Ok so I feel bad about my last DIY hammock post...

1. Shoo!! go to the dollar store and buy lots of washcloths

2. Turn in each corner and sew it down, leaving a large enough tunnel for zipties, shower curtain rings or yarn, what ever you hang your hammocks with


This is a single hammock! TADA!

Too easy? Ok make it a double!

1. Take another washcloth and sew it like this:

at each corner

looks like this when done:


or this :)

Haha, Double Trouble! My girls love the canopy type hammocks, but I don't have one where thye get to use both layers! Except when Belgie crawls between layers, and Sevilla sits on top, then they kind of make their own...

Ratrover, that was really nasty and uncalled for. Glindella is doing the forum a FAVOR by showing how to make good cheap hammocks. Your 'jokes' aren't very funny.

i passed your design onto a friend who is off work due to major heart problems and needs something to do to keep his fingers busy. he taught himself to sew, and now he loves making the hammocks, and his ratties love them too!!

That's a really neat idea. I'll have to try making one. I'm not sure mine will use it thought--I bought one for them once, and they didn't seem to like it; for an inexpensive as this is, it doesn't hurt to try it out.

LOVE the two-layer hammock...I'm going to have to try it, will let you know how that goes (I'm not very domestically inclined, but it looks like even I could do it). Wonderful idea. Of course, I'll be making mine out of pure Egyptian cotton, only 600+ thread count...lol, j/k, washcloths will do just fine for my babies. :wink:

yea seriously, I spent 6 bucks on a hammock at Petco and it's not even near as cool as these, great idea!
