Then the suspension place will not be afraid of invasion of their own and neighborhood children. And adult can safely collapse into the hammock, if the back is already stiff from weeding and dragging buckets.
  • Hung the hammock for the garden a meter and a half above the ground. The distance between the posts is calculated as: blade length plus 30 cm on the deflection. If the support is already there (two trees with thick trunks at least 20 cm or bars to swing), then adjust the length of the hammock. You can bind it up so the trough was deeper, pull the canvas or weaken depending on the distance between supports.
  • For mounts, take a durable synthetic rope with a diameter of not less than 8-10 mm. Not too lazy to strengthen the fabric of grommets, if the design of the hammock they provide.

Prilojenie allowances when sewing is not necessary to hold with a hand, and the line goes much equal. Therefore, the iron seamstress is absolutely necessary.


Step by step instructions for sewing the hammockMark up on the wrong side of the material two rectangles 150x200 cm to cut out and fold them right sides together.

Stepping back from the edges and a half-two centimeters, with the two sides grind the short sides of the rectangles, and wrenched the item received is evident. The lower part of the workpiece will be considered a back, the upper – face. Smooth away allowances to one side. Prestratified slings on both long sides of the workpiece from above and below, departing from the edge of 5 cm On the edges of the back line shall extend along the entire length on the front side is 35 cm from the bridging seam. Now lower the canvas wrap on the top. Flying line not cut. Prepare four cut the straps 70 cm each. Prestratified them to the places of fasteners connecting the face and back. NIPs the edges of the holes for the beams. Stitch the long side of the hammock on the front side, stepping back from the edge by 30 cm Cut the batting into strips 25х125 cm, put them in these 30-inch pockets. Folded, skalyvaniem and attracive region, forming roliki along the long edges of the hammock. Next you need to protegat pockets in 3-4 places to secure the batting. The handle sawn in half. Stepping back from the edges of each beam at 2 cm, the film was washed down at a distance of 1 cm from one another. Choose a chisel grooves for the rope. Clean cloth saw cut and groove, cover the tree with acrylic paint. Departing 5 cm from the edge, attracive at the ends of the drawstring for hammock rails.

The netting of the hammockNow, few are familiar with the knitting of fishing nets with the help of needles and plates. Once this activity was a good source of income for illegal handicraftsmen-singles. See how you can use these tools to weave a hammock with his hands from a thick cord.

To weave a hammock is not so difficult

To work need:

Thick twine. Synthetic rope for fastenings. Plate-shabloni. Self-made big needle. Two wooden end strap. Drill. The needle at the same time is the cord coil. Our hammock width is approximately 1 m, length 2.5 m. Knit mesh width of typing with 20 to 30 stitches, depending on the thickness of the twine. The thicker, the larger loop will be, and the less they will need.

The netting of the hammock with your hands like weaving cloth: povezav the first row, turn the work inside out to yourself and are finished the second row. Then again turn face, are finished, the third row and so on. On the needle each time it pulls so many strings that it barely passed in the loop.

When the twine ends, it is nastavljaju. It is important to calculate the residual length so that the node was at the edge of the row, not the middle. Otherwise, the nodes will spoil the appearance of the grid, but still will crash into the side prolegshego on a hammock person.

Having weaved mesh, take the bars and drill them through holes according to the number of loops on the short sides of the hammock. The edges of the drilled wider holes under the bearing rope. Smuggles in the order each loop of the first row in the corresponding hole. Take the rope, prepared for fasteners, to extend the end through the loop and fold in half. Measured in place, how long must be a rope and then cut off.

We repeat this operation with each loop. In the same way attach the second strap to the other end of the grid. Now collect the free ends of the ropes together, put them in a ring, wrapped with twine crosswise and tighten securely. Repeat the same with the other side of the hammock. Formed annular hole, the noise-holder or folded in half rope for hanging the hammock on the hooks.

Around the perimeter of the hammock, through the extreme loop, predeliver a thick rope, which will hold the shape of the bed. You can do without straps with holes. Threaded in the outermost loop sturdy round bars, and to the corners of the hammock to tie the rope on which it will hang. Wicker hammock you can take with you into the woods, the cottage, on the boat — rest and relaxation you will be provided.
