I know from experience what it's like to get a hammock in a Latin American country and never use it. I have one from Nicaragua that's in a closet until I find a place to hang it...whenever that is. That one is netted though, so it wouldn't work for what I did with the Honduran hammock, which I'll show you right now!
This is a no-sew project!
First, I cut the strings off the ends.
Grandma said she didn't care if I turned it into a throw. In fact, I think she suggested that I do it.
Each big loop looked like this:
I unravelled it, which gave me two medium loops.
I separated each medium loop into two smaller loops and tied knots in the smaller loops:
I did that along the whole hammock on both sides and ended up with a cute Honduran throw.
I hope you like the coffee table leg in the corner of this picture.
