I decided I was sick of my guinea pigs throwing all of their fluff outside of the cage, and that it would be cheaper in the long run if I just made some fleece covers for them that were washable. This is the first one (I want to make, like 7, so I only have to do laundry once a week).

I hand sewed the entire thing (my sewing machine doesn't like me).

Here is the loft one. It's a little bit smaller than I intended, so the next one I'm going to make larger on purpose.

The only issue I was worried about was if they start running around, the fleece would bunch up. So I put tabs on the corners, with clips on the sides of the cage so that I can switch them out still.

I took pictures as I went, so I can do a tutorial if you want. It was super simple, and would be really fast with a sewing machine.

C&C welcome!

What a brilliant idea, very ingenious and I intend to "borrow it" for a similar project Wink

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
