I have a brand new sewing machine which I have finally used - my first sewing project of my adult life is this lovely hammock for my pet rats:



And here it is modeled by Beatrice:



Within 12 hours they already chewed a hole in it, so I guess they like it Smiley

That's great!  I'm thinking my cat would like something like that for themselves (the hammock,not the rats)...

That's so cute! The pockets are awesome. What fabric is that? How many rats have ya' got? I have 9 in one cage, and any hammock that enters their domain is soon ripped to itty, bitty shreds.

It's fleece which I cut from blankets my bf bought for cheap. I got the pattern from here: http://www.rattycorner.com/ - instructions are under "Make & Do."

I have 5 rats, and they are all total princesses Smiley  There are pics on my website.

Awwww... Beatrice is gorgeous!!! Your hammock looks really good! I whipped one up from some scraps a couple of weeks ago and my boys loved it, but I had to throw it out coz they peed in it and would always smell of pee because they'd always hang out in there. They didn't chew it though... just use it as a toilet. Any suggestions???

That's awesome! My friend asked me to make an iguana hammock, and that would have been a lot better for Ed. Cute little creatures Smiley

Oh I can't see the pic!

And here I thought I was being original for picking the name Beatrice. Hmph.
