    I'm OK with seam sealing. I am using the hard Tyvek. I was just thinking that if the seams ran vertical any dripping might follow the seam down the inside?

    That's a good idea about using a small needle. I think I have a fairly large needle in my sewing machine, I'm going to change it out to a smaller needle and see what happens.
