Now about using an iron. Would it be advisable to have a cloth over the fabric to keep from scorching it?
"Do, or do not. There is no 'try'."
I know that a good setting will probably be on the lower end of the heat spectrum for Nylons. My iron has a setting for Nylon and for Polyester. I combined pinning and ironing on my most recent hammock, which worked pretty well.
I still have some crooked sections from where I lost focus, though.
Thanks for all the feed back. I am going to read the manual. I bought my wife a new sewing machine about a yr ago and it is still in the box. She knows a little about sewing so I plan to enlist her in my DIY projects.
Again- Thanks for the information.
LW the Thru-hiker stuff sacks were a good place for me to start.
My knife is so sharp it cut the sixth finger off my right hand! On the plus side, Inigo Montoya no longer hunts me.
With nylon I use tape instead of pins. If you lay down strips of 'magic' tape in the direction of the hem they will rip off in two pieces without damaging the stitches at all.
