Cover for travel cage

There have unfortunately been a few vet trips in the last year. To get puddings or toyboys to the vet I use the small cage. It fits into a plastic box that I carry instead of the cage as I am paranoid the bottom will fall off. I have always been concerned about them catching a chill or a draught when taking them to & from the car. Once in the vet’s it takes ages for me to peel off all the layers to reveal the cage underneath.
Anyway, I decided to make a close fitting cover for the travel cage to help shield its occupant from the elements.
I used a pink & green towel that I never liked & had been sitting in the back of the cupboard for awhile. To add a bit of stiffness, I covered the green strips with a matching material that was black, white & pink with, appropriately, birds on! After a little effort & trying to work out how to incorporate the cage handle, I came up with the following:
New custom cage cover
Opening front of cover
Top of cover showing cage handle
I am hoping I will never have to use it….. or if I do, it will not be for a long time….
