Very nice looking hammock. If you can fall alseep in it it I would count it as a success.
My sewing ability is limited to hand sewing a knot in my webbing loop to keep my Dutch Clips from falling out.
If only Brandon made a camo BB. Guess I 'll have to learn how to sew.

Gunner, you are ahead of me as I cannot sew by hand at all. Prior to making this, my machine sewing experience was limited to making not-very-straight lines in scraps of ripstop. I eventually moved up to cutting a pilowcase in half and sewing one end up to make a cover for the machine. After that I made a ridgeline organizer. THen jumped straight into the hammock. Don't ask to look at any of my seams, some aren't too pretty. But if you read the sewing advice here, watch RevRay's videos on gear making and just practice some you can do it. One piece of advice I found to be true is to let the machine run fast and don't look at the needle. When I do that my seams are the straightest. Good luck!
