I volunteered to organize a hammock project for our group of about ten twelve year old girls. We're trying to keep the cost at about 20$ each
We'll be doing tablecloth gathered end hammocks all the same tan color. http://www.tableclothsfactory.com/ta...shes-s/132.htm
personalized with the 99¢ colored chair sashes http://www.tableclothsfactory.com/Ta...ashes-s/74.htm
I'm thinking the 60x126, but maybe 60x102 would be better, what do you guys think?the tallest girl is about five six.
I'm a little stumped about how to handle suspention. I have 500 ft of amsteel at 15¢/ft and don't mind making a bunch of whoopies, but I always use carabineers and the tree straps that came with my eno to my setup. Carabineers would put us way over budget and I want something as simple as we can do so that the girls (and adult leaders) don't get frustrated with them. Keep in mind that a group of preteen girls will focus their attention for upwards of three minutes before assuming they know it all.
I'm thinking I can get cheep webbing somewhere (link anyone?)and do short sections with a sewn loop on each end then toggle to whoopies that are perminantly fixed to the hammock?
I'm pretty new to hammocking(like not 100% sure how you use toggles), so talk to me like I'm clueless
