Default Changing to fleece

I want to change the bedding I have now to fleece. I do not sew so I'm wondering what I can use to make the bedding. Can i just put fleece right on top of a dog pee pad? What else would i need?

What makes fleece wick moisture is the absorbent material below the fleece. So while a pee pad may work to help the fleece wick, it is also possible that the hedgehog will burrow under the fleece.

If you have a way to clip it all down securely, then that might work. A photo of your current setup might help us see what choices you have.

(I use fleece and really like using it.)

If you don't sew, you can also try using the Heat N Bond hem tape. You basically "tape" the fabric together by heating it with an iron.

If you do this, then you can make fleece pads: two layers of fleece with either batting material or Zorb in between. I've not used the hem tape on fleece (since I sew), but it should work.
