Here are the basic dimensions. I allowed for a little more length than 36" (38") because I wasn't sure at the time how I would sew the ends up.
Keep in mind that I am 68" tall so you would need to adjust the design based on your height.
- I cut the material to length and folded the it in half marking the 22" and 25" heights at the ends. I then placed my 7.5" deep x 48" long cat curve and pinned it down. Then I cut it out.
-I unfolded it and then sewed the 3/8" polyester webbing down the edges. Leave extra webbing at the ends to sew your triangle ends together and make an area to attach your whoopee slings. I rolled each edge two more times sewing them on each fold (just like in Grizz's videos). This is a little tricky because you want to follow the shape and remember where the cat curve starts and ends. I also think the webbing Grizz uses is better because it stretches less.
- Then I took 4 x8" pieces of webbing and sewed each down to the cat curve so that I could just slip the spreader bar tip in.
-I tied the ends and hung the hammock to make sure it all aligns like it should. Finishing the ends is very hard to describe. I sewed the material at the angle I wanted, turned it inside out and sewed it again (like Grizz does on his end Caps).
- Not having seen the side pockets, I guessed how to do them. I cut them out, rolled a hem on the top edge of the pockets and sewed them up, then sewed the inside edge of the pocket to the cat curve. Note: If I were doing it again when I sewed the pocket together, I would sew it so the outside of the pocket is taller than the inside to attach the bug net.
