I'm also waiting on some samples of 108" wide Black Tulle. If it looks as good as the 54" stuff I've been getting from Joann's, I'll order a roll. My goal is to eliminate the 60" x 24" strip from the bottom and cut the whole net out of one piece of fabric. This would also allow the option of increasing the depth of the net (weight penalty, of course) clear up to 53" or so. The other thing I'm playing with is a lightweight polyester ribbon edging. I wanna try a couple & see what kinda weight versus strength it adds to the net.
So many possible options.
