Hammock pattern. . .

Hi all. Well, we are still having a great time with our goos. I still can't believe how curious they are. And the personalities!
At any rate, we have added the top of our old hamster cage to the top of the tank we have them in, complete with a branch to climb (and chew) on. Last night I used some denim to make 2 hammocks for them. Immediately, Bullet was in it before I was even done hanging it.
I have read that a few of you make your own hammocks, I was just wondering if you had a rough pattern that you use. Sewing is not my forte', so the simpler the better.
Thanks!

i just cut a rectangle of denim from old jeans, like take a leg cut the length you want, then cut up the seam and cut in half. then i just took 4 key rings or curtain hooks, stuck one on each end and presto!

For mine, I actually just took a rectangle of fleece, put tree ornament hangers (those little wire things) through the corners and hung it up there. Haha, sometimes I have to be real creative around here.

Yup, same here! No sewing at ALL. I just cut out a big square, put a little hole in each corner, and hang it from those.

I'm so glad your Goos are enjoying their hammocks! It's so fun to see them sleep in there. Sometimes they curl up, and sometimes they sprawl out. So sweet!
