    table cloth bridge?

    just a quick question----has any one made a bridge hammock using a table cloth from tablecloths factory? If so, did you use webbing on the edges? Also, how did it hold up?(any stress where the webbing is sewn on?)

    I have made 2 bridge hammocks from the polyester crinkle taffeta. I used 1/2" webbing for the edges. So far it is holding up great, no issues with the stitching (other than they aren't the straightest). There are no apparent stress issues with the webbing. I only have about 10 nights of use on them. so we will see how they hold up after more use.

    Cheers

    Whaaaaat. That is a great idea...I kind of want to do this now.

    Did you follow the regular bridge instructions from Grizz?

    That is exactly what I did. I followed Grizz's videos on how to make a Grizz bridge. However I made mine such that the head and foot end are the same width (fabric and spreader bar).
