    Will your next hammock have a built in "ruffled bed skirt" around the bottom? Inquiring minds want to know. BD

    (Yes, I did just compare baseball and sewing.)
    Sounds like a good comeback the next time your son calls you a girl for sewing!

    I told him to do that exact thing...and if anybody asks, it's sil - so it adds extra rain protection and storage!

    HE, you could make the first truly womans hammock. It would sell, my niece wants me to make her a pink one and she is only 3.

    PS It has to have Dora on it she said.

    the possibilities are endless. They charge like 30 bucks for those hiker underwear now. You could make some sil ones and "dress" it up a bit with a ruffle. BD

    Oh, another thought. My wife laughed when I first started walking over to moms to sew up my first bags. After I fixed one of her throw pillows from the couch she bought me my own machine. Yeah baby, I wear the pant and I can fix them too.

    LOL...I've hemmed 6 or 7 pairs of pants for the Boss now. And more to come, I'm sure! She told me the other day that she'd been bragging to her coworkers about my sewing skills I was mortified until she told me that all the women were impressed - apparently they can't get their husbands to do anything useful. I told her to just make sure NOT to tell the guys she works with!

    Haha - he did that this morning, actually.

    Jazilla - I've seen pink Dora fabric in Walmart. I think it was even in the dollar bin. Not ripstop or anything but probably enough for an indoor 3yo hammock.

    Um...go ahead, kid. Guess who's coming to dinner?

    I found this post searching for what type of sewing machine I might want to buy to make DIY gear. Now I’ll have to reconsider it! I can easily see my daughter doing this to me when it would be least appreciated.
