Snake skins and stuff sacks
« on: October 05, 2012, 02:42:04 PM »
Well today I made two stuff sacks and one pair of Snake Skins for my hammock's tarp and poncho liner. I wanted to keep my tarp in a separate stuff sack as to make it more useful and the quick set up is great. For you guys that use tarps only these are still a good option for you too. IMHO it really speeds up set up and break down time and less fighting tethers cords.

Those look great. I have skins on mine and they really are handy. The sacks look great too. I have to get to a couple sewing projects. I need a little prodding.

Thanks UTC! I'm just getting ready for full fledged camping season. I do enjoy building camps and hanging out in them but when the humidity gets out of here I want to do plenty of hiking. Halloween weekend is really our true first cold front that is truly cool.

Those look great!  I'm wanting to get into something like that as well, but I'm having trouble getting the thread tension set for material that light...plus my sewing skills are minimal at best!

Great job on those! :thumbsup:

Man I used the directions to load the thread and set it for straight stitch. On top of the machine I'm using is a adjustment screw with a + or - symbol. Just have a couple Rum and cokes while your doing it. That way if the bride makes fun of a crooked stitch you have an excuse.

Slick man! Awesome sewing skills! I'm impressed that you had a go at this in the first place... Good work and good thinking.
