Robin's Hammocks & Beds
« on: October 02, 2010, 09:44:43 PM »
:wave2:

I have some extra fabrics I have had sitting around for ages. They are from other projects I have done around the house and for family. I would never use them myself :yelcutelaugh: so I decided to see if any of you would like some hammocks made out of them. It will be updated as I have more sitting around I just need to get into.

The sales from these will also help my vet fund, that is all it will be going towards as it seems my rats lately have been deciding to get sick! or seem like it at the time, haha.

Right now I am just going to post some of the fabrics I have up. I am busy this coming week and if no one snatches them for any custom hammocks I will start making some pre-made stuff out of them and listing them for sale on this page.


I am willing to make all the basic hammocks...
-Flat $3.00-$4.00
-Bunk $5.00-$8.00
-Triple Bunk $8.00-$10.00
-Tube (w/ hole OR w/out hole) $5.00-$8.00
-Cube $6.00-$10.00 (rabbit/ferret/guinea pig size - $12.00)
-Cuddle Sack $5.00-$7.00
-"Double Decker" (I make mine a bit different, but same thing) $5.00-$8.00
-Rattie Blanket (a large square blanket to put in igloos or hide aways, to cuddle with) $3.00

Price varies on size. I do Small Medium or Large. I normally do a Small or Medium for people, it holds a nice rattie pile. (My small is about a normal Medium when I looked around)

PM and or post with what fabric and what you would like made. I will then quote you on how much it will be with shipping. Sets are normally a bit cheaper, (3+ items).

Fabrics as of now - limited amounts

Littlest Pets Shop


Light Pink - This would be a great fun fabric to use back to back, for a normal hammock, it has some give, so it would be extremely comfy!


Whales

The whales is actually the one I have the most of. I have over a yard of the whales. Possibly close to 2 yards.

possum4 - Here is your Littlest Pet Shop hammocks. Double Decker & a smaller flat (the red showed up very vibrant on the photo, it actually is a little darker then that and fit nicely with the coloring)

Hope your daughter enjoys them for her ratties!

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Also... Here is another fabric I rounded up...

Light Green w/ white speckling - this is a pretty thick and heavy fabric.


Also the Littlest Pet Shop fabric I can get 1 small hammock out of what is left. (then a patchwork if I get another fabric to match it)


Another thing I forgot to add is on request hammock can come with grommets other then that they will come with ribbon.

(picture above)

Halloween Flat - 12"X15" - $6.00 Shipped - Ribbon Hanging

Just to let everyone know...

all hammocks now will have grommets. Cubes and such that need "ribbon" hanging, fleece will be used. the ribbon I was using before, is no good. after a few washes it unravels and pulls out (at least my own personal hammocks have) no matter how "deep" i sew the ribbon in. Sorry for any problems.

If you still would like an order with all ribbon hangings, let me know and I will do it in fleece.

OzzpupRocks - Your order is done and I will be shipping it out tomorrow morning (Saturday morning). Also grommets will be put in before ship out!
1 cube, 1 tube w/ hole, 1 bunk bed & I had an awkward little piece of the whale fabric left, so I went ahead and made a small flat out of it, it is 8.5"x10" I believe. I threw that in for you. Along with the scraps.. I made 2 treat pouches that they can have fun with! In the package I will let you know which one has what in it, just so you know what your giving them :yelcutelaugh:





Also, remember everyone, I have a web page now (www.robinshammocks.webs.com) and there are more pre-mades on there, along with a few other fabrics I haven't posted here. New prices on there too!

also there is 1 full yrd of whale fabric left, so plenty if anyone else wants a set made out of it!

It came out AWESOME!!!  :hyper:
Cant wait to put it in. And thanks for the extras. My babies will certainly appreciate it. Especially my old man Gideon. He  :heart: flat hammocks. Usually I make them but im sure you do a much better job since I have to do it by hand and I cant sew for my life so they come apart after the second wash  ::)
Thanks again!

