I finished my first DIY hammock tonight. I made the hammock using a 60"x126" Burgundy Crinkle Taffeta Tablecloth from Tableclothfactory.com
My thread injector is in need of some servicing, so I used the following video for the Gathered Ends of the Hammock
I plan to do a test hang in the park, before giving this hammock to my wife. I'll post some photos tomorrow weather permitting.
