    It was very comfy. I added the side-stretch after the test hang. Cant wait to test that out.

    I am going to judge you're thread-injecting skills... they're great. Those stitch lines are straighter than what I've done. Nice job, congrats on your first DIY. Be careful, it probably wont be the last

    Looks sweet. Especially those whoopie slings...

    Are you planning on making a tarp to go with it?
