Rated 5 out of 5★ by ATDusty Great for DIY backpacking gear I just made a DIY backpacking hammock from 3.5 yards of this material and LOVE it. It was easy to sew, a little slippery going through my machine, but not bad at all really (I'm far from being a seamstress and I had no problems with this fabric). A few others I've met through the hammocking forums have made hammocks, tarps and other items from this taslite as well. It really is great material. I'm including photos as well - one of me sitting in the hammock to show it really does support the weight without tearing out :-) , and the other showing the end sewn with the amsteel suspension threaded through. Too bad this is sold out. I would love to try to try making a tarp from it. It's hard to find this now. I bought the last 6 yards of it at my local store...Here's hoping Walmart gets more in stock. 07/15/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Clockwork13 You will be glad you bought this fabric While I am by no means a master of the sewing machine, I can hold my own when given proper time. This fabric made a perfect foundation for a gathered end hammock, a bushcraft-ish deck-style chair, and a frigen awesome custom tarp, all for a fraction of the commercial equivalent. No, really. I now have a huge and totally waterproof tarp after making a silicone and mineral spirit concoction to soak the whole system in, then allowing to air dry. The digital pattern almost makes you dizzy when it is moving under the sewing machine foot with speed. This is not the slickie nylon I assumed it would be, like kinda like ENO hammock material. This feels more like clothing but wads up into a nice pack. It is very strong and holds a seam when set with a hot iron. Could not be more happy with this purchase. Do yourself a favor; make your own gear. You can buy a nice sewing machine and this fabric, make your own rigs and still have it cheaper than paying retail. 01/21/2014
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Xander1 1st wash/dry/iron L-heat, use pinking shears only I made lined curtains, baby bumper pad, bows, pillow, & quilt with this. It's VERY slippery to work with. I used quilting gloves when sewing. Remember to follow correct needle size and check thread type to use with material (nylon) and use it in bobbin as well. NOTE: this material will unravel easy so cut it with pinking shears (and) ONLY after you wash, dry, and THEN press it with iron on low heat. This is to help AVOID unraveling on edges as you lay it out to cut. On any outsde edge I turned it over twice as I ironed it down to help with unraveling then top stiched. I do not have a baby lock but a very good old machine. Regardless, with any machine this material is slippery and not for the faint hearted or inexperienced seamstress but it looks great when finished because it's different. It's perfect for Army gifts. One more thing...Quilters can stipple this if they use a light weight material under this material, then a thin batting or even another layer of something like cotton as batting, then place another thin material on back to secure it all together. Bast the outer edges and it's ready to stipple on your design. This will be the front side and you can then back it, stiching it in various places to secure it to the front. Edge it all around & your finished. I have included a picture of a practice piece, maybe it will help you understand what I'm trying to say. 04/08/2014
