Hi there! Just make sure you use really tight stitches so that their little toes don't get all caught up in the threads. Another thought, since you dont have a sewing machine... is take ordinary items like baby hats, oven mits and other items and hand stitch a fleece liner inside. Add some ribbons to hang them by and voila! A suggie bed. Or take a beannie baby and remove the beans, stuff him will shredded fleece add a fleece lining to create a pouch. I make tons of pouches and sell them on Ebay so I have learned to be creative. It won't take long and you will be in the store or doing laundry or something and you will look at an article of clothing or a purse or hat, etc and think to yourself.... "now this just might work as a glider pouch!" lol It gets addictive so be careful and have fun.
