I just received my 7 yards of 10mm Habotai silk today. I'm pretty new to the DIY stuff, so I'm looking for some suggestions. I'd like to make a DL hammock out of it.

Unfortunately, it is only 54" wide. It's all in one piece as well. In making a DL hammock, do I need to hem both ends or can I just fold it in half long ways and hem the two lose ends?

Any input would be much appreciated. I'm hoping to have this one done in time for this weekend at Turkeypen Gap.
