Here's a short backstory (well as short as i can make it)

Back at the end of Jan. a ferret shelter here in NJ burned down, and 25 ferrets were lost, 3 were saved and the owners ok just fine. So on a ferret board i mod at we are putting on a raffle. and since they are getting the 3 ferrets that made it out back on monday i made a special set of bedding for them. i also made a bag full of toys for the ferrets, and i have plenty more planned!

Here is the playmat for the raffle, it also has a matching carry bag


here is the bedding for the shelter itself

slumber sphere

that's terrible about the fire and the lost animal Sad these are so good, that you could've even posted on the "Crafting for good, not evil"-side of the forum! such a good cause, even if there are only three lucky ferrets that get to enjoy these. look very pretty and nice. i'm hoping that they're easy to clean also, the round and puffy ones make me wonder..

thanks for the kind words. hopefully i will have so action shots. the story is just so heartbreaking. i needed to do something for them and the ferrets. I have an open order policy for them. they can ask for what ever they want whenever they want.

the slumber sphere has a zipper for the cover to come off. the round beds i usually throw them in a pillow case before they go in the washing machine and dryer

i always get the most intersting looks while at the laundry mat lol

most of those items are fleece and flannel combo.

i usually stick to a flannel/flannel, fleece/flannel. cotton/flannel, cotton/fleece combo for bedding. i have bedding to match the seasons, cotton for the summer, flannel/cotton or flannel/flannel for the fall and anything with fleece for the winter.

with having 6 ferrets (i was up to 8 at one point) i found it to be more cost effective to make my own bedding, let me know if you want help.
