Awesome Steve, can you take a pic of the template to see shape?
.... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.
This fits the bill for a first DIY sewing project. Starting with the tarp might be over ambitious
Stupid question about the diagram. What side is the head? 46" or 58"
Adjust your length according to your height. I'm 5' 8" and it comes up over my nose so I have plenty to tuck in over and around my shoulders. Some folks like to have more coverage, some like less...
IIRC I ended up cutting about 4 to 5 inches off the overall length of the PL (a little from each end)..
What size shoes do you wear? I'm assuming my size 13 feet will require a wider bottom
Thanks for getting back to.me
