Enjoy the day
Great plans! Just finished a set for my superfly and they work great! I made the large end 1'' smaller. Thanks for the info.....
Ha ha... Mine look almost exactly like the originals pictured here--but they fit too loosely on my 11' rectangular 1.5oz sil tarp. I also did the obvious: ended up with one pocket inside the tube.
Big deal--that longitudinal cut gives me another piece of bugnet for another set. I can always use extras. Excellent plans--and add a strip of zip tie inside the double seam on the big end. It's the only way to go.
EDIT: Correction--luckily, the problem was my idiocy, and not the snakeskins. I strung up my tarp properly and they overlap just about 8"--per-fick! Thank you Snake Skin Guy!

I love some snakeskins .... I have two pair but am making a few of these as well........
Thankee headchange4u !!!!!
I am going to start on some skins tonight... a pair for my OES standard and one for my BigMamajamba, should I stick with the Original Post measurements, or a bit smaller?
I made two sets, one for the OES standard and one for the BMJB, and they turned out really good. With some leftover no-see-um I made a small stuffsack for my Evernew pot, complete with drawstring. I also made a Bug head net for my daughter, copying one that I already have. This is fun!!!!!
I made a set from your pattern. Variation with seams on outside (french seam). They fit great. I purchased my No-see-um at a local Hancock fabrics.
So how do these skins pack they look kind of bulky any pics of what they look like compressed
The pattern can be adjusted easily for different sized tarps as well.
