If I can't get to my bananas in time they go soft on the part that's been resting on the counter. I've seen banana trees that hang you banana by the stems, but I wanted something that offered more support. Enter the banana hammock, a sling that holds your precious fruit and displays it for all to see.
Here's what you need to make your own:
- 1 sq. yard of fabric (I used muslin)
- needle + thread / sewing machine
- key rings
Ready to let your curved yellow fruit hang?
Step 1: Trace + cut
Since the muslin I was using was thin, and I have hefty bananas, I decided to double up the fabric to have additional support. Using a fabric marker I traced an elongated oval shape onto the muslin, then cut out the shape.
Knowing the ends of the oval were going to be cinched (bunched) to be the attachment points, the ends were truncated. Slits will be cut into the ends to form a connection point for the hammock line later.
