[Hammock Camping] Re:Sewing 1.1 oz ripstop
- If you guys remember, I had a crossways tear on my hammock body.
Two layer 1.1 oz RN, made pretty much like a Risk TestHammock. I
finally got around to repairing it. We used <drumroll>
The Overlap and ZigZag Stitch Method!
About 14 inches of overlap. Five rows of stitches pretty evenly
spaced, but it's not like we measured them or anything. Big, long
zigzags. I just now got into it and it held me fine. No popping
sounds or anything ominous. We are car camping this weekend, so I
will be able to test for a couple of nights in a lower-risk
If the ZZ fails, I am going to try an alternative of the adhesive
patch method, which would be... oh never mind, I'm sure the
stitching will work.
Thanks everyone for all the input!
