This hammock looks easy enough to make and perfect for summer. I have always wanted one to hang under a shady deck or even to bring camping to tie between two trees. The tutorial mentions leather strapping cut to use for connecting loops. This might be a challenge for a home sewers machine needle to pierce. I would choose sturdy woven webbing to make it easier to sew on.
