Step 1: Materials

Materials:
Sheet (twin)
knife (Or anything that cuts)
10 feet of rope.

Step 2: Preparing the Sheet

cut the sheet in half lengthwise, or at about 2 1/2 ft from the edge if its not a twin. 

Step 3: Tying the Rope.

cut the rope in half, and tie each piece to the ends of the sheet using the sheet-bend knot.   http://www.animatedknots.com/sheetbend/index.php  will show you how, if you don't know.

Step 4: Finishing

the last step: tie to a tree and relax.
Note- it may look incredibly thin, but it will widen when your in it.

    nice, simple.

    i dunno if you put a rock in the sheet before you tied the sheetbend around it, but if you didn't that will make it much stronger.
