    I ordered 8 yards, I was adding the length of 1 side so many times in my head I forgot about the width.

    I'm curious as to what made you decide to not do cat cuts. Could you explain your reason for a straight cut winter tarp? I thought a tighter pitch could be had with cat cuts. Just askin.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    Ok... I feel better now...

    In this case I would make the tarp a basic rectangle of 10ft x 12ft. still do the 6ft tie out and the pull outs at 5ft and so on.
    I have made two tarps like this and function fine. you just have a small amount of overlap for the doors. that's what the extra foot on each side is for.
    or
    you can sew on the 1 foot door flap to the 10x12 or 10x11 tarp. you'll just need to order another yard of material.

    I didnt feel I needed to with the panel pulls, but I might put a cat cut on the bottom edge between the two tie out points.

    The 10x12 rectangle with 6' tie-outs and panel pulls seems like the best option. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks! That makes sense. Will the door bottoms then be straight or cat cut?

    Most likely straight for the door ends.

    I hope you can do pictures when you are finished with the tarp. It all sounds fine to me.

    This is similar to the bad boy I'm rocking from OES right now. Works great and no issues yet.
