Are you dreaming about real swings at home? Build a hammock chair! You can hang it on a special hook mounted in the ceiling, or on the crossbar. Here are some models that are easy to do with your own hands.
Wicker swing chair
You will need:
- flexible rod (400 rods, with a diameter of 10-20 mm);
- frame hoop;
- round pliers, knife;
- synthetic cord;
Tie 4 dense rods with a string impregnated with glue - this will be the basis of weaving. The length of the rod should correspond to the diameter of the seat. A thin rod begins to weave around the cross, threading it down, then up, then over, then under the cross. In difficult cases, help yourself with round pliers. Introduce new rods until the base is woven (about 80 cm in diameter). Fasten the edge with a string impregnated with glue.
Tie a synthetic cord to the base in six places around the perimeter. In front of the 3 short end, and in the back - long. Now you need to weave out the back and a small depression in the front. Strengthen the backrest with several thick rods. After completing the work, attach the braided part to the hoop with a string of glue, and then attach the slings for hanging.
Hammock hanging chair
You will need:
- thick fabric (1.5 x 2 meters);
- lining fabric (synthetic winterizer);
- nylon rope;
- slanting inlay;
- hoop zipper diameter
- scissors, measuring tape, machine
Put the hoop on the fabric, and cut out details of 25 cm larger than the diameter of the hoop. Cut out the same details from a synthetic winterizer - with it a hammock will be more comfortable. The back of the hammock will be zipped, so its details are cut along in half. The zipper is selected according to the diameter of the hoop, not the fabric details. Sew the hoop and then sew the circles. Cut out the holes for the cord. To do this, divide the circle by two perpendicular axes. The upper two holes are located 45 degrees above the horizontal axis, the lower - 30 degrees below. The width of each hole is 10 cm. Process their edges with an oblique piping so that the fabric does not crumble.
The hoop itself must be sheathed with padding polyester around the perimeter, and only then put a cover on it. Cut the nylon cord into 4 pieces: two 2.2 meters each, and two 2.4 meters each. Each piece folded in half and pass through the holes in the case, fastening the knot on the hoop. Collect all the carabiner strings at the top. After that, a hammock chair can be hung in a specially equipped place.
Macrame swing chair
You will need:
- 2 hoops: 30 cm, and 70 cm;
- nylon cord for weaving
For a start, tie each hoop with a cord. Braid the base with any macrame technique, such as a chess pattern. Tie a large hoop to a small one by adjusting the angle of the back with the length of the rope. The back is woven from the larger hoop, dropping to the seat. You can decorate the chair with decorative braid.
