So after being brand new to hammocks I decided to jump right in. I went to the fabric store thinking about starting with some DIY straps to change my suspension for my ENO and walked out of the store with 8 yards of ripstop nylon. So After much help from the wife (Since I have NEVER sewn in my life) and about 4 to 5 hrs of sewing I have a brand new double layered hammock. I used the design from DIY with a little modification.(only one side opening). It came out to a total of 1lb 7 oz but I had no worry about that so its all good.
So after it is all said and done I have learned some things. I need to work on my sewing. The edges will work but are not that great of quality. Second, if the top layer is wider then the bottom layer it makes things harder to sew it evenly. And now I have a new addiction.
