I'll also edit this post and add in the bit on how a french seam can be helpful for attaching netting and a tent wall.
Edit...in case the picture on the right is confusing...the green line is supposed to be where you stitch the two patterns together and the while lines are to show where the pattern is drawn out on the sheet of fabric. Finally...the black line represents where the seam is...for tarps and hammocks this isn't all that helpful but for tents and packs or shirts it would be very helpful so that you don't have seams that are folded different directions (I once folded a flat-felled seam on one side of a tent door the wrong way before...so when I brought the doors together the seam didn't line up, nor did the bottom but that's an easier fix...that experience is why I do this now).
Thanks for the pics, they are a huge help. You know it's a good one when I stare for a few bits then "Oh, I See..."
