Yep. Just Jeff's site will get you on the right track. My wife and I have both made homemade hammocks using those instructions that came out right the first time and didn't cost a lot. I think I spent $8 on the hammock and I'm using a $45 sil-nylon tarp from Ettowah Outfitters with it because we hate sewing sil-nylon.
