Yes I did and I got it bad. I made my first DIY gathered end hammock out of the wm camo my little bro was able to find for me and a no so nice bag for the hammock. Next I am going to attach the bag pocket to the hammock body. And today I went to hancocks and bought five colors of Ripstop (half price) To make gear hammocks/wilderness chairs, one for me and four for the other guys that are going on a 7 day trip with me in June. Still need to find me some mule tape to replace my large straps or break down and get some Amstel. I am just a very cheap diyer. But it has been fun. After my wife gave me the sewing rundown I was off. Thanks to everyone on here that post DIY info to help newbies like me.
