For tie-ing the hammock to the table, make 4 braids of yarn, each about 60cm long, with knots on the ends. Wrestle the braids through the stitches of the crocheted corners, on the opposite side of the tassels.Hang the hammock underneath your coffee table using square knots and you are done!

2. Beach Towel Swimsuit Cover Up

Cut a wide opening in the center of the beach towel ( 12″ hole for adult and 8-10″ hole for kids) and turn under the raw edges of the cut hole and hem on your sewing machine. Measure down (14″ for adult and 10″ for kids) from the cut hole and draw a line across the wrong side of the towel. Open up your double fold bias tape and press it open so that it no longer folds in half, but the raw edges are still folded under. Sew the bias tape to the towel along the line you drew as the casing for the ribbon and repeat for the other side of the towel. Cut the ribbon to 3 times the width of your towel, feed the ribbon in the beginning on one side and going through the other side of the towel so that the ribbon ends meet and pull up on the strings to give the towel its shape and that’s it.
