From the moment my daughter saw this in a magazine months ago, she has been begging me to make one for her. Â 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. Â 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. Â But, basically, I took a 1.5 yard rectangle of cotton canvas and cut it on the diagonal, to form two right triangles. Â Flip one of the triangles over so that the longest of the 90 degree angle sides are together. Â Then, I sewed these up on the longest edge (that is not the hypotenuse). Â That gave me one large isosceles triangle. Â Then I sewed the two bottom tips together and put on a circle bottom. Â I finished the edges with a nice trim and sew on a nice strong webbing for a loop to hang it from and voila. Â Personal hugglepods at a fraction of the cost. Â 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.
