    Questions about stuff sack for hammock, Design

    Hi all,

    Just got done making my UL 1.1oz ripstop hammock, and have moved onto the stuff sack that will be sewn on similar to eno's and GT's. I'm having a difficult time figuring out how they sew theirs though. I've seen DIY Gear Supply's instructions and made a few bags that way, but my major complaint is that my top channel always seems to overlap at the opening and not look right.

    My Grand Trunk stuff sack is folded over on the bottom, not one of the sides, and seems to have a flat felled seam on both sides. I've spent a few hours trying to come up with my own but it ended up not looking right at the opening (where the side meets the channel openings). Has anyone made this style sack or understand how they do the opening? It's really bugging me!

    Thanks.

    Not familiar with the grand trunk sack and my Eno is not handy. I would suspect what you are thinking is a flat felled seam is just stitched with a double needle machine..

    IIRC, on my Eno, you stuff it by turning the pocket inside outcry to think of it that way.
