–       Rope

–       Cotton twine

Process:

  1. Cut the fabric into a rectangle (the ideal size would be 40”/80”).
  2. Fold 1” on the sides to create a hem. This will stop the fabric from fraying.
  3. Use the canvas to reinforce the top and bottom edges. Place them on the fabric, fold over and sew.
  4. Cut the strappings into 6-8” pieces and sew them on the top and the bottom to create loops.
  5. Put a 1’ long piece of rope through each loop and create a huge loop with all the loose ends.
  6. Wrap cotton twine around the final loop.
