Materials: a length of soft fabric, two sticks of dowling, yarn or rope to hang hammock. (I think a thin, gauzy summer curtain fabric would drape beautifully). Cost: about $4.00.
The fabric is folded over and stitched at each end and the dowling is threaded through. Be sure to make your fabric fairly gathered so the dolls have a place in the middle to "sag" (if they lay too flat, they'll just fall off, upsetting your already highly irritable toddler. Ouch.)

I made this hammock with a view to taking it- and dolly- outside for some nurturing in the sunshine, and for camping trips. I imagined that the hammock would be simple to string between the bushes, fence posts, etc., but indoors I was a bit stumped. Then I bought little clear adhesive hooks.
I fastened them inside the interior of the play kitchen I built recently. Works wonders. Now Little V can cook, clean and mind the kiddies too.
