Planning on making a tarp with tax refund rather than buying one. I would like to hear comments and opinions.
1.3oz sil nylon. Dimensions 120x96/10x8. Obviously its a rectangle. No special cat cuts. I was thinking that since the material comes 60 inches wide that I would just have my seam on one side rather than cutting it to have the seam on top. I'm not sure how seam sealing works but I imagine after sewing it together you just coat the seam with it.. for the tie out was going to just sew on some ribbon loops for tie outs. For the ridgeline I was going to do another ribbon loop with a d ring. Tie lash it or zing to it and wrap around a tree aand tie to a dutch hook. Repeat on the other side.
Seems simple to me but I may be missing something. The suspension seems like it would be really easy as well
