I have been making my first tarp over the course of the last few days and figured I'd post photos as I go. Between the holidays, kids, work, life, I have only a small amount of time each day (or none at all) so I'm just trying to enjoy the process and do a little each day.
NOTE - I read a recent thread on the theory that silpoly (low stretch) won't require cat cuts. I am new to this world and went with cat cuts w/o even considering. I'm sure this isn't my last tarp. Also cat cuts cut grams right??!
Also I am sewing and gluing my reinforcements, but my glue (liquid nail 100% silicone adhesive) isn't doing so great. I am sewing them as well, so whatever happens happens. This is my local (car/boat/notwalkingveryfar) tarp so it's ok if it's not perfect.
Below are my pics of my progress thus far and the materials I've used.
Borrowed plans from Sunkmail (thread is here)
