This hammock is slightly bigger for more play space for larger sized climbing mammals - and includes a cozy hiding pouch!  

Easily mounted to a cage or enclosure roof, this hammock gives a space play and rest space high up, where climbing animals prefer to be.  

Like the layered hammock, this project uses soft and warm fleece as the inner layer and is supported by cotton fabric on the outside.

While this project can be modified to different sizes, make sure your width is a bit more than twice as long as the height to make sure your rectangle will fold nicely into a square once sewn together.  

1. Gather materials:

  • TBD 100% cotton fabric

  • TBD flannel or fleece

  • Fabric ribbon, ~1" wide

  • Thread


2. Cut materials to size:

  • Cut 2 large rectangles (41" x 19"), one of cotton, one of fleece/flannel

  • ​Cut 4 lengths of ribbon at 8" long each


​3. Set it up: 

  • Place both pieces of fabric right sides together.

  • Along the long edges, fold a piece of ribbon in half, with loop facing the middle and tails hanging out about 1/2".  Place these at 11" on center from each corner, in between the layers of fabric.  Pin in place.

  • Sew all the way around the outside of the rectangle, with about 1/2" seam allowance, leaving a 3"-4" hole on one edge to flip the project right side out.  Then sew along the open edge to close the hole.


4. Finish it:

  • With the fleece side facing up, fold the short sides of the project towards the center so that the outer edges meet at the middle, leaving the loops at the corners.  This should form a square.  Pin in place.

  • Sew all the way around the outer edges of the square, doubling back on the loops, leaving about 1/4" seam allowance.  Do not sew the middle flaps, this is the entrance to the pouch.
