    cosmonaut diy thread

    Starting some DIY projects this winter. Fabric arrives in two weeks. I like to keep all my forum DIY projects in once place.


    • 12’ single layer GE hammock based on Jellyfish's Nova Harmony pattern: moroccan blue 1.6 hyper D XL, black .9oz mesh bugnet. symmetrical.
    • 12’ half-door tarp: charcoal grey 1.1 silpoly. based on the Badlander on this forum.
    • ultralight wallet and zip pouches using up my scraps.

    Sounds like you are going to have a great winter! (Hyper d is an amazing fabric- good choice!). Question- what is the nova pattern?
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    Excited to watch your progress!

    @stevebo the Nova pattern referenced is (I think) the one @jellyfish created and did a video series on.

    as Salt mentioned: https://jellyfishreport.blogspot.com...e-hammock.html

    I'm completely ruining the mathematical harmony by making it 12' by 68" thanks to a reddit member, but Jellyfish's instruction is perfectly thorough for a first-timer.

    I've never experienced the material before, but it seems to be a great starting point for my weight.

    i’m rethinking my hammock, 1.6 hyperD might stretch too much for me. it seems 1.7 MTN xl would be a better fit. worst case I practice on the hyperD and test before sewing the bugnet on.

    1.7 MTN xl in the color I want is sold out unfortunately.

    Update: went with 1.8 Airwave. Fabric arrived today. I mistakenly ordered the wrong silpoly for my tarp. I may offer it for sale cheap on the for sale section (10 yards of 0.9 MEMBRANE silpoly)

    Here’s a photo in indoor light. The morocco blue seems very light/bright compared to photos, and not at all like my morocco blue underquilt. Should have the hammock finished by year end.
