This is a custom ferret bed for my boys! They love to cuddle, climb and curl up wherever they get the chance. Now that the weather is getting cooler, I needed a warmer-bed-solution for them. (Reason being - I like to keep them right next to an open window for fresh air for them...and us hahaha.) This is the perfect way to keep them even cozier and a fun, stylish way for them to poke and play around in their room.
It all started with a stuffed gorilla from the thrift store!
Step 1: The Gorilla
Materials - a big enough stuffed animal for your babies. A fabric liner if you want, some hooks to hang it. Sewing machine or hand sewing to put it all together!
My boys (Damien and Jigsaw, named after the Omen and Saw!), they used to have a store-bought monkey hammock and they REALLY killed it. So I cut the final straps off of the old monkey so that I could use them to secure their new gorilla.
First steps: Just wash the stuffed animal gently in your washing machine and when that is done, toss it in your dryer and put it on low heat or air dry/line dry for a long time.
Next, decide where you want the entrance point to be, cut it open and take out all the stuffing. Save it for another project!
