DIY Sleeping Bag for your Ferret or Small Pet

For my ferret Mexy I’ve made some soft, cozy sleeping bags to have the best sleepingtime she can have and have many sweet dreams.

Today I’m showing how I’ve made them, so that you can made them too for your ferret or small pet. Or you could make it for a friend’s pet as a gift!
This DIY is also do-able if you’re a beginner. If you need any help, check here.
What you need:
  • Fluffy, soft knitting yarn
  • knitting needles fitting the size of your yarn
  • scissors
  • crochet-hook or large needle
How to make this yourself:
 (keep in mind the size of the sleepingbag you want to make and the space your pet needs in it)
(The right length: think of how long you want the sleeping bag to be
and double that, because in step 4 you will fold it)
If you liked this DIY, feel free so share it.
