Lightbulb Handmade accessories

Hello all! This is my first post here and I wanted to share some of the things I've made for my hedgie, Spike, as well as his current set-up. I've had Spike since last Friday and he is amazing! He is quite possibly the cutest pet I've ever had, and I love his personality and the way that he licks his lips is the cutest thing I've seen in my entire life. He's a five-month old rescue from Craigslist. He was free and seems to be in really good health, but I'm taking him in for a check-up tomorrow.
Here's Spike enjoying one of the snuggle sacks I made for him:



His home is a 2x3 C&C and he seems to really like it. His temporary wheel (a comfort wheel) was out of the cage being washed. My CSW is coming tomorrow and I'm really excited!
Here are two of the other liners I've made for him:



And his hat:

His bed:

His dig box:


And finally, the two carriers I've made for him:





I'm using the day of the dead bag for when I take him to the vet tomorrow. I'm a Spanish teacher and couldn't resist purchasing that fabric

Thanks for looking and if you have any feedback or anything I can improve, I really appreciate it.

First off:

Thank you for rescuing that hedgehog! Craigslist and other sites are full of unwanted hedgehogs that get tossed around by people who don't do research or are fooled into thinking a hedgehog is like a dog or cat and end up getting rid of them.

I'd say you have a very spoiled hedgie! Lucky and lovely looking setups for your hedgehog!

I hope you continue to frequent our community and share countless photos of this cutie ^.^

Thanks! He is such a sweetheart, I don't know how someone could want to get rid of him! And it doesn't hurt that he is cute beyond all reason. Of course I'm not biased, though

Here's a couple other pics of him:

Welcome to HHC! It's so awesome that you rescued him, and it sounds like his setup is fit for a king

Thanks! I've learned so much from lurking on here over the past month or so! He sure thinks he's a king. It's been nice to have someone else to sew for, as I have run through my whole sewing to-do list this summer. Although cutting all that fleece out can really give you some serious hand cramps lol.

Thanks, Larry. I'm excited for the wheel I bought from you to get here tomorrow. It seems like it's taken forever, but that's just because I'm extremely impatient They had him running on a mesh wheel Poor guy.

Ohhh my, he is so freaking adorable! I can see why you're confused about why someone would want to give him up - but at least they did. Now he's yours and will be spoiled and have an obviously wonderful forever home.

I love the things you made for him! I wish I had more craft-sense. I'm craft-handicapped haha.

I hope to see more of you in the forums!

Thanks hanhan! I hope to be able to spend more time here! It's been so helpful and informative.
As far as the crafts, i have too much creativity, so I need multiple outlets. My grandma had taught me how to sew by my 5th birthday, and it's been down hill ever since
