Default D.I.Y Snuggle Bags?

Hey,
I just bought fleece blankets for cheap at a store and thought i'd try my luck with making a snuggle bag. Can anybody recommend a good website to follow steps on how to make a snuggle bag? i know hedgehogworld.com used to have an article on how to make your own but i can't seem to find it any more with their new layout.

Help is very appreciated.

I don't know of a site but a very easy way if you are a beginner sewer is to cut out 4 squares of fabric. Stack them right side up, right side down, right side up, right side down. Then sew three sides. Grab the top one and push the rest of the bag through it to turn it. You will be left with almost a seamless inside that is identical to the outside (the unfinished side is the opening). Then the last step is finishing the opening. Easy way is to fold it over twice and sew down. There's other ways to do it but this is a good beginner way if you are just starting out

I make my own hedgie bags. I start with a rectangle of fleece, a little larger than you think you'll need. Fold over about 1/2" on one of the long ends, and sew along it. Then fold the rectangle in half and sew along two sides, leaving the hemmed part as an opening. Trim all the threads as close as you can, then turn it right side out. It's better to sew it with a sewing machine if you can, because the stitches are much smaller and firmer than most hand sewing, so less likely for hedgies to get stuck.

You can use a double layer of fleece if you need a warmer bag
