This time I thought I’d share more on how to make some swings.
In my clinic, I mostly use my homemade platform and hammock swings.  Personally, I love the hammock swing after a long day and my toddler would love to nap in it.  I wish I were a bit more handy and could actually sew, I’d create a lot more.
Here are some ideas to guide you to make homemade swings:
1) Platform Swing –
If you’re into DIY, you could make this. Here are a few alternative ways others have made their platform swings.
2) A Hammock Swing
This one is so easy to make and requires no sewing or tools.
For mine I bought 4 yards of Lycra material from Fabrics Galore on Lavendar Hill in London.  I tied a knot on both ends through a ring and then attached it to my swing ropes. Here are some other more detailed guides.
I’d love this one!
3) Inner Tube Swing
I don’t have one but kids I previously treated loved playing bumper cars with these at my first job in California.
4)  Taco Swing
This is on my wish list along with a homemade bolster swing. It looks relatively easy to make if only I could sew.
Next blog post, I’ll share some of the swings easily available locally.
