This project started because I was too cheap to buy Lanie's hammock.
And I wanted one that looked like the hammock we had when I was a kid. Kind of like this.
Except with white dingy-ball fringe around the edges.
So while I was visiting my sister, I told her about this and we decided to make one.
We spent the next couple of days drafting plans, calculating angles, cutting, grinding, sanding, designing and arguing. After multiple trips to the hardware store and a semi-successful attempt with copper pipe, we came up with this.
And we said, "Hmm, what else we can make?"
I've posted basic instructions so you can make your own building set. But you're on your own when it comes to making the add-on pieces, including the swing set accessories, nets and other sewn and crocheted pieces. I don't have instructions or patterns for those and I don't intend on making them at this time.
Note: Yes, I know these displays aren't to scale. I'm playing with dolls that can't scratch the top of their heads or pick a wedgie so I'm not overly concerned about scale!
