    Question Q: special instructions for double layer gathered end hammock?

    Quick question: any special instructions/suggestions for making a double layer gathered end hammock?

    I was hoping to take advantage of the tableclothfactory sale to make a double layer hammock on the cheap. Ideally, would like to have the ability to slide in some sort of insulation between the layers for time when temps drop overnight.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think DIY Gear has instructions.
    When you sew the side edges together only sew about 1/3 on the right side foot end and 1/3 on the left side head end. That helps ease access for inserting insulation

    Thanks for the rapid responses! wwk10: thanks also for the reference to DIY Gear Supply site. They have an image there that makes it clear how to assemble the double layer gathered end hammock. Now that I have an idea what to do, I've got to find someone with a thread injector that will let me borrow it!
