    My DIY 4 season tarp

    Not my first sewing project but my first attempt at a large tarp.
    1.1 silnylon with a 3/4 in nylon cross grain cat cut ridge line. Hex design with doors on both ends.

    Looks great!

    What dimensions did you use? I'm curious because mine doesn't get that close to the ground (wish it did.)

    What design did you use? I made the Backwoods Daydreamer Winter Tarp, but I need to make another and am interested in other designs. Although, I will mention that I LOVE the Winter Tarp!

    I used the Daydreamer design with some alterations. I cat cut the ridge line and used 3/4" nylon cross grain to bind and attached the d rings to the binding on each end. All the tension is on the webbing.

    Very nicely done! I like it...a lot! Maybe I will try a cat cut ridge on my next one.
