    Nice! It's always good to have a big red signaling with you in case one gets lost!

    I only have a red backpack ... but everything else tends to being green as I do not really want to be seen.

    Great job on both. Looks like you got the bug net design all figured out. Phenomenal job.

    Jazilla,

    Yeah, it fit like a glove when I just laid out the shape on the bug netting, took a deep breath before cutting out the shape, and then sewed it one. It was far easier than setting up pinning on the net and then attaching it in my opinion.

    Is this your second Warbird with corrected dimensions? If so, how does it differ from the other?

    Thanx!

    Perrito,

    No this was mt first attempt hammock using the DIY plans from this site. I haven't built hammock number two using my corrected plans yet, other than my test hammock which came out perfectly. The big difference between what I built and the corrected patterns is the foot box pattern on my posted patterns is one piece and uses cat curves to smooth out the lines of that side of the hammock. But the big bonus, with the foot pattern changed in my patterns you have a nice symetrical top, and I have a bug net pattern that fits the symetrical top like a glove. This allows you to lay it out on the netting, cut it, and attach it before setting it up as long as you set the ridge line close to the length of the pattern you are using. For example you build from the 9ft pattern you make the ridge line 9ft within an inch or so.

    Excellent work! I'd be proud of myself if I could make anything that remotely resembled that.

    Set my hammock up for a test hang and my daughter wanted to try it out. I had a very hard time getting her out. Looks like I will have to make her one too. You got to love the DIY projects.
