There are few pleasures as simple and lovely as a swing in a hammock. Make your own out of a beach towel with these easy DIY hammock instructions.
You deserve a break today! Why not make your self a resting spot where you can visit nature and escape for some real R&R? Start with a towel or blanket and before you know it, you will be swinging into slumber with only the birdsongs as your background music.
Design Sponge brings us this easy-to-follow pattern and instructions for making a custom hammock. With just basic sewing skills, you can pull this together in an afternoon and just in time for a relaxing weekend!
Here are the materials you need to make your DIY Hammock:
- cotton beach towel/blanket or piece of fabric at least 40″ x 80″
- 1″ leather strapping (if your sewing machine cannot sew leather, nylon or canvas strapping would also work)
- mid- or heavyweight cotton muslin or canvas (at least 4″ x 40″)
- rope for hanging hammock (I used this)
- cotton twine
