DIY Recycled Small Pet Carrier Backpack

Komecake from Instructables shared her story and how she came up with this creative DIY project of making small pet carrier backpack from a recycled purse. Being a pet owner and lover, she likes to give her pets as much freedom as possible. She has been looking for a backpack pet carrier that she can strap on her back and go for a bike ride to bring her pets with her to the park. The problem is most pet carriers are for dogs or cats, so they have a large hole for the animal to poke their head out of. But if you have small pets, like pet rats, you want to have a smaller hole. You can use ANY purse or backpack in ANY SIZE that is sturdy enough to hold itself up. She simply used a recycled purse because she already had it at home.

Here are the things you will need:

  • A sturdy purse/backback
  • Chicken wire, galvanized wire, mesh wire (whatever is suitable for you pet)
  • Wire cutters
  • Materal
  • Scissors
  • Twisty ties
  • A drill to make the holes
  • Permanent marker
  • Yarn/ribbon/thread
  • Backpack straps (Skip if you are using a backpack)
