11  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / piggy beds (big pics) on: July 02, 2007 05:39:40 PM
Hey everyone... I recently made some cozy beds for my guinea pigs:

This is a bed I made ages ago from an old t-shirt and my cutie pig poppy modelling it:

I made 4 of these pink cupcake fleece-lined sacks for winter.. they have wadding in between the two fabric layers for extra warmth. Here is sooty winking at the camera hamming it up:

And my beautiful senior piggie (she's almost 11 years old) coco:

My other pig minnie doesn't like her picture taken lol.

Hey that looks pretty cute!  The thing about the poofyness too could be because I used such a thin sheer fabric.  If you're using a thicker type of fabric you might not need so much fabric in the skirt to gather? Hopefully if you play around with it you'll find something that works! Feel free to PM me if you have anything you want to ask about it..

Hey if you're interested I made something pretty similar a while back and wrote up a tute...
Good luck with your dress!

Hey thanks for all the nice comments Smiley.  Well before I could decide on a name my boyfriend named her "Poppy" cos she has a cute habit of popcorning around like crazy lol (now I know he's attached to them!).  So Poppy has stuck, but I liked the name Ursa though.  I just finished making a ginormous C&C cage and now I'm trying to design some beds, sofas or tents for them to sleep in!  Thanks again everyone!

I recently bought two adorable piggies and went looking for fun things they could play with but found that there wasn't much for sale around here.  So, after making really ugly cheap looking tubes out of plastic milk bottles, I decided they needed to look a bit better for all of our sakes.

Pig in a tube!

Yay tunnel!

Minnie modelling the tunnel

If anyone could help me think of a name for this cutie little girl it would be much appreciated! At the moment I'm calling her bear because I think she looks like a teddy bear with her big ears and brown nosie but bear sounds so boyish Sad.  She has a really playful tomboy personality too so girly girl names sound a bit funny.

I had to cut the long tube in half because Minnie would walk halfway in and plop down and stop bear from getting through!

I cut circular strips of plastic from the milk bottle and fed them through channels I made in the fabric to keep the tunnels rounded.  I got the idea from the craftster clothing section, where people were using plastic bottles to make cheap corset boning.  Also because its plastic, it is washable, but I'm not sure if my sewing would hold up well in the washing machine.  This could be used for other small animals too like ferrets, it's so cheap, in my case free because I used scrap fabric!

Hey this is cute.  I made a dress similar a while ago and I posted it with a tute "My Babydoll Dress" if it helps.  I think it kindof similar except the sleeves would have to be made longer and add a tie for the back Smiley.

NOTE: I am re-posting this disclaimer at the top of this thread, but I DO NOT recommend anyone melting with the plastic lids like I did... I have done it twice, and both times have gotten a headache and felt dizzy.  I don't think it was a coincidence, I believe it was the fumes.  DON'T try that one at home, please.  Smiley

Eek! Shocked I definately recommend no-one uses random plastic to melt as the fumes of some can be toxic, if not fatal... Or can set on fire if heated.  Not trying to scare anyone or anything but be careful with what plastics you use, as there is really no way to predict how they act until you've used it, and by then it might be too late!
Whew.  Rant over lol.
I love everything posted however and there is obviously no issues with the pony beads used.  Hehe if only it wasn't sunday today there'd be some shops open to buy some beads!

Hey everyone! wow there seems to be renewed interest in my dress now its posted on the awesome tute thread... Smiley

How cute is that? You're so brilliant.

I do have 2 questions on your tute (thanks a million for providing it by the way), on step 3, it tells you to sew as follows, and seam the top and leave it open. I'm not sure what it's saying. First, if I sewed that, would be pieces be all stuck together, therefore can't separate to form a tube? And, I don't know what it means by the seaming the top and leaving it open. Sorry if my questions confuse you, they tend to do that sometimes.

Thanks again for your time in putting together the tutorial! It's really appreciated.

lol sorry about that I can see now when I re-read that how obscure it is... probably a better word would have been to hem the top... just fold the top raw edge into the inside and sew it down!

thank-you everyone for your kind comments Smiley

I love amy lee and definitely love this dress!! I found a bigger photo of her on the stairs and another side shot of the dress Smiley hope this helps!

Also I'm pretty sure her dress was specially made by alexander mcqueen.. here's a similar one from his collection which I really love!

I think the pics were shrunk a little by the post, so click on them to see them a bit better.
