If stuffed animals are taking over your child’s room, create a simple hammock, which gets them off the floor in style. This hammock is moderately easy to make and requires little crafting or sewing experience. The finished product provides a convenient and affordable way to organize, store and display a stuffed toy collection. Sheets are available in a wide array of colors and patterns to match any decor, allowing the creation of a customizable and attractive storage solution for any child’s bedroom or play area.
Things You'll Need
1 flat sheet, any size
Coordinating color of sewing thread
Tape measure
Scissors
Straight pins
Drill
Marker
3 large cup hooks
Step 1
Cut the sheet into a square. Lay the sheet flat on the floor and measure the width. Mark the sheet lengthwise with a marker at the distance of the width measurement. Cut across the sheet from one side to the other at the marker.
Step 2
Fold the sheet from one corner to the other to form a triangle. Fold over each edge by 1 inch and place straight pins to hold the folds in place every 1/2 inch to an inch around the three sides. Place pins approximately a 1/2 inch from the outer edges and sew a straight stitch seam about 1/4 inch from outer edge on all three sides.
Step 3
Cut a 1-inch slit in each of the 3 corners diagonally from the center toward the corner, approximately 2 inches inward from the tip of the corner. Sew, using a zigzag stitch, around the edges of each slit, forming the equivalent of oversized button holes.
Step 4
Drill one hole in the corner of the room. Screw a hook into the drilled hole. Place the slit located on the top corner point of the triangular shaped hammock on the hook. Lift one of the other corners to the desired level and put a dot on the wall to indicate the location of the next hook.
Step 5
Drill a hole on that dot and place the second hook. Repeat this step with the final hook in the corner of the adjacent wall. Hang the remaining two slits of the hammock on the hooks.
