    Good question! I'll see if I can find any instructions. Keith (blackbishop351) used grosgrain to shore up the hole and keep it from fraying. The one he made me is still going strong after a few years of use.

    for the hole I used a button hole seam ( zig-zag around the opening, then cut the hole open, sear the extra fabric with lighter or other heat source)
    it works well, no fraying and simple

    You can actually make a double sided stuff sack into a true Blackbishops bag by cinching down the drawstring on one end and permanently tying it off. The result is a fixed hole that is not cut but has hemmed edges that won't unravel.

    I like my double end stuff sacks better than my actual Blackbishops bag though as I like the ability to stuff from either end and I also color code / mark my suspension so I know head from foot...

    You can also use the double ended sack to store while in place just like the BB bag. Just cinch one end closed once the bag is positioned and it will stay right there w/ the other side open.

    I actually made a hybrid of the two. It ends up being a two compartment stuff sack, with the small compartment being about 1/3 the size of the main compartment. The hole for passing the suspension through is a buttonhole stitched slot on the piece of nylon that separates the two compartments inside the sack. I put the hole off center, close the the edge of the bag, so that when deployed the sack lays as close the the suspension line as possible, so it can be used for storage. I also put a small pocket on the outside with snaps, so that I can store toggles, etc.

    The bag stays at the head end, so when packing up I undo the foot end suspension, stuff the hammock and foot end whoopie sling into the main compartment, and cinch the bag up. Then the head end whoopie gets coiled and tucked into the smaller compartment, and the tree straps go in there as well.

    Best of both worlds.

    I have some pics on here somewhere from a while back...it is the Bishop bag concept, but with a false bottom, draw string on both ends, stake side pouch and shoulder strap.
    The foot end of the suspension goes through the hole on the false bottom and the line is stored there,

    I like a double ended stuff sack better than a BB Bag for the same reasons that GvilleDave mentioned above.
