Hi, im new to the forum so hello too all, im from Belfast in Northern Ireland.
i plan on making a double layer ripstop nylon hammock (like a dd hammock) with the two layers sealed by velcro tabs at intervals along one side and sewn on the other and at each end, i also intend on adding the asym guy out/stablization points like on the Hennessy hammock. I would also like to make a removable insect net much the same as the one on the dd travel hammock but am undecided as to how to attach it to the hammock so that it is easily removable, using zips seems a more expensive (im trying to make the whole thing for alot less than the dd model) solution and im struggling to find zips long enough. Would velcro work? would i have issues sewing this? as in parts i will have to sew through two layers of velcro and fabric where i encounter hem, and the velcro for the netting and the velcro joining the two ripstop nylon layers.
Any help greatly appreciated
