The tarp looks awesome!
I have a quick question...
In steps 3, why cut the sides to the shape you did?
Why not leave the sides flat?
I have a a tarp in the works for my next DIY hammock and will be soaking it in the mineral spirits and silicone tomorrow and before I sew it all together (after I H2o-proof it) I would like to know the benefits to having the curved sides verses the flat sides. It seems to be a waste of material... or am I missing something?
