I don’t know how, but my children have accumulated ridiculous amounts of stuffed animals and I was fed up with having said animals being strewn about everywhere. Growing up I had a stuffed animal chain with pins to hold the animals up, but I wanted something a little simpler, and something I could make…hence the hammock!
This hammock is a triangle, hung from the three corners. First, figure out how big you want your hammock to be by measuring from the corner of the room to where you want the hammock to extend to. You will need fabric, cord to hang the hammock by, and a sewing machine.
Cut your fabric to the desired size of your hammock. Then cut an inch or so off of each corner. (This is the fabric I used to make jammies for my hubby and boys for Christmas and it’s so fun having cute dinosaurs to look at underneath their animals :)
Now, take each side of your triangle and fold it over 1/4 inch. Then fold it over again to form the casing. Make sure the casing is wide enough for whatever cording you are going to use. Larger hammocks will need a thicker cord. Stitch along the casing as shown below leaving the ends open.
Thanks about.com for the inspiration!
