So with my latest diy 1.9oz ripstop hammock, I was teaching the family dog to jump in and out (with the help of some cookies) and when we were done, I noticed a spot where her nail must have caught the fabric just right, and there is a small, "nick" in the fabric. you can feel it, and when I put my finger on the other side of the fabric, I can see my finger, but it isnt torn all the way through.

My question is: is it ok to use with the small nick (around 1/2" long) or should I watch it carefully? or should I sew a ripstop patch on both sides?
