What did you use for the stuffing? I just made one from that pattern a few days ago, and it looked GREAT when I finished it. Then I put it in my guinea pig cage, and one of them just walked right over the walls of the cup and squished it down, like it wasn't even there! Now it just looks like a hairy poopy wad of fabric lol. So apparently my choice of batting was bad. I know just about nothing about batting, I just got the cheap stuff. I'm about to make them a tunnel (pattern is also on that website) but I'm trying foam in it instead of batting this time.

I didn't have any batting, so for the edges i just put a layer of thick felt between the lining and the outer fabric. I also did the same for the base, but I also put some fiberfill stuffing for extra squishyness Smiley It sank down a bit when my rats got on it since they're pretty chubby, but that should help Smiley

That looks really well made - and the photos of the mtesting it are really professional-looking. My animals always flee when i get a camera out but yours are posing really nicely!
