Thanks for the reply Jazilla! I couldn't wait to install the bugnet so I just dug in like I've done with the the rest of this hammock.
I ended up not hemming the edge on my bugnet and it worked out just fine including the raw bugnet edge in the grossgrain with the hemmed hammock edges.
Thanks to everyone for all the help in the form of both questions and replies in this and other threads! I love this hammock and look forward to many wilderness nights within it's walls....on to the DIY Superfly
For those wondering about what size to build...I'm 6'4" and 225 lbs. I followed the pattern for the 9ft hammock in this thread and it fits me perfectly.
