Dpending on where you live, you can get hairless pigs at rescues and shelters, just like lots of other guinea pigs. I know there are some hairless ones in a rescue in South Carolina right now, and there were some recently in Ontario.

More beds! And I started making piggie sleeping bags too.

I got some acrylic paint today. Here is my first pumpkin:

So if my local vegetable merchant wants to sell these, what do you think is a fair price? He sells pumpkins for $2.99.

53  Painting Pumpkins? in Halloween Decor and Parties by fairysari on: October 03, 2006 12:02:12 PM
I have pet guinea pigs, so I am at the corner veggie stand on my street fairly often buying stuff for them. Yesterday I noticed they finally had pumpkins there, so I went back today to get a few of them to decorate for halloween. The guy who runs the store is really friendly, and asked me if I would bring back some painted pumpkins. I think he wants to sell them. I have no idea what do do though - I need ideas! Could I use fabric paint? Or maybe acrylic? Should I shellac them or something when they are done? Any ideas are appreciated! The pumpkins I got are really unique looking, so here is a picture:

Wow and I thought I'd gotten a heard start on halloween. I am dressing up as Tinkerbell, and am making a Peter Pan costume for my boyfriend. I am using Simplicity 5363 for the Tinkerbell dress:
And Butterick B4574 for Peter Pan:
I am actually almost finished the Tinkerbell dress:

I just have to sew in one more strip of bias tape, and hem the sleeves because they were too long.
The Peter Pan will be in sort of matching colours:

And as you can see I got some trims from the dollar store, and some leaves as well but I'm not exactly sure what to do with them on the costumes. Any suggestions?

Oh, and a fairy would wear a petticoat for warmth.

55  Futurama Carved Pumpkin! in Halloween Decor and Parties by fairysari on: September 21, 2006 01:10:59 PM
Last year my boyfriend and I dressed up as Leela and Fry from Futurama. I knit an armband and made a giant eye out of a surgical mask, and painted it with glow-in-the-dark nail polish, and knit the armband, and BF wore the red jacket and carried a can of Slurm. I'll pos pics of those if I find them. BUT, I did want to share the matching pumpkin that I carved, to go with our Futurama themed halloween.

I just printed out some images I liked, transferred them onto the pumpkin with pin-pricks through the paper (which i taped onto the pumpkin), then used a knife, spoon, and the can-opener thingie on a swiss army knife to carve it out.

The pigs are skinny pigs, hairless guinea pigs. It's a genetic condition. And they say 'wheek' for the compliments  Smiley.

Hi Carissa!

I can't resist one more pigture of Tanuki in all his miniature hippo-like glory enjoying his cuddly bed:

Well, I made a little guinea pig jacket today. Here is Costanza modelling it:

And the view from above:

I figured since he's naked he might like some clothes, but while he didn't struggle much, he gave me the evil 'get me out of this' look, so I think he'd rather just be naked.

I've had a lot of free time on my hands lately so I've been crafting a lot for my pet guinea pigs lately.
Here are some matching cuddle bags and piggy pillows:

And matching piggy beds (like miniature dog or cat beds):

Those are all made from fabric I scored at thrift shops, except the corduroy, which was from the remnant bin. I'm trying to send them to a guinea pig rescue for the rescued piggies. There is a tutorial for making the beds here: http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/accessories/17507-how-make-cuddle-cup-requires-sewing.html.
It's not my tutorial, but it's how I learned to make them, although I do it slightly differently now.

Here is the pigs cage, that I built out of storage cubes and coroplast (corrugated plastic). It's about 28" by 56" and I have two pigs that live in it. There is a ramp, and a second level that I built, and they live on fleece instead of shavings:

And here is one more piggy bed (complete with piggy model):
