Found some ripstop at Walmart yesterday for $1.50 a yard in a dark green. I bought 4.5 yards and sewed up my first DIY Hammock! Mine came out a little narrower at about 52 inches, which has me a bit worried because my Amazonas Traveler is 54 wide. Finished length is about 11' and I'm hoping that the length makes up for the lack of width. I triple stitched the end channels to thread a Soft Shackle through it for the suspension (a la Grand Trunk Nano and suspension). Haven't really had time to try it, I'll take it to work and if it stops raining on my break I'll string it up between the ladder racks on two trucks.
Thanks for the instructions! nice and simple first build!
