I made a hammock

I followed some online tutorials and ordered some crinkle taffeta table cloths form tableclothfactory.com. THis hammock used a 60×126 purple tablecloth. I sewed a channel in each end with my trusty pacesetter 2100 and some gutterman sew all. I put 5 rows of stitching at each end instead of the four rows most people do. (I’m weird and prefer multiples of 5… just take that for what it is.)

(ignore the laundry drying on the chair backs)

I had some cord I took off my hennesy hammock, so I strung that though my channels. I used a clove hitch to tie it off to my back yard hammock stand.


I feel obligated to point out that I have no idea how strong this hammock actually is. My mom, brother, and I all gave it a test without any issues, but use your own judgement in such matters.
