    I used 1" grosgrain and I folded it in half and ironed it. This made it very easy to just sandwich the material with it, no hem needed.

    Never a good idea to wait and see if something happens. When it does, you'll probably be kicking yourself. In your back yard you have the safety of your house, but in the woods not so much.

    The problem is you're limiting your site selection. Finding trees at least 15 feet or more apart can sometimes be an issue. At those distances, your hammock suspension also has to be hung higher.
