    DIY table cloth hammock

    I finally threw together my first DIY hammock this weekend. I used a 90" by 132" crinkled taffeta table cloth. I was wondering how big is the risk of this fabric picking and developing a major defect that would compromise its integrity?

    I've slept every night in a tablecloth hammock for a couple of months now, with three cats in and out. No problems yet!

    All I have is praise for these table cloth hammocks. Mine hangs in the living room. Most nigjts it is me and 2 kids @ 50 and 55# each plus a dog. We have not had any issue at all with the material.
