I know this thread is pretty old, but I'm about to start making this hammock this weekend and had a few questions.
For the seams where it says to reinforce with grosgrain, could I instead do a flat felled seam? More aesthetically pleasing in my eye. But if its there for structure I won't skip it.
Second, some people have asked if they can use 8" bug netting under the zipper for some more visibility. Has anyone tried this? Do I need the strength of the nylon here too?
That's all for now and thanks in advance if you have any advice,
