Jack Line - Home Made?

Wonder if I'm missing something. Rather than paying over one hundred fifty dollars for webbing jack lines, can't I just buy 1 ", type 18 webbing and and make my own? If so and my intent is to run one up both sides and clip lines to base of cleat and then run back to tie off/adjust on stern cleats, what type of clip/biner suggested for one end of each line. I don't want them sewn together at bow point. .58 cents a foot on the webbing looks pretty good.
