    Stuff sack "Bishop bag"

    I wanted a bishop bag for my tablecloth hammock. I thought about sewing one but then remembered my thread injector skills are less than stellar . This is where my "secret spaceweasel" comes in. In my box of goodies was a therm a rest stuff sack. Why couldn't I use that? Well I test fit the hammock( I really didn't think it would all fit) and it fit with room to spare. I put in a grommet just above the finger pocket handle . The little pocket keeps my whoopie sling nice and neat.

    It makes my day when I can reuse something and it works out perfectly.

    Since I have gotten into hammocking (especially DIY), I see things differently for recycle possabilities. Similar to when I took a B&W photography course in college.

    Seems like 3/8 is the size they sell at Wal-Mart... Works for amsteel pretty well...

    3/8, the bead on the loop of the whoopie fits with a little wiggling.
