    If I heard correctly you were using "supplex nylon" for your fabric. Is that suggested as the type of fabric to use or can I use good old fashion ripstop?

    Oh man I thought you wanted a dog hammock. I had already come up with a plan in my head. I think fast apparently. I had a kids hammock pictured but only 2 ft wide or so.

    But this might help. I made a gear storage thing for a friend of mines hammock. I have since added cord along the bottom edge cause it would slide alone the suspension triangle. Making it a little deeper might be what your looking for maybe.
    Oh and I am not even close to being good on camera so take that into consideration.

    lol I for sure do not want a dog hammock.

    I think a bridge with it's flatter lay will help with having Kiba in there. She already does great in a gathered end, but I think she will be more comfy laying by my feet in warmer conditions.

    Your gear addition is a cool idea. However, I want Kiba in the hammock with me instead of in a separate compartment.

    With the gear storage I was thinking something totally different. The guy wanted to keep his possible wet or muddy shoes in there instead of on the ground,

    For Kiba take out the end cap and sew the gear storage directly to the hammock. Better yet if you make the end long enough you wouldn't have to attach it to the hammock it would already be. I believe the Chrysalis storage is like what I am talking about. Do it at both ends and you have gear storage and doggy storage.

    That's pretty much what I was thinking by making the hammock longer to have more room for Kiba to lay down. Granted, I would have to think about how big of a tarp I would have to use for cover as well.

    I personally don't need a gear storage because I just lay it on the ground next to me for easy access. lol

    Do you happen to have a diagram showing the pattern with measurements, materials, and basic sew instructions (like straight seam here, zig-zag stitch here..etc)? I would love to make a bridge hammock to see if I can get a more stable and comfy hang.

    I recommend watching all the videos in this set. I made 4 bridge hammocks as of now and all from just watching his videos. Grizz gives all the measurements you need just have a pen and paper ready to write. Good luck to you.

    A new adventure.

    I am feeling a bit inspired been a few months since my last diy. Can't seem to fight the urge. Thank you all.
