From the moment my daughter saw this in a magazine months ago, she has been begging me to make one for her. So, this morning, since we have been working on types of triangles and degrees of angles, I thought we’d work it into todays lessons. I planned on making a tutorial for you all, but I messed up so many times, I’m not sure how they ended up looking like they did. But, basically, I took a 1.5 yard rectangle of cotton canvas and cut it on the diagonal, to form two right triangles. Flip one of the triangles over so that the longest of the 90 degree angle sides are together. Then, I sewed these up on the longest edge (that is not the hypotenuse). That gave me one large isosceles triangle. Then I sewed the two bottom tips together and put on a circle bottom. I finished the edges with a nice trim and sew on a nice strong webbing for a loop to hang it from and voila. Personal hugglepods at a fraction of the cost. I know this sounds totally confusing, but if you draw it out on a piece of paper, it might help visualizing it.
Happy kids played in their new hanging chairs all afternoon.
