I bought some fabric on Ebay intending it for a Hammock, but I think I may have gotten more than I bargained for in a good way. I wanted supplex, because I like the feel of it, and I figured it would make a very comfortable hammock. The fabric I received does appear to be supplex, but I think its gore-tex lined supplex. There is a layer of material bonded to the back, and it certainly feels like teflon. Its said in the description that it had a white backing, but I didn't read that 'til later.
If this is gore-tex, I think I got a heck of a deal at under 6 bucks a yard shipped, but I didn't intend for my hammock to be waterproof and I almost feel like this is a waste and should be saved for a coat or something. Of course I don't know how to go about sewing this to keep the seams waterproof. Are there special techniques?
Anyway, I'm new to this gear building thing, and I was hoping for some more experienced input. I'm certainly not above sticking this in the closet for a coat until I've got more experience. BTW, he's got lots more of the stuff if anyone wants me to post the link.
