    Good luck dude!

    I have been trying to find girly downproof colors to make some quilts for my lady, but no luck there.

    Your daughter is going to love it!

    We use spreader bars when camping with the kids. Here's a post with some details on the bars. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=33909 It works really well for us. My wife hangs with one, I hang with another, and the oldest hangs solo. I like being able to reach over and make sure my daughter hasn't wiggled out of her TQ. She seems to take some comfort knowing I'm close by, particularly during gusty thunder storms like we had at the Grayson Highlands Hang last Fall. It's also made for some special daddy/daughter moments, looking out at the moon during the middle of the night, listen to coyotes bark, watching the sun come up.

    Below are a some pics of our tandem rig set up in the backyard.
    That photo of your daughters is so dang cute man.

    I just made one for my 3 yr old this weekend. She wouldn't stop bugging me until I stopped everything I was doing. I'm gonna try to attach some pics, but haven't done that before.LOL

    Well, the hammock body is done...didn't take long at all. Dimensions are 82" X 46" I used the Warbonnet method of whipping, running a channel through the end and cinching it before whipping. I think it looks cleaner that way.

    It's only temporarily whipped with camo utility cord right now just to get an idea of the final shape. It's looking good thus far! I'll take some pics once the rest of my supplies come in.

    The bug netting will be a draped pocket style, with the pockets on the inside. This will give her a little gear stash, as well as being easier for her to get in and out of.
