You probably know those Cuddle Cups, I heard guinea pigs (etc.) love them!
They look like this:

But they don't sell them anywhere near here.  Cry
They shouldn't be too hard to make but I have no idea where to start! Has someone already made them and have a tutorial for this? Any tips for fabric?
You'd make me and my piggies very happy  Grin

Maybe this is in the wrong section of the forum?

I would use fleece, monster fur, fake fur, something soft and snuggly for the inside, and maybe you can find guinea pig fabric for the outside! As for making it, I'm not too sure. HTH some.

out of town until July 10th...I will respond to any messages then.

I've seen something similar that looks relatively easy to make. It was basically a flat circular pillow with a stuffed tube running around the edge. The sides wouldn't be as high as the kind you posted, but it still looked nice and cozy. Smiley Fleece would work well, but I'd avoid "furry" fabrics or terrycloth - smaller animals might manage to get their toes tangled in it.

Fleece would be a good idea indead, and thanks for the advice on the longer fur, that wouldn't have crossed my mind until they would get stuck in it!
I will just get some nice fleece and another facric for the outside and will let you know how it turned out, maybe with a tutorial so this tread will get useful for other cavy-owners  Cheesy

Why not get a cat bed pattern and just alter the dimensions?

I have seen tutorials and patterns around the NET - sorry no links handy.
