    Tarp Skins

    Just made a set of skins for my tarp using some scrap. I have a set of Snakeskins for my hammock, but it bugs me that the lines flop around. Instead of going the pocket route, I just made the skins a bit longer and added a drawsting. Tuck the suspension in and I'm done. The drawstrings also serve as a way to secure the bundle without having 8 feet of suspension flopping around. (Yep, two uses of the word flop.)

    Pics for proof...




    Big shout out to PapaSmurf @ http://www.mydiygear.com/. I used his skin pattern as a model...which sounds very odd when taken out of context.
    Dutch: Hammock is probably more weight but who wants to lay on the ground? I pee on the ground.

    Very nice. Glad the project wasn't a flop
