    Loops for guying out Hammock

    I had posted earlier about getting motion sickness and someone (can't remember who right now) suggested that I use lines to guy out the Hammock. Well, there was no where to put grommets so I cut some straps off my Backpack and made loops to use instead.
    Here is what I did:

    I made loops of the straps

    Sorry about the camera, not the best,
    Then I measured 24 inches marked the hammock with a sharpy and sewed on the loops.

    Finished Product It was much easier to do than I thought it would be.

    I'm not much of a seamstress but this turned out pretty good. We'll see how well it holds in Oct.
