How To Sew a Corner Stuffed Animal Hammock

Free Directions to Sew a Stuffed Animal Hammock

  • 1 3/4 - 2 yards of 60" wide fabric -- a fabric with some stretch works best. This is enough fabric for two hammocks.
  • Thread to match
  • Drapery or craft cord
  • 3 sturdy cup hooks (you may also need wall anchors)
  • Open the fabric to a single thickness.
  • Fold the fabric cut edge to meet the selvedge, creating a triangle.
  • Trim away the excess fabric.
  • Cut the fold of the triangle edge (this will be a bias edge).
  • Cut off of each corner so there is 2" across the corner.
  • Turn under each corner 1/4", turn under another 1/4" to enclose the raw edge.
  • Press and stitch the corners in place.
  • Repeat for all three corners.
  • Turn under and press 1/2" on each side.
  • Turn under another 1/2" to enclose the raw edges.
  • Press.
  • Insert the drapery or craft cord in the fold, leaving a few inches out at the corner.
  • Stitch the inside folded edge on each side (keeping the cording away from the stitching) stopping and leaving a 2 inches loop of cord at each corner.
  • When all the sides are sewn, knot the ends of the cord.
  • Knot again.
  • Trim excess cord.
  • Work the knot into the side seam by pulling from another corner.
  • Evenly distribute the cord to have an even amount of cord at each corner.
  • Knot the cord just past the ends of the fabric
  • Stitch through the fabric at the corners, sewing over the corner to lock it into place.
  • Place one hook at the corner of the wall and a hook out from the corner, the length of the sides of the hammock.
