Hedgehog and Small Animals Tutorials - Sewing and more!

To keep things organized, here are some of the tutorials available for making cool things for your hedgehog (or other small animal).  Please note that these tutorials are for you to make things for your own personal use, not to sell.
Summer Flannel Pita Pouch - perfect for hot weather and more airflow, also fits perfectly into your dome.
Fleece Pouch (8 x 10 rectangle) - perfect for sleeping in, snuggling, hiding, burrowing... you get the gist  :)
Quilted Fleece Top for Fleece Pouches - use up those fleece squares and make your pouches awesome!
Poggy's Special Inside-Out Pouch - a modification of the rectangular fleece pouches into a reversible holiday & non-holiday pouch
Fleece Pouch (10.5 x10.5 inches square) - perfect for converting into a carrying pouch!
Flat Bottomed Carrying Pouch (10.5 x 8 x 3 inches) - perfect for making into a flat bottom carrying pouch!
Carrying Pouch Straps - ties a cute bow stylishly around the side of your neck.  Why not cuddle with your hedgehog and look good too?
Tree Dome Cover - very general instructions for how to make a cosy for your Living World dome that looks like a short, fat tree.
Fleece Cage Liners - washable, reusable bedding for your little friend!
Start a Mealworm Colony - keep your store-bought mealworms fresh and tasty (aka FAT) by keeping them in dry oatmeal and giving them a carrot each week.  If you're lucky, your colony will become self-sustaining!
Hedgehog Dolls - just purchase the PDF from my shop and you're well on your way to two adorable new little friends.  The instructions are 14 pages and include 39 photos with step-by-step instructions.

Hedgie Hat - available as an instant PDF download from my shop.  The instruction are 11 pages and include photos and the template for the reversible hedgie hat.  The mushroom decoration templates are not included, but the instructions for how to make them are.

I cant remember how to use this site to email you :(
I'm sorry to hear Poggles is sick but I have a suggestion. My hedgehog LOVES baby food and it's soft so maybe that's worth a try with Poggles?
Hope he recovers soon x

Was wondering if you have and would be willing to share a basic tutorial for igloo covers? I would love to make one of my own and have been following your steps for the other DIY options. :) Thank you for all of your help and I hope you will be able to assist me with this too!
