    Thats an absolutely fabulous looking rig your daughter has there. Now all you have to do is get the indoor stand build so she can spend everynight in it!!!!

    Great job! Start them out early.

    BTW, if you find any pink camo ripstop nylon, let me know. I've been looking for it for years for my girls...

    Lol...thanks everyone. I used walmart Dora fabric, the pink tree huggers webbing came from hancock fabric right here in Ankeny, IA, purple ripstop for tarp from hancock, pink poly grosgrain tarp trim came from walmart, and the hammock body poly grosgrain came from walmart. 7/64 amsteel blue is on it's way for her 3 whoopie suspensions and I robbed my whoopies for the pics. She carries her stuff sack w hammock around with her. Her hammock is 6' long by 44" wide. She is soon to be 3 in a few months, and it should fit her for a while. Tarp is 9X5.

    I set out to hopefully find pink for her, but settled on the purple. I could have ordered through these guys, but wanted to make it this weekend, so I bought locally.
    Here is some pink I found by googling pink ripstop

    Very nice! Now you need to make 5 more set-ups like that so that she can have a sleep over with her friends.

    Thanks. I've got plenty of pink ripstop nylon for hammock making, but no pink camo nylon ripstop. I don't think they make it.
