    Tarp Dimensions?

    So I have materials set out before me and about to embark on the making of a DIY tarp. I want a good sized one with doors on each end. I'm 5' tall, and would prefer the tarp tall enough for me to stand beneath it. Any suggestions on dimensions that I should use. Thanks.

    Long enough to cover your hammock end to end. Around 10 1/2' to 11'.
    Sides are generally around 4' each.
    Here are good directions.....http://www.hammockforums.net/index.php?page=blackcat

    Well, my boyfriend ended up making one, but I'm thinking of going in a little bit of a different direction than he did. I've got this brilliant image in my head, I just can't seem to be able to figure out to do it and it be functional as well as good looking.
