The Island Breeze Hammock PDF Pattern will guide you through the process of creating a personalized hammock for your special doll. Included in this pattern are instructions for (1) The Hammock, (2) A Wooden Stand (pictured on the cover), and (3) A CPVC Stand (shown on the example image). So, whether you choose the CPVC or wooden option, you will come away with a project that brings island breezes your way! This pattern involves the use of tools and either matches or a lighter (to burn the ends of the cord) so adult supervision is required. If you want to make the wooden option but you don’t have tools to cut wood, many large home improvement stores will cut your wood to the desired lengths. Enjoy the process as you accomplish a masterpiece!
Note: This is a crafting/woodworking pattern. There is no sewing involved.

My husband and I joined forces on this one, he made the stand, I made the hammock. I didn't use rope, I had some really jazzy fabric and made fabric beds for the dolls. The project was easy to make for both of us, although my husband put L-brackets on the uprights for a bit more strength. Good project, and fun to do.
It looks great. Enjoyed making it. The instructions were easy to follow. I love making the furniture.
This is such a neat piece of furniture. The directions made it so easy to assemble. My granddaughter loved it.
It went together well, we did the cpvc one and the girls loved it. It was a big hit. Very nice!!
I am in the process of making the Island Breeze Hammock and it is so much fun to make. The instructions are very easy and it is a very solid piece so it will last a long time.
