    New hammock and under quilt

    I have been working on a lot of DIY gear since purchasing a sewing machine about one month ago. All four of us now have hammocks, below is a couple of pictures of my daughter enjoying hers. The camping that our family does together is almost always in the summer. With temps getting down to 65 degrees at the lowest we decided to take our kids old sleeping bags and turn them into light weight UQs for them. Here are a few pictures of some of those projects...

    Welcome to the addiction. Another mad-man behind a thread injector!
    It looks like the kids are going to benefit greatly from your newly acquired skill.

    Fronkey, my son agrees with you.... I should be finishing up my daughters "Princess" UQ this afternoon. I'll be sure to post that as well....
