It was my daughters birthday at the weekend and boy does she have a soft spot for cuddly toys- in particular ‘Beanie Boo’s’. Her cuddly toy family just keeps on growing but the space in which to put them does not!
My mother had the idea to put a hammock in her room for all those cuddlies and I found some to buy online just for that purpose. However, they were all too big and after measuring up I realised they wouldn’t fit any corners of her room.
So…. the practical side to crochet came into play! Of course I could crochet her a simple net hammock made to measure…
It crocheted up really quickly…
and I hung it in place with clear plastic hooks which I got at our local DIY store…
I hung it in place late in the evening before her birthday so she woke up to see the hammock as a surprise, complete with a new Beanie Boo too- one happy daughter!
Now her Beanie Boos have a special place all of their own and her bed is a little easier to make!
So simple yet so effective- Happy Crocheting Everyone…
What a great idea. And a lovely surprise for your daughter. I can see why she loves these cuddlies, they’re very cute 🙂
What a brilliant idea! Looks great! I’ll have to remember tgis for when my daughter’s get a little bit older.
Thank you 🙂
Love this idea! Such a great way to store all those soft toys.
and so simple too! Thankyou 😊
The simple things are so often the best 😊
They look amazing in there, so much more special TV buying one. X
Thanks Sharon, I was pleased with how it turned out 😊
Great idea. Don’t they just love their cuddlies!
Oh yes! 🙂
Absolutely wonderfull! I have one little girl that’s a big fan of toys as well. Maybe I should make something like this one day. Although, yours matches perfect with the high bed, mine has a low bed. Should think about it some more. Where did you find the hammock pattern? Or was it your own design?
Thank you! It really is so simple. It was my own design but it is just a straight forward net pattern made of chains and slip stitches. Give it a go! 🙂 🙂
