I stole this idea from Chubby Pixie (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=118567.0). She made an adorable flower hammock for her Guinea Pigs out of polar fleece and I just knew that my rats would love it for ever and ever or until they chewed it all up. So.. I set to work and I made a blue one for my little babies. Mine is not nearly as nice as hers... but my rats enjoyed it until they chewed through one of the ribbons that held it up.. now they have to wait until I replace that. Oh well. Without further ado:

What cute lil' muffins! Golly i love rats and wish i had some more!
Your flower hammock looks very well made, your boys seems to be enjoying it. My girls were never hammock fans, they prefered sturdier things.

It was chubby pixie's idea... I just created my own version of it. But, they did love it until they chewed off the clips... now I have to make more... which I will eventually do... lol.

Very cute! It looks really snuggly.  Smiley My ratties too loved hammocks. I've been debating on getting some more lately... Roll Eyes
