Custom Owl Hammock - Essentially Finished

 Yes, the hammock still needs grommets for hanging.  But, it's pretty much done.
 Here's the back side.  A tad wrinkly but still snazzy.
And, here you can see the front and the back.

This hammock really challenged me.  Retrospectively, it's a fairly simple hammock, but the calculations were intense to make sure that the fussy cat owl would fit, and then, the narrow striped side also had careful calculations that I tried to muck up.  I struggled with the materials, too.

But, in the end, I'm quite proud of the hammock.  And, making the simple bar side (fussy cut owl side) is so very easy for me now.

This darling hammock will become a little hamster's new bed.

Sneak Peak - IN PROGRESS - Custom Hammock with fussy cut Owl Print

Here's another custom hammock in progress photo.

Not my best photographic technique.  Sigh.

This is the front and is fairly classic and easy to do.  The fun part was carefully cutting the owl , so that he would fit properly.  I had to resize everything when I realized that the owl was taller than my original size for the stripes, but a little bit of math, and tadaa.

The back side is going to be spectacular if all goes as expected.
