Happy Sunday-funday! Hope you all had good, well rested, weekend. For those of you who follow me on social media, know that I was supposed to share with you a gluten free nutella recipe on The Ruby Kitchen this week. Well I ran into a couple of problems and decided to work on a different recipe for next week. For now, I’ll share with you how I made this cat hammock. This is another super easy sewing project, that is great for beginners (being one myself). I recommend that you know how to use a sewing machine, but if you don’t have one, it is completely d0able by hand.
This hammock is part of an up-cycled dresser, made into a kitty condo. There will be a follow up post to show you how to make the kitty condo to put this lovely cat hammock in.
Start by cutting two pieces of fabric into a rectangle. You can make this however big you want the hammock to be. Mine was about 30in x 18 in. I also have 4 pieces of webbing cut into 10inch pieces.
Lay out the fabric so that the print is facing down. If you’re using two pieces of printed fabric, have the print facing each other (inside out).
Fold a pice of webbing in half.
Place in between the fabric with the loop between the two fabrics.
Leave a little of the ends of the webbing sticking out over the edge.
Pin in place. Repeat with all four corners.
Flip inside out
Finish sewing the hole by neatly folding the edges in.
Go back over the ends of the webbing with a zig zag stitch to further support the loops.
The loops will be placed on hooks, and your cat hammock will be ready for lounging. Stay tuned for part 2!
