DIY Kids Hammock Chair

After all the baby swings I had been making I was told I had left out the big girl (stated by the big girl) and she wanted a hanging chair of her own.

Last week I threw out these vintage curtains to the vinnie's bin, they had been sitting in my stash forever and I felt I had moved past their style. This week I went back through the bags and pulled the strong material back out (oh! so naughty). 

Much to my delight they were the perfect size for making this hanging child's chair tutorial I found HERE over on A Beautiful Mess blog. The fabric choice made even more perfect by using the original hemming on the top and bottom without re-doing it. Any one that has sewn with me knows my hate for hemming so... winning!

The kid loves it. I love it and we are now lazily sitting around in the sun, reading and listening to Chet Faker, Kingswood and Milky Chance. Noiiiise.
