DIY Hammock For Your Backyard

Hammocks are great for the backyard. They provide you with a possibility to refresh yourself a bit outdoors. You may ask why to bother and make a hammock by yourself when there are so many of them available on the market. There are answers for that. Making your own hammock is cheaper, you can customize it to the size you need and that’s easy. There are two methods to make a hammock. One of them involves a sewing machine, while the other does not. No matter which method you choose, both types of hammocks require: a piece of fabric roughly 7+ feet long and at least 3 1/2 feet wide, cord, (rope or webbing). You’ll need about 2-3 feet for each side. You can buy scraps at REI for pretty cheap. We use tubular webbing or accessory cord. For instructions visit Outside Mom.
