    No,

    This has larger holes.

    No-seeum fabric is what is used on the WBBB if I'm not mistaken.

    Got my tablecloth the other day and today I made it into a hammock. My son wanted Maroon. Burgundy it is. This being my first DIY hammock I sewed a channel on both ends but I only used the channel on 1 end and tied it off as Knotty instructs. The other end I did the W and whipped it per Just Jeffs insturctions. Both methods were fairly simple to do. Some time this evening my son and I will go to a local park and try it out from both ends and see what we like best. I like that it is simple enough to take apart and rewhip any way we want. Also decided to try a structural ridge line. Hammock turned out to be 116 inches long so I made the ridge line 96 inches. (83% of the hammock length) Should be simple enough to make the ridge line longer or shorter if we are not happy with the length it is. Found my spare straps now where did I put those dynaglide whoopies???

    ??? The tablecloths come hemmed. You could have run a thin line (like mason's line) through the existing hem, pulled the gather tight and tied it off a la Knotty. No additional channel needed. I don't know where you put your dynaglide whoopies though. Sorry!

    Pips I still don't know how you got anything through that tiny channel. A quick hem seemed easier than figuring that out to me...

    And I also don't know where the dynaglide whoopies are.

    I just liked the fact I didn't have to sew a darned thing and just whipped it with mason's line.

    HYOH, it's cheap enough to experiment.

    I've yet to place my own order from tableclothsfactory, but a friend of mine used my Dritz loop turner on his, and was able to get 1.9 techline through the hems on his.

    Still trying to decide on colors, my friend got the navy, and it just seems like it'll get to warm in the sun.

    I have no idea how anyone would get anything through that narrow channel. I sewed my own as well.

    I got the gold hammock. Really happy with the color and consider it my New Orleans Saints hammock. GEAUX SAINTS!

    Its all about options. I actually triple sewed each channel because I also wanted the option to just put the whoopie directly through the channel and hang it if I wanted. If you watch knotty's video and skip to the one minute mark you will see how to attach the whoopie sling. Or just larks head it just behind the whipping. Simple. I wanted to be able to try any variation of whipping with just one hammock besides, sewing in 2 channels is so simple even I can do it.

    With the 2 methods of whipping I tried I can say that I like the w method at my head and the warbonnet (the method Knotty shows) at my feet. Tried it the opposite and did not like it at all. Also tried with the ridge line and without. Im loving the ridge line. Now I need to try the 90" wide.

    interesting choice. I think most people will choose to whip the same way on both sides. I use the warbonnet whipping for both sides and like it very well.
