I've had a sewing machine for about 2 weeks and I just made an UQ using 5oz Climashield Apex. Thanks to a lot of pics, suggestions, etc on this forum I was able to knock this out with no problems at all.
2 yards climashield
4 yards 1.1oz ripstop
4 strips of black ripstop for the channels
I did the "inside-out" method which gave me nice edges... just had to stitch up the foot area where I flipped it right-side-out.
Finished size is about 72" long and 55" wide.
