2 treat pouches (i hate making those...)
a bunch of scrap 'firework' type toys

I'm sewing up a storm for christmas and orders and my donations. Unfortunately (I've already let Wee Companions know) I probably won't be able to mail theirs out until Christmas as funds are REALLY tight and I'm most likely not even going to be able to buy ANY presents this year... just trying to make some with what I have.

Okay, here are my fabric piles, pre-cut.  I haven't started sewing yet but I had better get cracking because I am going to be so busy in a few days.  Anyway, here's before and after cutting piles.

That's just my donation stuff... I saved a bunch for myself, but I didn't even cut all the fabric (because I ended up with uneven amounts of fleece and flannel and because I was running out of time!).

I love seeing these big piles of hammocks! I bet the rescues are even happier to see them!

I finished and sent out MRR's donations, but heres the picture.

There were also fleece scraps, fleece blankets, and treat pockets ^^
Part of Lwade's donation also went to MRR


I'll post pictures of lilspaz's donation tomorrow or the day after. Unfortunately, her donation (being shipped to canada and all) will probably make it after xmas.

I finally shipped my package out today.  Unfortunatlly I could not do as much as I would have liked.  I made 2 cubes, a tube, 5 barrels, and about 10 flat hammocks.  On top of that I bought a couple of treats from the rescues wish list.  Maybe I will donate again in a few months once I have more time and premades.  Everyones hammocks look really nice.  I am glad to be a part of such a great cause.

I have finally finished my donation!  It just took me days and days to sew.  And putting the stupid grommets in was very tedious, but it is finally done.


edited to add: you can see Rorschach and Ozy modeling the hammocks in the picture.  They thought they were getting lucky today but, unfortunately for them, they were wrong.

There are two flat hammocks, seven cubes (including one monster 30"x30" one), four tubes, and probably 15 pocket hammocks (ranging from HUGE to little).  I broke two needles on the cubes!  It was so sad, but fortunately my machine came with replacements.  I also threw in a bag of fleece scraps and a small 8x8 cube which I never sewed (I figured it would be too small; I am something of a sloppy seamstress and my cubes shrink by about an inch during the process) for blankets/nesting material/toys etc.

Yay!  I'm so glad to be done.

I'm pretty much done with my hammock for rescues, Tipsy Tails. I also have a donation going to someone in Canada, and someone around my area. I get money mid-next week to ship them all out at the same time, and since I still have to grommet them all (  :doh: ) that's good. Lol. I'll take pics then.

And that IS a monster cube. I made one like that for my cat, lol. It's great for out time or in the playpen, especially if hung up by those storage cube things. It's tons of fun.

I could have swore I posted these pics before... They're from my camera phone, so excuse the craptasticness.

Unfortunately, I can't ship them out, yet. Tipsy Tails has not ben online in a long time, nor have I gotten a response to my email. I need their address before I can ship... If anyone could help me out, that'd be great.

Pics are pre-wash/grommeting.

You should be able to call her too (on Petfinder site). Her computer has been out of commission for a while so she's in offline mode.

You rock! For some reason, I didn't even THINK to look on their petfinder.  :doh: I'll try to give them a call tomorrow afternoon and get this shipped off this week.
