    Fronkey Inspired Bug Net

    For my new hammock I wanted to make a bug net.

    I watched Fronkey's video and read the thread on it.

    It was hands-down the easiest thing I've ever sewn.

    I got no-seeum netting from diygearsupply.

    Here's a video

    Really cool idea with the omni tape and I love to see all the mods people are doing on the design as well. Really great job dude!

    Head over to www.diygearsupply.com

    It all depends on your specs and what you have on hand. I had some of these on hand so it was a bit cheaper.

    For the exact item in the video you will need

    7 yards of noseeum 24.85
    1 spool of thread 3.65
    6 feet of shock cord 1.20
    1 cord lock (or some cordage for a barrel knot) .23

    30 bucks plus shipping.

    If you make the hammock from the other post you can save on the price of the thread and shipping.

    Same here. I was thinking I have to order a bugnet soon but I think I'm just going to make this design. Your description of it's pro's sold me as well.
