So after reading through the forums here for a while I felt like I had enough knowledge (and money) to give making a hammock a try.
I headed out to the local fabric store and bought 3 1/3 yards of 1.9oz ripstop nylon. I am making this hammock pretty closely to the specifications headchange4u outlined in his stickied post My Take On DIY Hennessy Hammock. A Tutorial.
However I am thinking I may alter it a little to do a gathered end hammock, but I am not totally decided on that.
I am trying to photograph the whole process from start to finish. Here are the results from night 1. Basically we just roll hemmed the edges. Not really all that exciting, but hey, you got to start somewhere!
More pics to come. (That is my wife lending me a hand with the sewing. This is my first experience and I am all thumbs so far!)
