those seams look like they're running the wrong direction, forces in a bridge run side to side, those seams are strong end to end, much weaker side to side.
I wanted to reduce the depth of the prototype bridge hammock, so I took out four inches by making a two inch fold in the bottom of the hammock. I stiched two rows of stiching to hold it. It looks fine with some testing and use of the hammock. The fabric if the 3 oz/yd out of the $1 bin.
