    Cool DIY Materials ORDERED!!! Itchn' for some Stitchn'

    Yesterday I placed my order for a good bit of materials from DIY Gear Supply!

    Silnylon (Olive Brown) 9 yrds
    Nylon Webbing (1″) 10'
    Grossgrain (1″) 16'
    1″ Polyester Webbing (Woodland Camo) 16'
    GŁtermann Mara (Brown) 1 Spool
    D-Rings (1″) 6
    Amsteel Blue (Gray, 1/8″) 30'
    Shock Cord (1/8″) 20'
    Tech Line (1.9mm) 50'
    Aluminum Y Stakes (Black) 4

    I also have purchased some fabric from a fellow HF member that is also on it's way.
    1.1 Ripstop MARTPAT Camo 10 Yards

    Looks like I have some projects to do!
    -1 or 2 Hammocks with the 1.1 Ripstop
    -Hex Tarp with the silnylon
    -Whoopie Slings
    -Tree Straps
    -Various stuff Sacks

    I can't wait to get started on them and even more so, put them to use on the trail. I have pretty much zero experience making DIY backpacking gear other than a bug net I threw together last week and 2 stuff sacks. Other than that I have sewn a few things like a sail for my dinghy and hundreds of cornhole bags.
    Should be a learning experience and I imagine it will be fairly rewarding also.

    Thank you all for posting your DIY project and guides here and throughout the internet!

    Have fun.

    My wife made the mistake of asking just how many DIY hammocks have I made....I told....so far.....about 10. Then she asked why and I told her just in case someone needs to borrow one.

    Why would you stop unless you ran out of fabric. I am contemplating making a cat cut hammock.

    Thanks for the offer FlScout!

    I have enough fabric coming to make 2 hammocks. I can envision myself making them as gifts in the future. I have seen where other folks are doing so and it seems like a great idea.

    10! My goodness! Hopefully when I get a few hammocks and tarps under my belt I'm going to try my hand at making a pack or 2......
