Re: Question about flannel liner

I made liners for my 15 hedgies, they are flannel on the top, fleece on the bottom and have diaper felting in the middle for absorbancy. I do stitch about 1 in from the side seam, once the liner is complete and turned right side out , just to help keep it flat when washed.

Yeah, I was thinking down the middle horizontally and diagonally, but I wanted to check before I did so. That makes a lot of sense. Thanks!

Re: Question about flannel liner

I would say no on the quilting, hedgehogs have a problem with getting their toe nails caught in threads, even possible of loose threads wrapping around their legs and cutting off circulation. I'm assuming quilting means you'd run a stitch line across the liner which in the end would create squares, and also exposed thread seams. Billowy I don't think would be too much of a problem for them, they can be fast but they'd probably just plow through any billowy area. I'm not sure since most owners use Fleece, flannel I think is #2 on the list of materials that can be used.

The purpose is to give the hedgehog something other than a plastic tray to run on with their little feet. Absorbency I don't think is a major factor in liners, fleece doesn't really absorb fluids like other materials, more passes through it. Its more just something soft that they can run on.

Question about flannel liner

I don't own a hedgehog, but my friend does. I do some simple sewing, and she has commissioned me to make her flannel liners for the hedgehog cage. Here's my question:

I've looked on Etsy and online at different liners that people sell. They seem 'billowy'. I don't know anything about hedgehogs, but it seems like they would trip over it! My question is, would it be better if I quilted the liner a bit so that its a bit tighter? I'm not sure what the purpose of these liners are. To be absorbent?
