Then I sew the sides of the pocket together . That is sewing through 4 layers of webbing, but the seatbelt webbing is so flexible, I don't have any problems.
Sorry, wasn't clear. I was really asking if there was anything special about the arc cord channels. That is, with all of the weight on the arc cords and the transfer of load between the hammock body and the arc cords, is it enough to roll the fabric edge and sew it once, making a channel for the AS-78, or do you need to fold a bigger piece down from the edge (say 2 inches for a one inch channel) and then fold that in half again to create two fabric layers on the channel?
I'm sure that the seatbelt part will come up, though, unless I figure out something else for those spreaders.
Thanks again for all of the info!!
