    bride hammock problems.

    Ok i started maken my bride hammock now i think i just messed up, i have hemmed the edges, now i to the point of sewing the webbing on the sides, well do i sew the hole length of the webbing or will it be ok to put some bar stiches just on the end. If i dont git this soon i am giving up and going with a gathered end hammock, i have six to build in the next month for the family trip.

    You were supposed to match up the webbing with the edge and fold the webbing and ripstop over twice forming a double rolled hem around the webbing. You end up stitching through three layers of nylon and the webbing as demonstrated here...Grizz Bridge and here...Grizz Bridge 2.

    I think i got it, i rolled it only once though, just put one of the kids in it and thay seem to hold pritty well, just dont have the spreeder bar or the right rope to hang it, still have to put end caps and bugnet on. Think this will be one of the younger kids hammock.

    Sorry about the typo, its hard to use my phone thats not that good to be looking stuff up and watch videos on. Thats why i have so many problams finding how to build this hammock, everyone says watch grizz video but it takes me like 4 hours for it to buffer. So i do the best i can with reading all the info, now i am working on figouring out how to make end caps and easiest way to make the triangle and suspension system to hang my contraption i have tryed to build. I am thinking to try a wipping hammock as looks easier. I realy thank everyone for the help. O what else can i use beside amsteel or dynoglide

    If bandwidth is a problem, you might try searching for threads started by Grizzly Adams. You may want to start with the older ones, they go into more detail about construction methods. There are many other authors/threads but here are a few to get your started...
