Hammock Cover

If the sun is shining and I'm not at work and I'm not blogging, then this is where you'll find me.



This is probably on of the best purchases I have ever made.  I love to relax here, under the trees, with a good book, sometimes taking a little nap, with my little kitties safely sitting below.

But I've had this little piece of luxury for a few years and it's gotten a little grubby over time.

When I got 4 metres of this pretty floral cotton from Wholeport I figured it was time to get down to business and finally make the prettiest cover I could.

From Wholeport Quilting Cottons collection
The fabric is only 91 cm (36") wide so 4 metres was just enough.


I created the base first and then spent hours and hours putting the ruffles together and then sewing them on.

Luckily I had just enough fabric to make some ties instead of fiddling around with velcro.


And now I can relax in cute vintage style~


Even better...I can take it off and wash it whenever I want!

If you've checked out my new Instagram feed, you know that Katya likes it too!

I have a hammock too, it's a rope one and built for two. Next year I plan on doing some projects to make it a little more user friendly, what you've done is a great upgrade!
