Magic Carpet Cat Hammock

Purr-fect way to re-use an old towel!

abb06af269992ae948577f70770e66d7.jpg

  • an old towel you can fold in half or into a third (like I did), make sure you use one that will look ok in your living room if you plan on hanging it in plain sight
  • some zpagetti yarn or other yarn that is strong enough to hold the whole thing (including your cat) up
  • crochet hook
  • a pair of scissors (a knife is optional)
  • a big comb for making the tassels, but you could just as easily use your hands
  • elastic bands for the tassels
  • coffee table you can hang the hammock from
  • if you can’t attach the hammock to something underneath the table, you will have to put 4 sufficiently strong hooks into the bottom of your table or into the sides of its legs

Check out this great project for a handy parent that wants to make a donation to their child’s classroom!

This is a neat QUIET activity for learning or playing. You only need to whisper into the mouth end to hear in the ear end. This way, many kids can practice reading lessons without disturbing each other.
