    How Wide?

    How wide is you guys' hammock? I want make a hammock that don't give me the burrito feeling where all the excess edges just wrapped around me as I lay in it. I also want to make one without the side tie outs. Reason I want to do without the side tie out, is because I plan to use a removeable cocoon style bug net and don't want to make holes in bug net for the tie outs.

    If you buy material at 60" wide of which most of it comes in,,then half in rolled hem down both sides,,works for me. And don't trim the slavage edge off it,,just sew it rolled or flat hem with your sewing machine tucking it inside.

    I was planning buying 64" wide and trim it to the width I want then hem it.
