I bought some material at walmart to make a 2 layer hammock. It is 1.1 nylon and 1.9 polyester. My question is, does it make a difference which material is inside? My guess is to put the heavier poly on the out side and line it with the thinner nylon. The second layer is a little for strength and to hold a pad.
My plan is to roll hem them on all sides then sew them together on both ends and one side. I will sew them together about 8 inches each end of the fourth side leaving the rest open to slide the pad in. I will sew a one inch hem on each end for the climbing cord with d rings to gather it. Is it stronger to put the cord through the channel then roll it down and tie it again and then girth hitch a loop of cord with the rings attached or to just pass the loop through the channel and then the rings through the loop on the other end? I hope that is understandable.
