I made my boyfriend a tablecloth hammock for Christmas. He hasn't used it a whole lot, but when he did, he said it felt "funny." So I hooked it up in my stand and spent a night in it and, yeah, it felt kinda cockeyed, way too much fabric on one side. So I figured I must have whipped the ends wrong or something and took it apart to fix it. I found that the taffeta was ripped! Not on the seam I'd sewn or near the whipping (I used the zip tie method) but the fabric itself had torn about an inch and a half down from the zip tie. I immediately checked the other hammocks I'd made that I still have (four in total) and they were all fine. My main hammock I've been sleeping in for six to eight months and no sign of wear. Has anyone else had this happen? Did I get a bunk tablecloth? I sure am glad I found it before he went crashing onto the floor, he's already had one hip replaced, I'd feel horrible if I was the cause of him needing the other one replaced!
