So I finally finished my tarp! 126" ridgeline with cat? cuts.
I have proof:
Sil from DIY Gear Supply
Cut and folded 4 times to make the side cuts identical
Then, the hybrid french seam. I rolled both sides to make it easier to pass the material through the machine:
Next was the hem around the tarp (daaamn that took forever!) plus 6 corner reinforcements along the way:
After that I put the tie outs with D rings:
"test hang" in my living room to measure the location for the middle pull outs:
Boy were these a big PITA to sew:
And the finished product:
And, of course, after I already made my hammock, underquilt and tarp I found out that my machine came with a hem foot that makes these in no time:
Next weekend I'll be making a down TQ! Already ordered my pillows, need to order more nylon from DIY Gear supply...
EDIT: Do you guys coat the seams on the ridgeline and side tieouts with something? Will they "leak" if I dont?
