    Jennalyn, how clever!! Did you find patterns for that purpose or make up your own? Or find patterns and re-purpose them??

    What other hobbies. LOL Quilting has taken over. I used to make clothes, cloth dolls and soap. I do excercise and do martial arts.

    Jill, thank you! When I first started, I used picture tutorials on a site called "Rattributes" to figure out the basic construction of a flat hammock, tunnel, etc. Then I started connecting the dots and seeing how to make various different types from the same basic principles. Ferret hammocks are made in the same ways, just a bit larger, so I whipped up some for friends as a test run. They were actually the first things to prompt me to touch a sewing machine!

    I would love to see pics of your rats relaxing in their hammocks and playing with their toys. I had a pet rat when I was young-his name was Checkers. He was all white and I loved him to bits!

    Aww, I love white ratties! I'm adopting a pair of pale cream girls to join my colony next month, my first lighter-colored babies. I have four at the moment.

    The only pictures I have of my guys are in hammocks made by other people. :lol: But I make the same kinds! I just tend to gift or trade them.

    Paper crafts. I make cards, invitations, party paper (favors, place cards etc.). That's why I have the studio cutter. I bought it about 10 years ago before accucut got into quilting big time. Cutter was inexpensive back then, but I have hundreds and hundreds (and hundreds) of dies.

    I love to digitize embroidery designs. Some I start with clip art but I love to doodle and sketch, so some are of my own creation!
