    DIY Tarp Designs

    I'm sorry for such a long delay, but I've finally gotten a spare moment to put a few of Backwoods Daydreamer's old tarp designs into single-sheet DIY Guide formats. We've got the Three Season Hex design, the Winter Dream, and the UL Asym.

    You can also find them online here: Tarps.

    Great work! The illustrations will help many I'm sure, I like the cat cut technique, it is what I used and makes them less intimidating compared to "doing the math"
    I may have to make a winter tarp now

    Thanks Scott. Now I'm wondering if I ordered 8 yards or 9 yards of silnylon the last time.

    Thanks for getting this up. Could have used it a few months ago... but it will make putting my hex tarp together a lot easier.
