    I hope so! My last sewing project was in 8th grade home ec. It was a disaster.

    I have all winter to get it right though. The bugs won't be back for quite some time.
    With a radical sense of hope, I strive for the seemingly impossible.

    Fronkey, I'm very interested in making this bug net, and I am trying to figure out how much no-see-um material I would need. I have 2 hammocks, one is a DIY that is around 9 ft, and the other is an ENO Double Nest which measures in at 9'4". Should I go with 4 yds? Also, will a square yard be wide enough?

    Well, that is very encouraging! What I'm hearing is that there is hope for me yet. Thanks!

    I just did this one from shear panels. Just gettin my feet wet for some bigger projects. It cost me $8 and some frustration. Took a couple hours.

    Great Video! Never needed one of these because I have always had hammock with the net built on. Well things have changed, I have evolved and now need one. I just ordered some no-see-um and have practiced the way I want the ends but with a little testing i'm now undecided how I want the ends. One thing that was not explained very well was the end holes so maybe some feed back on that would help. Im debating just a big enough hole to pull my continuos suspension loop through or a clinch cord to pull the net tight on the ends. What have you guys done? Pic's below are the clinch cord set up.

    Thanks for watching.

    There are a few things you can do for the ends. I personally just made the hole small enough for the suspension to go through and my gathered end blocks the hole enough that nothing gets in. Some people have done the cinch cord method you showed and others have used velcro or omni tape to keep it closed.
