Organize your child’s small toys with this nifty toy hammock. It works up quick and easy and makes for a great stashbuster pattern.
As you can see, I tied mine to the end of the Pack ‘n Play, but it’ll work just as well under a shelf, in a corner or anywhere else you like. It’s a great way to teach your child to keep his/her toys organized.
And in a simple multiple of two, you can crochet this to any length that you need.
