    1. Gear hammock to keep stuff off ground, found a scorpion at last hang and wouldn't want that in your shoes, hang off ridgeline or suspension or
    2. ridgeline bag or
    3. headend bag for those little things you may need in the middle of the night or
    4. stuff sacks

    Just for starters.

    Sounds like the perfect bit of left overs for a Jerry Chair.

    Or if that doesn't strike your fancy, stuff sacks are always a great thing to have around.

    They pretty much summed up everything I was going to say.

    Start with a stuff sack, of course.

    For leftovers from future projects, you can never have too many Chico bags. That's the reusable grocery bag that stuffs down to the size of your fist in its own integrated stuff sack. Practice making your own silnylon on the result and see if it will hold water.

    Another simple project that's on my list is to make an ultralight backpack to use as a day bag when I'm bike touring. For getting to the campsite it's a regular stuff sack with some extra straps; after camp is set up it holds lunch, the camera and an outer layer for shorter hikes.
