    Hammock Making

    I would love to have a simple hammock (no bug netting, gathered-end type) to lay on the diagonal easily. I just can't see investing in a sewing machine (lost in hurricaine Katrina) for just a reason.

    Anyone willing to help--will pay.

    Thanks!

    ktstone - I'll make you one, no charge. How tall are you and what's your weight. Feel free to respond by PM if you prefer.

    That is SUPER NICE of you! I am in your debt! WOW! Sent you a PM.

    My WBBB is really nice but this winter hangin will be much better without a "sky purana" net.

    Thanks Million!!!!

    Thanks again! Time to DIY an under quilt.

    Hey Christian,
    Look in the Other Vendors section. I just ordered 12 yards of Ripstop Camo from Backwoods Day Dreamer (BWDD) for $3.00/yd. Plan on making a couple of Breathable UQ covers that will double as a double layer for the HH Expl and Expd we have.
