through!
I cut circular strips of plastic from the milk bottle and fed them through channels I made in the fabric to keep the tunnels rounded. I got the idea from the craftster clothing section, where people were using plastic bottles to make cheap corset boning. Also because its plastic, it is washable, but I'm not sure if my sewing would hold up well in the washing machine. This could be used for other small animals too like ferrets, it's so cheap, in my case free because I used scrap fabric!
