Will the stashbusting ever end? Nope. The motivation to get through my stash this month has been helpful as we’re supposed to be moving this year. You know, any time now. But I digress.
The girls have a lot of “friends” – the stuffed animal type. And we’re quickly running out of space for them. Sadly, I cannot get rid of toys that are named.
Yes, every single one has a name, you’ll have to click through if you want to know each one.
All of these friends needed a place to sleep, and if a friend was misplaced it caused much distress for Lu so here we go, a toy hammock across her bed posts for easy access.
It’s pretty straightforward – two large t-shirts cut just below the arms, split open, stitched together. The nifty trick to to cut slits throughout your large piece of fabric to give it some more hammock-y stretch.
The trick to do the cuts was inspired by Between the Lines’ t-shirt grocery bag tutorial that was inspired by a bag a grapes she bought. I wonder who thought up making a hammock-type bag for grapes?
I hung up the toy hammock onto two binder rings, knotted the fabric and clipped them around the posts. It isn’t going anywhere, and certainly took Lu rocking her friends to sleep in their new “tent”, as she’s calling it. I might tack the ends down to the clips once we move and the hammock has a more permanent place in NiLu’s room.
