Hello invisible internet friends! Yesterday I finished my first hammock, and I thought I'd share some pictures! I was gonna go through but construction process, but it's basically (no, exactly) a rectangle with seamed edges.
Here's my finished hammock, the fabric was purchased at a Joann Etc. (a fabric store), it's definitely ripstop, but I have a couple yards of 1.1oz from DIYGS and this stuff is a lot heavier and thicker than that. I figured I use the high quality stuff once I had figured out what I was doing.
A picture of my seams at their straightest. My thread injector doesn't assist with this so there are some serious waves in my seams but I double stitched everything so hopefully it will hold.
My hammock hanging. There are no good trees to hang on in the near vicinity of my house, so I'm hanging on the porch! The suspension is from my Amazonas Easy Traveller Hammock. The cord is unnecessarily thick, and I'll be trading it out for some serious suspension at a later date.
And finally, ME!! Hey everyone!! Me in my handmade hammock! I don't have a weight yet as I don't have a scale yet but I'll be bringing it to work with me and I'll have the weight for ya'll when I get back. Now it's time to start working with my 1.1oz. Who's excited? I am!
