Alright, my first sewing project since 8th grade home economics was a DIY nylon tarp I made last winter. I was very ambitious and decided I was going to try cat cuts on the sides and ridgeline. The end result was adequate but the ridgeline angles sharply from the attachment points to a flat section in the middle. I assume that the reason for this odd shape is that there is to much curve in the ridge line. Looking at other tarps it seems that the cat cut in the ridge is either very light or nonexistent.
So the question is should a person even bother with the cat cut on the ridge on the next tarp?
I have very little experience with tarps. Prior to hanging I slept in tents (don't tell anyone) and I thought tarps were for gram weenies living in areas with no bugs.
