    DIY Hammock and Sli-Nylon Tarp

    Just got back from testing a DIY Hammock that the wife made for me. The Banana Hammock (the pictures will explain the name) was made using the Hennessey clone instructions found within the forums here.

    The Banana Skinz are my wifes own creation.

    Fabric is 1.9 RipStop from Jo-Ann's (love the 50% off coupons).

    My wife also made a black Hennessey clone for her self...







    Got to love this hobby....

    They are great.

    She has since loved the idea of hammocks soooo much that she now has 4 different hammocks in various colours.

    Just found out about the 50% off and my buddy went to Jo Ann's in Athens Georgia. We got 10 yards of 1.9 ripstop (black) for $35! Planning to do the HH diy.
