My ferrets like to curl up in their sleeping bags and I thought it would be cute to sew them some special sleeping bags. I drew an apple (approx. 30x35 cm.), used the drawing as a pattern and sewed this sleeping bag out of red, orange and green fleece fabric.

I'm not allowed to post pictures yet, so I have to link my flickr:

what a REALLY cute bag. i think that all the people that make stuff for their small animals are missing out on an untapped market. owners would pay TONS for money for stuff like that! small animal items are usually very utilitarian & boring. if i had a rat/guinea pig/ferret, i'd buy something like that in a snap!

thanks for the compliments, yes, hammocks and sleeping backs are either very "utilitarian" (I like that word ; )) or extremely expensive. So I got myself a sewing machine some time ago and started sewing toys and hammocks myself. They usually turn out to be much prettier than the stuff available in the pet stores or at ebay, anyway. Sometimes I believe the ferrets don't really appreciate it, though  Grin my ferret girl sometimes likes to hide behind the washer, curled up in a cleaning rag...

 Cheesy Awwwwww. That is so cute and adorable. I'm sure you could make other fruits into sleeping bags--I'd want a pear.  Wink But I don't have any ferrets. I always wanted to get one though. But my husband doesn't like the idea. Nor did he like the idea of a Sugar Glider either....

totally adorable and a great way to use those leftovers! Toby, Ruby, and Safire would love that sort of thing.
They currently have a homemade hammock that has lasted 4 years but needs patched, And a bed sheet. Great job!

not super active, but still crafting and post lots on facebook.
