How to make a Beardie hammock! (With pics)

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hi! I realized earlier today that, in all the excitment of buying a new enclosure, I forgot a hammock! (facepalm) :banghead: I hardly have any money left, so I decided to make my own. Here is how I did it:

First, I want to show you this pic, basking and asleep! :silent:

Ok, lets start.
So you need some fleece, sissors, a marker, needle and thread or sewing machine and some type of string or thin rope.

Next, trace out how big/small you want it. Then cut.

Now, lay you string or rope along the edge of the long side of the triangle, fold some of the fabric over it and sew.

Next, do the very tippy-top corner and sew.

Now, hang in your enclosure, add a beardie, and your done!

I learned 4 helpful words during this process. LET. SLEEPING. BEARDIES. LIE. :wink:
Ok, tell me how it turned out! :D :lol:

That's great. Thanks for sharing! As she gets bigger you'll probably want to use command hooks to hold the hammock in place as the tape may fail and send her falling.

You lost me at sew. A skill I wish I had acquired by now. I guess I can use silicone instead.
