I started a post like this in the fabric section but it moved away from fabric so i decided to post it again here.
I am planning on ordering 3 yrds of no-see-um netting and 5 yards of probably number 8 coil zipper from quest. to complete what I am hoping will be similar to the explorer deluxe asym but be a double layer hammock with a zipper setup like the Mod 2 for the HH.
My question is should I sew the two layers of hammock together to make a net-less hammock first. Then add the netting and such after. I think this would be the only way i could do it unless i sewed the one long side of the net in the hem and the zippers into the hem as well then do the gathering at the ends and finish it off. The problem I see with this method would be gathering the ends while the netting is attached.
Any suggestions of plan to attach the netting and zipper. How would I finish the hem on the section left open for the CC foam pad?
