I just order zippers for a DIY zippered bugnet. Did a forum search and didn't find the info I was looking for.
Anyone have tips for measuring the bugnet to fit my DIY hammock? I want to avoid tons of loose netting.
Also tips for sewing on the zipper? I was thinking about sewing the zipper to the hammock, sewing the netting to the zipper. Then turn the hammock inside out and sewing down the unzippered side while leaving an opening at one end to the hammock so I could pull the hammock right side out and then hand sew the rest of the seam.
I'm completely new to the whole zipper sewn to hammock thing so any tips would be greatly appreciated. Up till now, all my bug nets have been the tube style using salvaged 3ft zippers from an old tent to create a verticle opening on the one side of the bug net.
