    Hey all, I just got off the phone with OWF and they are getting the first roll that they are donating ready for us to pick up today.

    Also to make things even simpler if you want to donate directly to me rather than going through the site you can go into paypal -send money- personal -check gift- and enter ahe.orders@gmail.com for the recipient. Please follow gargoyles instructions and enter a note with user name and that it is for Hammocks for Haiti and I will be able to easily keep it all separate. When you send money with paypal in the personal section as a gift paypal dose not charge the normal 3% fees and will keep that fee from being lost--more of your money goes to help out with getting these hammocks and supplies down to the kids.

    Doing the Gift Certificate though my site will work fine just note that the 3% fee is added to gift certificates (like a sales tax) at check out in paypal. I have tried to find a workaround in my site to get past that and have it run like a personal gift transaction but can't find a way to fix it.

    Thanks for clearing that up Paul, I know nothing about that end of paypal accounts, they just take money on my end.

    Thanks shug. I tried to do a unicycle fundraiser, not so good. I can't seem to get 'normal' folks to believe the kids need a uni.

    hammocks will have to do. thanks again.

    I just made two hammocks for my kids. The first one is an end channel one at 66"x48". It just holds my 3.5 year old boy, he is 46" tall and weighs 50 lbs. (yeah a big little fella). It tacos and the sides are still floppy. It works well enough for my 2.5 year old girl though. The second hammock I made is a gathered end hammock at 72"x38" and it performs much better! I whipped it with zip ties as shown on the just jeff website. It is the type that I will be making for the orphans. I hope my measurements and weights help potential sewers decide what they want to make.

    I bought 10yds. of ACU digital camo ripstop (I think it's 1.9) at walmart and I thought I was buying it 60" wide but it was mismarked and only 48" wide so if you find it double check the width before they cut it for you.

    One question I have is what would be the best suspension to put on? I can't imagine ring buckles or woopie slings being very intuitive, where as; an s-hook or just plenty of rope might be. Any thhoughts?

    Happy hammock making everyone!

    Paul, thanks for the photo.

    Beast, The orphanage has kids of all sizes. The size you listed will work fine for the smaller kids. We are getting some rope in soon and can use that for suspensions if you don't have any. If you do, then great.

    Most of the Haitians run a size smaller than us beefy americans, but they still come in different sizes. small, medium, large, and oh my god.

    Anything you give will be greatly appreciated.
