Part of the fun of owning and caring for sugar gliders is providing them with toys and cage sets.  What is even more fun is making the toys and cage sets yourself.  Most of the things that I have made for my sugar gliders have been made out of fleece; sleeping and bonding pouches, bridges, vines, etc.  Before owning sugar gliders, I never learned how to sew.  Now I am sewing everything up to but not including bonding pouches.  My wife helps me with those projects.

My first fleece projects were done with pieces of fleece cut by hand with scissors.  Fleece is not a simple material to cut; stretching is a problem that can make straight edges curve to the side.  One trick that helped was pinning the fleece to wax paper before cutting.  The wax paper helped to hold the fleece in shape with some stretching though far less than without it.

I have added a self healing cutting board and cutting wheel to my tool set.  They make a world of difference.  You still have to be concerned about stretching though it is much easier to manage with the cutting board and ruler.  I strongly recommend investing in these sewing tools if you plan on making pouches and cage sets for sugar gliders.
