I am wanting to experiment in making my own things, at the end results I really want to make a huge cage for my babies (especially since I am wanting another one in the future). So I decided to make a smaller one like a travel size one for vacations and so on but I want to make sure that mesh fabric is ok or what would be the material I used to make a cover sort of speak to go over pvc pipe with a zipper? (sort of like the GLIDER- AURIMS that Shelly makes)

Owned by a son that is 15, a Maltese (Kasper), Chihuahua (Misty), MaLtchi (Kuddles and Puddles), Guinea Pig (Booboo, & Lala (WF 100% Platinum Het OOP: 12/03/2013) & Achoo (66% Cremeino Het OOP: 12/17/2013. Plus at my parents Precious the cat & a cockatiel (Nitro, who thinks he owns my shoulder).

I believe it's some kind of pet screen, but not sure of exact name or where to find it. Hopefully someone who knows will be on soon and can answer your question better. I tried to do a google search, but my computer is acting funny, and moving too slow atm.

It's later and I found this, not sure if it's right though, but sounds good.

You can purchase the black pet screen at Lowe's or Home Depot by the roll. It will be in the area where the window screen products are sold.

You need a fairly sturdy sewing machine to stitch the pet screen together.

I recommend using bias tape to cover the raw edges of the screen to protect your glider from the rough edges.
