Thread: No patience

  1. #1

    No patience

    I got my material in to make my hammock. I was going to hem the outside edges and add another color to the outside. Well the main color is 60" wide. I was going to add another twoish feet. Well I couldn't wait. I used my wood burning tool and cut it to 11 feet. I didn't want to go to where the sewing machine is so I just got out some Paracord binders and poly strap. I gathered each end and hung it up. This thing is so comfy I don't think I'm going to do anything to it except replace the Paracord with whoopsie slings when they come in. I don't want to get out.

    Edit: oh yeah. I will probably add a ridge line too

    I would at least hem the edges to reinforce against the strains of getting in and out.

    I was thinking the same thing. It's not ripstop. It's crinkle nylon. Thanks for the advice. I think I'm going to try add the extra width too. I bought the fabric to do it so I might as well do it so I might as well do it

    Yeah. I read that thread. It is tempting. I have an idea in my head that I want and it's hard for me to tell myself to stop and let it be. Lol. The colors are not what I want though so I might let it stay like this until I get what I want.
