This is another quick project which takes little time to make. All you need is roughly 200cm by 150cm wide of canvas or other strong material. And approximately 12mm diameter by 6 meter standard builders nylon rope, which wont rot. oh, and two trees between four and five meters apart.
Pin the shorter ends folding in the raw edge leaving 3cm-4cm between the fold and the stitching for your rope to be pushed through.
Sew the seam.
Repeat for the other side.
I seamed each side twice with straight stitch and once through the middle with zigzag, for added strength, as the little ones and friends like to swing FAST AND HIGH.
Thread the nylon rope through each side and gather the material in the middle.
Find two trees close enough together and tie around a strong branch or the trunk.
Get the biggest in the house to lie in it to test the hammocks height off the ground and adjust if necessary and to your preference.
Lie down again and reach for a good book, alternatively grab the nearest toddler for a test flight, or a sleep…maybe?
