hammock free plans: how to make a
Basic Description It's easy to make this simple hammock with durable fabric and some basic sewing. It is a lightweight, stable and comfortable accompaniment to any time spent in the outdoors. We will also show you a wonderful knot that will allow you to quickly tie up your hammock without causing damage to the trees or posts that you use as supports. You can also include mosquito netting to protect against insects. There is something so pure about swinging in a hammock out in nature: read on for all the details.

step:         3        

With the fabric cut to the desired dimension, you need to sew seams on the edges; if you fail to sew seams, the fabric is likely to fray and slowly fall apart. As shown in the picture on the right, we folded about 3/8" (1cm) of the edges of the fabric twice, and then sewed along the edge of this fold. If you only fold once, the exposed edge of the fabric will fray up to your sew-line which is unsightly. Note that making the seams for the ends is incorporated into the following step.
sew seams on the entire periphery of the fabric
