You and your Scouts can make your own hammock using the same high-quality fabric major brands use.
First, purchase a 60 x 126-inch crinkle taffeta nylon tablecloth for as little as $12. Watch the video instructions below and learn to make end channels just like the ones you’ll find in pro hammocks.
