I am dying to make on of these http://www.smallanimalchannel.com/ferrets/ferret-housing/sew-a-shoe-bed.aspx

Wasted a few hours tonight trying to make one, but I just can't get my head to understand the patternmaking of it. Could anyone give me a few hints on how step 4 to step 5 is done. And I don't understand if the newspaper from step 4 and 5 is in one piece or two, "shoe front" and "shoe back" are which pieces? The ones I came up with after my attempts didn't look much like those in picture 7.

I need this in my life! Help Sad

i've been eyeing up this pattern for a while now, but everytime I look at it i'm SO CONFUSED!! have you managed to work this out?

my ferrets need a cosy shoe for winter!   Cheesy

EDIT: right, we think we might have it.......

Picture 4: the tall bit is the tongue of the shoe.
Picture 5: is the tongue squished down to the height of the heel.

if you look closely at Pic. 5, there is a definite indent at the 'front' of the shoe (left hand side) where the tall bit has been squashed and sewn/stuck.

I hope that makes sense!! I'll attempt one soon and post it IF it works....otherwise i'll post my failure on here!!

i made this shoe bed i show you picture but my duaghter wrap it for christmas for her ferret gizmo the only thing i followed was the foam cutting
1) cut foam to oval size you want
2)cover foam with fleece(i just cut big square)
3)measure around your foam cut a long fleece piece(your making a tube)this should be cut on a fold and the fold becomes the top of your shoe
4)cut piece the best you can to look like the part for the shoe laces
(made it like a tube to just didn't close the front)
5)take your foam covered in a oversized fleece sqaure and place the shoe lace piece and your tube piece sew all layers together( i had to go slow to not over do it on my machine)now trim the big sqaure you just kept it to hold on to turn right side out lace shoe and play with it to get the right shoe shape i post a phot next week
have any question just ask hope this help the other instruction where for me to bounce around for me
