I’m happy to publicly announce my website http://www.jenscustomcrafts.com
Thanks to Lynx for allowing me to advertise on her wonderful website!
Many of you might have seen pictures from me or other members with the Custom “Huts” that I make for the piggies. These are my specialty and the piggies love them! You can ask any of my 18! The huts are made with cotton fabric, lined with coordinating fleece and there is a layer of foam between the cotton and fleece to keep the huts free standing. They are machine washable and dryable and continue to hold their form.
Many of the pigs also love the large hanging cubes, these only work if you have a top on your c&c cage. I can make them with one or two entrances/ exits.
The Cubes are perfect if you also have rats or ferrets. I have several different sizes to choose from. Cubes are also made with cotton fabric and lined with coordinating fleece. There are grommets in place and pear hooks are included so the cubes are ready to hang.
There are many different sizes of hammocks including corner hammocks which some guinea pigs do enjoy laying on, but again these are mostly for rats and ferrets. I have sold many of these for guinea pigs that do love to lay in them. All hammocks also come with grommets in place and pear hooks for hanging.

Thanks for looking!
Neat! I love the huts and other goodies. You're very talented. :}
Thank you very much :)
The huts are very cute. I bet guinea pigs enjoy snuggling in them. Do you make any that are open at both ends?
I'll move this to the new sales forum, as we discussed. I know people will enjoy your products!

Thanks Lynx. I can definitely make them open on both ends, Feylin has one of them for her guys.
Lady Bug has two of these huts. One is the ladybug pattern shown above. She loves them!
Shhh, don't tell Weaver but one of the very small Cozy Pads fits just beautifully in the huts : )
We have special tortoise pattern huts with 2 doors. (We are not mature enough for 1 door huts!) They are such a favorite with the boys!
The cubes are also a big hit. The pigs climed right up in there and curled up. The only problem is that I ordered when Jenn was still mainly making rattie stuff. (We met through CL where she was advertising!) We had cubes that were made before Jenn was properly trained by her pigs. Their butts grew larger than the entrance. Poor Fred had to be extracted from a cube once.
I ended up donating the cubes to the ratties at the Humane Society and they love them too. :)
I have one of the rat cubes, and one of the huts for the ferrets. Inspector likes to cuddle inside while Doodles lies on top and squishes Inspector!
Haha about Fred's butt! That's right, I was blind to the ways of the pigs at that time, haha. I'm definitely trained now!
Very nice; I think my guinea pigs and cats will "need" one if they see it.
"there is a layer of foam between the cotton and fleece to keep the huts free standing"
I'm not sure what poly foam is but does it dry and/or crack over time with use and washing/drying like some foam products that I have used in the past? Or is it a new generation of foam?
"At Jens Custom Crafts shipping is always FREE anywhere in the United States."
Maybe I misread it but your order form says that it's free if the order is over $50: *Shipping is free if over $50.00. $8-$25 please enter $5.00, $25-$50 please enter $9.00.
Poly foam is used in packing materials and also used in boat seat cushions. I wash all of my items very often and i've never had any troubles with it. I haven't heard from anyone else that has purchased from me having any problems with it either.
I guess you found the one thing I forgot to change. No one has ever used my order form. Sorry about that. I originally did charge for shipping, but I don't anymore. You didn't misread anything, but when I said that shipping is Free I meant it. It was just something I forgot to change.
My girls have two of your huts and they love them! Only I wish I would have gotten them with two entrances/exits. My girls aren't mature enough for only one.
They wash & dry beautifully. I've washed them several times and they show no signs of wear & tear.
"My girls aren't mature enough for only one."
Do you think that magical day of maturity will ever arrive? ;-)
As long as my boys have 1 more hut than there are guinea pigs, we normally don't have any squabbles about them. Some even like to lay together in them! I must be lucky.
snowflakey- Simple answer- No. :)
Quinc will see that Emma is in one and apparently she wants the exact same one so she will run (I mean, backup and run towards the hut) and throw herself into the hut and all I'll hear is Emma squeal and run out. Then Quinc will lie down… Then it starts all over again
I'll have to post some pictures of them in their huts when I stop being so lazy and actually upload pictures onto my computer.
QE: That's the best thing I've read all day. I can just see your girls doing that too.
Quinc is my little trouble maker.
I really like the huts. How often do you update the fabric? I need to sit down and make a list of everthing that I have which colors and patterns, every time I see a picture of Weavers cages I think I want me to coordinate and look pretty.
Quic-Emma your pigs sound like mine. We call Kismet Princes Kismet, she is a like a little kid, she will be streched out sleeping then wake up and see Fozzie in a bed and she will run right into him and chase him out, this goes on all day. Once she bangs into him she will scream, as if saying mom he is hurting me make him get out. They are worse then 2 year old little kids. She wants whatever he has.
Bandi- Whatever the other pig is doing, or has.. is always better!
Bandi- I usually just get a few new ones here or there, or if there is a good sale I will stock up which I just did last month.
Another thing that I do is if someone has a specific fabric that they want I will special order it. I had a girl in Texas that wanted a texas themed cage set for her ferrets, so we found a really neat pattern online, ordered it and made her set out of that which turned out really nice. I just may have to add a few dollars depending on how much the special fabric is.
I also made a cage set for a fire(woman) out of fire truck themed fabric.
