I am planning on doing a DIY Winter tarp. Right now, I am thinking of 11' by 10' foot with cat cuts, similar to a scaled down version of winter dream from the Backwoods Daydreamer, Scott.
I was hoping that some of you would be able to help me with some questions.
1. What is the easiest way to seal the hems of the sil in y'all's (don't really know how to spell that word ) experience? Grosgrain? Some type of sewing?
2. Do you think I need to scale down the width since I am scaling down the length in order to get it to work well?
3. I want to do closing doors. What type of closure do y'all suggest? Velcro, Omnitape, zipper, some type of clasps?
Answers, to any/all of the questions would be awesome, as well as any general advice y'all have on making winter tarps or tarps in general (this is my first DIY tarp) would be really great.
Thanks y'all, this forum has been great to me for info an nice people in general.
