Default No-sew hedgie pouch!

Hello Hedgehog Central Forum-ers! I wanted to share a crafting project with everyone. I tried to make it as simple as possible so that even those who claim to be “craft challenged” can make one! It’s a no-sew-hedgie sack pouch of sorts. Hope you guys will like it! And if you have any suggestions or if you made one but put your own twist on it, I’d love to see what you guys did! Thanks!

Finished product:


Can be made with or without the strips for burrowing]

Supplies:
2 18in. squares of fleece
Ribbon or fleece for the tie
6 1in. by 9in. scrap pieces of fleece
Something to mark the fleece with
Scisors
Measuring tape

Steps
1. Lay your two 18in. squares of fleece on top of each other. [I found that you can make your squares bigger or smaller depending on the size of your hedgehog. Also from here on it’s best to do the rest of the steps with the pieces on top of each other, that way you don’t have to do everything twice ]


2. Cut each into the same sized 18in. circle. [It’s easiest to just cut off the corners, I did so by putting tick marks on each side and cutting in a crescent moon like motion towards the tick marks. If yours doesn’t turn out perfectly round or even looks more diamond shaped that’s OK! Luckily this is a project where things don’t have to be EXACT! ]


3. With your writing utensil, make some tick marks around the edges of your circle. You will want to make them in sets of two so that by the end you have an even number of tick marks. Make sure to leave some room between the bottom of the tick marks and the edge of the fabric. [This is where you will be weaving your ribbon or strip of fleece through in order to make a draw string closure for the bag. You can make these as tall or as short as you’d like depending on the width of what you will be using for the “string.” They also don’t have to be perfectly spaced apart; you don’t want them to be TOO far apart though.]


4. Cut slits in the fleece where you put each of your tick marks. It’s easiest to fold the fleece over where the tick mark is and make a small cut. Also, it’s always easier to make a small cut bigger to fit your string through than make a cut that’s too big smaller.




5. Once all the slits are cut, take your ribbon or strip of fleece and weave it in and out of each stich.





6. Pull the string tight to make a little pouch and close the opening. You can leave it like this and put your prickly friend in to snuggle, sleep, or carry around the house etc. [MAKE SURE TO LEAVE AN OPENING SO THAT AIR CAN GET IN AND OUT!] Or you can add some more in the easy fun steps that follow!


7. Open up your pouch a bit.

8. Fold it inside out. You can see a general circular floor-ish area.




9. Along the circle draw about 6 slits [You can add more or less as desired.]


10. Cut the slips in what is NOW the TOP layer ONLY! [I found this was much easier if I pulled the two pieces apart a bit. Also if you turn the bag right side out again it should be a blank un-marked un-cut piece of fleece, that’s how you know you cut through only one layer rather than two…]



11. Now take your 1in. strips and cut a slit on one side of each.






12. To attach your strips to the slits, first weave a strip through a slit. Then, put the tail of the strip through the hole of the strip and pull tight.












13. Once the strips are attached, turn the bag right-side-out and WA-LA! You now have a hedgie pouch with burrowing strips! You can even use them as a hut for the cage or put them in the igloo!

Thanks guys! It really means a lot!! I've been meaning to make and post this for a while now!

I'm really having a lot of troubles with the pictures, can you two see the full picture at all? Or is it just parts of pictures? I think my computer may be cutting them off.

Oh no! Can you not see the ones from the first post? or the second post? cause the ones from the first post are all weird, the real instructions with full pictures is in one of my comments I made on the thread. Hopefully those aren't all funky too. I may just post this again and *crosses fingers* hopefully it works!

I LOVE IT!!! Brilliant! Such a great idea without having to sew & it's ADORABLE too!! Well done! Even though I can sew, I am going to have to make me some of these! I think they would really come in handy when you are trying to get a cranky, uncooperative hedgie out of the bag - just open it up! Ha! Love it!!
