Sugar Glider Projects – Bridges
Bridges give sugar gliders a platform to walk, sleep and play on. The photo to the left is my second bridge that I made. I did not follow any instructions and used the techniques that I learned making sleeping pouches. Basically, a bridge is a one sided sleeping pouch with clasps sewn in each of the four corners. The fringe was added by placing the purple fleece between the two musical fleece layers so that the inner edge of the purple fleece lined up with outer edges of the musical fleece. When the bridge is turned right side out, the purple fleece sticks out as seen in the photo. Then it was just a matter of cutting the purple fleece into strips. The length of the bridge was measured so that it matched the width of the cage where it is hanging, in my case that is 18 inches.
BI was not pleased with the first bridge that I made, not seen here. This one came out much better due to the purchase of a self healing cutting board and cutting wheel. The quality of the finished product is the result of my being able to cut the fleece straighter with the cutting board than I could with a pair of scissors.
