I actually finished all the seams tonite and am starting to sew on the tie outs tomorrow. A hammock sock is definitely next, I also have a few ideas for an underquilt.
I am still a beginner and my seams are wobbly at best but getting better. It may not be pretty but I know this tarp will be functional.
This is my 3rd tarp. The first one pissed me off after I was 80% finished and I trashed it... vowing to never sew again.... seriously peed me off.
My second was ok but had alot of mistakes and I ended up using the fabric to make a hammock for my daughter (it was all DWR).
My biggest hurdle learning to sew was actually getting the machine setup and going. Now I can fill the bobbin, thread the needle, and be sewing in minutes.
I will definitely post pics when I am finished with this one. I am kinda proud of it.
