    First DIY project done. Special thanks to RamblinRev.

    I found some ripstop at Ben Franklin's crafts store today, so I picked up a few yards and made a set of "serpent-tubes" for my tarp. They came out a bit rough (OK, allot rough), but they function! Thanks to Rev for the video series he put out, which helped me along quite a bit.
    The machine I used was one my wife had stored upstairs and hasn't used in 20 years. It's a Brother from around 1970 or so. Took some cleaning up to get it running, and it seems pretty temperamental.
    When I get a chance to string it all up in daylight I'll post a pic or two.

    Next up: a "Different Stuff Sack".

    Eventually, I want to do a BlackCat tarp and an underquilt of some sort. I'm pretty proud of my first DIY project, and can see the potential for addiction with this stuff...

    Well done on your "serpent tubes" ( snake skins ) once you get going with "sew your own" it's hard to stop.
    have fun