The Birds House
« Reply #20 on: November 05, 2010, 01:02:20 AM »
[size=0]So I thought I would give this a go... I have had a parrot for 16+ years and she is now 23years old, Quaker parrot, her name is Ellie. She has always loved hiding in areas to sleep, standing. So I started making her "tents" that hang off of a perch, but sit on the ground. After doing this some friends saw and I started making them for their parakeets and my grandmother started asking for them also when she got her first parrot a little over 3 months ago. My grandma said "you should really try seeing if others want these" So I am here, trying to see! :yelcutelaugh:[/size]

They are pretty much your normal "bird bed" you see at a pet store... just might be a bit cheaper! and they come in different sizes!

Here is the recent one a friend bought for her 3 parakeets


Extra Small - $2.50 - good for 1 parakeet, love birds, finches...etc...
[size=0]6" long - 4" floor - 4" top to floor[/size]

Small - $3.00 - good for many parakeets, conure parrot, other small parrots...etc...
[size=0]9" Long - 5" floor - top of triangle to floor 5"[/size]

Medium - $3.50 - good for quaker parrots, medium size parrots, "packs" of birds...
[size=0]11" long - 6" floor - 7" top to floor[/size]

Large - Custom made - your measurements then I will send you a price - good way to measure is how long is your bird from head to tail?...etc...

Order 3 or more beds at 1 time and get 10% off

Shipping is a flat $3.00 in the USA

I will make any of these to your request. For example my grandmother likes hers with a back - the bird likes to feel more secure. My friend orders her smalls a bit shorter, instead of 9" she does 6" but with all the other measurements the same. Etc...

If you would like it out of a certain material also (fuzzy, thick, certain pattern) I can also do that! Just let me know which one and I will check around my stores. (if it is a lot more for the certain fabric I might ask for a bit more.

The fabric list can be seen here - FABRICS - this is my small animal hammocks site, so please, if you are buying a bird house order through here, not the website. A really nice fabric on there, that I have enough left of is the light green marbled - I use this for my quaker because she is a chewer and it is very heavy and a very nice fabric...

I don't see any reason why these couldn't be used for rats & other critters as well. If so, you might want to notate which sizes would work best for rats, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc...

True true, I was thinking about that but was going to leave it to the people who can make the fancy triangle "cube" like ones, haha. These one's wouldn't be any good hanging in the air, the bottoms aren't sturdy - but I think they would work great just sitting in the cage, so I will have to work on one tomorrow with some secure ribbons maybe on one of the sides so people who want to attach it to the cage can, so they don't get drug around.

I'll post with one soon - But size wise...

Extra Small - mice/1 rat/baby rats
Small - great for rats
Medium - great for many rats/guinea pig/1 ferret
Large - great for ferrets/a few guinea pigs/lots of rats

I wish I would try things/think about them before I make a first post :yelcutelaugh:

I didn't think I would have so many people interested in these. I got a lot of pm's and emails on my website for orders! That I now made it part of my website, because they are all for mice or rats! I didn't think they would be such a big hit for those! :yelcutelaugh:

So if you would like to order any of these "bird" houses please go to Robin's Hammocks and put in an order, or you are still more then welcome to order through here!

For the critters I am offering the ribbons to be sewn on the side - so they are easily sat on the floor/shelf of the cage and attached to the side of the cage, or with out ribbons at all so you can just sit it in the cage!

Amber - here is your order! They actually didn't take me as long as I thought so I am going to be able to get them to the post office tonight. So hopefully they go out tonight or early Monday morning. Also - thanks so much for being the first that I was able to make them for critters!

Here is your 2 extra small houses for your mice!




Also - if you order a "Bird" House for one of your critters (mice,rats,Gpigs, ferrets) I will do side ribbons to be able to hook onto the side of the cage (or no ribbons). Here is what they look like
