    From The Poundshop To The Hammock

    Went into the loft earlier to grab a hammock to mod and I found this as soon as I got up there.

    This is one of those camping hangers that you keep your toiletries in. Tooth paste, soap, face cloth, you get the picture. Made cheaply, don't weigh nothing at all, but surprisingly very strong for the price of a quid.

    I brought it down and had a very rare brainwave. I was thinking earlier in the day that when in the hammock I always end up with everything from keys to cash cards floating all over the place when sleeping. I never use the sewed in pocket as they are always at the bottom of the hammock, not in easy reach.

    I have looked on all the selling sites for something light and able to hold all the stuff I need without getting out of the hammock but the price is usually over a tenner.

    Anyway, this is what I come up with.

    I cut the original pouch in half, just the right place that the bottom half needed a few quick stitches at the top and finished it off with gaffer tape to make it look better and hang stronger on my ridgeline.

    Thanks for reading.
