    WTB: Pink Hammock

    I am looking for a used pink hammock for my 7 year old. Nothing too fancy as I doubt she will use it for much more than hanging out during the day when car camping.

    Heywoodja!

    You're from my neck of the woods! Or lack of woods as it is out by us.

    For a simple hammock like that, I'm sure you could find someone to make you one. If you have a sewing machine there are directions here in the DIY setion for a gathered end hammock. I've not made one myself, but it doesn't look too difficult.

    If nothing ready made comes up, maybe I can help you make one if you get the materials. I'm setting up my vintage Singer in a new location in my house this weekend so I can get back to tarp and hopefully quilt making!

    Edit to add: Just FYI, I remember seeing Walmart had some pink digital camo sleeping bags. With a little work I'm sure one could be turned into an inexpensive, yet stylish underquilt for a 7 year old!

    I think Grand Trunk makes a pink hammock on the cheap - or at least used to.

    This might be what you are looking for. Not a bad deal either.

    I made a hot pink hammock for my girlfriend as you can see me rocking it in this quick video. You can make one for under $20 if you know how to sew. Here is the link to the fabric

    salmon pink supplex on ebay for ~$3.50/yd for a 7 year old girl I'd guess 3 yards would be plenty and give her room to "grow into" it. Prob have to cut some of the width off or it will swallow her up.

    I am going to the same thing and color for my grand daughter and another color(s) for my grand sons. If it doesn't work out I'll make two pink ones just for the materials and postage.
