    My first DIY hammock.

    So I did a 3/4 hem on all sides, ran some string and tied them up. And larksheaded the tied / gathered end. I also ran the whoopie through the channel and larkshead and have the floppy sides etc. Any thought or feedback? 10 foot long 60 inches wide.

    Did the accordian bind on the end and that help a little bit on floppy sides but still good and comfy.

    if you don't like the floppy sides, try the Knotty Stretch-Side modification... it works great!
