I'm about to order some materials for a couple of DIY tarps I'm planning and while looking have seen a number of tarps with grosgrain Edging . Now I'm wondering if I should do the same?
Presumably it will make the edges more durable, but it will add extra weight, I would like peoples opinion as to whether it is worth it.
Also, Sil stretches when wet??? (I have no experience with sil but I'm pretty sure I've read that) So... does the grosgrain effect that and will I have floppy material that wont go any tighter because the grosgrain doesn't stretch?
Any other pros/cons to having a grosgrain edging vs a rolled hem or any other ingenious trick/technique people have used?
Thanks in Advance for your help and answers.
