I made a set last night, I used bais tape and i love them!!!!
OK I can't take all the credit my wife helped me
Great design! i will be making some asap
Just made some using regular mosquito netting instead of no-seeum. (That was all my local Hancock fabric had.)
Worked out great. I modified the dimensions so I could get my hammock and attached uq into the tubes without having to store my uq separately. The mesh works great since it lets the air out when packing.
I didn't use any ribbon on the seams (I do have some grosgain) since the stitching seems plenty strong enough. We have a two-nighter this week-end...I'm excited to see how they perform on the trail.
Thanks for the pattern! Cost me about $3 and 1 hour of sewing.
My first DIY sewing project!
This may be in this thread somewhere but I have never sewn before and am wondering how hard is it to sew noseeum?
GREAT idea! I will have to try this out.
I love the idea for these. After my recent foray into the world of DIY, I think I may be able to pull a set of these off. I'm definitely going to try it out when I get my next order of no see um.
A quick question for fellow Sydney-siders, does any one know where to I can buy noseeum by the metre? Alternatively, anyone overseas know of a place that will ship noseeum to Australia?
I made two sets of these Saturday and they turned out great. One thing I learned, turn them right side out starting with the small end. I didn't do this and thought I had sewn the pocket wrong, ripped the seams, and resewed it the other way just to find out I did sew it right.
When I turned it rightside out from the big end, the pocket didn't get turned right side out and that messed me up. Starting from the small end makes sure this won't happen.
Here is my buddy (the guy who got me off the ground) putting on the set I made for him.
