How to sew a guinea pig cuddle cup

Here is our video tutorial on how to sew a simple guinea pig cuddle cup bed with fleece, polyester pillow insert, and a straight stitch on your sewing machine. It only takes about 2 hours from drafting your own pattern to finish sewing. 

Fleece fabric is very warm and does not fray like most woven fabric, so it is perfect for pet sewing. It also keeps the surface dry and easy to wash. Hope you enjoy the video and don't forget to share and subscribe. 

The Process

The process is very simple, draw your own pattern according to the size you like. My 10" wide oval shape seems to get a little tight for my almost 1-year-old guinea pig. 12" might be a better size to try for a grown-up guinea pig. 

The top, long piece is 4 inches high and 2 inches in the front as an entrance. Sew the top and bottom pieces separately and then sew both pieces together. Stuff the polyester filling as you go, and finally sew together both top and bottom pieces. The seam will be hidden because of the puffiness of the bed.

If you make a bigger version, it will be good for a cat or even dog. Happy sewing!
