    10 yards of woodland camo ordered and headed my way going to make a superfly clone with it, should be sweet!

    Now that I became a donating member it's even more confusing! Post a picture of it.

    I also thought a black and red tarp with sharp lines would look very cool I don't have the skills yet, but I want to make something like smokehouse's honeymoon suite tarp. That thing looks perfect for 2 under 1 tarp. If you have seen this tarp, it has multiple pieces of fabric, and I thought a black and red one would be pretty slick

    CountryRoads from MA:

    This would be my first tarp project. I will have to work up my courage, but I will.
    I think the black will be nice. My hammock is a 9-footer in woodland camo, so I want to make an 8 x 10 with doors, no cat cuts and with a grograin ridgeline. Not sure about all the details. Since this is my first tarp, I expect I will put a good bit of thought into it. I have decided to call it The Hillbilly Black Rhino Tarp. I hope my sewing skills will be worthy of the name.
    I will post some picks of the raw material, so that all may bask in the Argon beauty

    it might be worth thinking about adding some cat cuts to the bottom sides, they really help with keeping the tarp taunt and really aren't much harder to do than a straight seam, just use lots of pins and go slow, with a straight edge along the bottom of your tarp it's hard to get the tarp to pitch without the edges flapping a bit
