    Of course. My package with 3 tablecloths shows up as I am leaving to go to work for my first night on a 3 month stint on graves. wish I could work on these at work. My employer might have a cow if I do though. Hmmm... Might just get creative and do it anyway.
    Speaking of creative. Does anyone know of some magnets strong enough to hold a hammock and person? Haven't really researched it yet. Thought someone might have gone looking into this.

    I bought a PapaSmurf DangerBird72 that is made from crinkle taffeta tablecloths, and I've slept in it every night but two since I got it in early July (mostly indoors). It is the most comfortable thing I've ever slept in.

    I'm pondering making a "house" version so I don't wear this one out too quickly. The 90" was cavernous, and had enough left at the sides to cover up with. I got a pair of smaller ones to play with for the "house" hammock (I forget the size).

    That serious enough?

    Ya tendertoe said he uses his as his go to hammock as well. Once I get mine I will test it. If I really like it I will make a bug net for them ( I order 2 60x126 ) and sell my WBBB 1.1 SL and use it for my only hammock Then maybe later on down the road buy a Dangerbird.

    One down, more to go

    I built a 60x120 today for my son. I put channels on the ends and hung it in his room using 550 paracord. He only weighs 59 lbs so I think we'll be fine. I have some Amsteel Blue coming next week. I'll replace the paracord then. This is, by far, the most comfortable hammock I have ever slept in. It's not gram-weenie light, but it is definitely light. It would be fine for car camping or short backpacking trips where comfort and cost outweigh a pure weight concern. I'll be building similar hammocks for my daughter, my wife and myself soon. Most will be used at home. William and I are making ripstop hammocks with bug net, tarps and underquilts for our winter camping, Thanks to all who contributed to this thread.

    I have a stack of tablecloths but no fuchsia, but as you and another forum member would have to pay shipping, seems to me it would be much more practical to just buy a fuchsia one for $13 and free shipping and just have a black blank on hand for that inevitable next one you make for someone...

    At what, $5 minimum for shipping these days, you might possibly save $3?

    Just sign up for TF's newsletter and they come out with free shipping often.
    Also they let you know on the sales they have. Save some buck that way for sure.

    Has anyone tried any of their Polyester table cloths?

    Is there a difference in the tafetta and the polyester?
