Just picked up 2 more yards of fleece, going to use it to make my 2nd cage wrap for the main habitat & one for the travel habitat. The main I'll just wrap like I have the first one, but I may see if I can make a no-sew cover for the travel with what I have. I have them in the wash now, after they dry they're going to get rolled up with the sheets I just stripped off our bed & sit with those for a few days or so.
Here is the links to what I got, but they're probably going to be copy & paste, because I don't know how to do clickables. Sorry, I can understand if you don't look, but if you're curious....
I'm very excited, I ordered a new wheel (Fast Track) that will be green/black for the main habitat, should come next week (I hope), and I'll put the existing orange one in the travel (I think will fit) until I can get another new one eventually (probably Raptor, because I like both companies). So the travel fabric will be mainly orange & pink with enough green & brown to match the pouch & braided vine I'll bring from their main habitat (for scent & familiarity).

I just took the photos of the new fleece, the flowered one is the travel (vacation) cage. I decided to do that one in the pink & orange because I was going to try to go with those colors for their original habitat, but ended purchasing woodsy items (hanging tree trunk, one of the first things I bought them, and then I ordered the "tree set from PP, because I thought it was cute", so just went with the woodsy theme instead with splashes of colors in their toys. They didn't have really anything when I got them, just the cage, wheel, 1 small pouch (torn), a sock, some food & water dishes, and a couple bird jingle balls.
I've been enjoying creating a fun & safe habitat for them, & now I get to do it again for their vacation cage with all new colors.
I'm thinking of cutting a piece long enough to cover the 2 sides and along across the top (cutting a slit for the handle), then having it wide enough to extend about 1 1/2" or so for fringes on the back side, then have the back section large enough to extend at top and sides about 1 1/2" or so for fringes than I will knot them together.
Does anyone have any better ideas for a no-sew cover? The cage isn't huge.
