I used Raiffnuke's plans for the hat, but I made the three separate pockets and then did most of the quilting to them individually before joining. I found that I could get straighter quilting that way. His plans can be found at http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=52970
For the doors on the tarp, I do use 1/2 inch Velcro the entire length which matched the width of my bias tape. I do also have grosgrain ties on the bottom of each door that I can tie to keep the Velcro from tearing open at the base. I also have a small loop that I can attach some rope to stake them to the ground if I need.
The doors are just the still attached fabric from making a hex tarp. rather than cutting off these ends, I just folded them over and bias taped my edge, at two points on each side I made a small slit (3/8") at the seam line, I slid a longer piece of grosgrain through the slit 1/2 way and then sewed it all together inside the bias tape. This gave me tie offs to use when I don't want the doors open.
