cargo net

hey guys,
so my next project is going to be making Dreyfuss a cargo net with toys attached. I was looking online and they are very pricey for the larger ones! So I am going to spend some time and make it myself, but I do not know what kind or rope is safe to use for him. I was reading that cotton rope seems to be ok, but people are also saying poly rope is good but then other people are saying its not. hmmm... if anyone can tell me what is safe to use that would be fantastic. Its going to be my christmas gift to him.

thanks, Ashley

here is a photo I took of him tonight. my little man is growing up lol (and still playing with baby toys)

if you can find thick cotton rope, that would be best i use Jute rope for mine, but might be too small for a grey

Sisal rope is also quite good and you can buy it in big reels quite cheap on Ebay. There is someone on Ebay who sells home made stands, toys and cargo nets made from sisal. I will see if I can find a link for you.
