    Just finished two sets of skins from these plans. I changed to dimensions a bit - 6" on narrow end and 12" on wide end. I only forgot to make sure the pocket portion was on the inside on one of the four . These fit nicely over the wife's current tarp (Noah's Tarp 12). Hoping they will fit as well over the Big Mamajamba that is on order.

    Thanks for the plans!

    Ha ha... Mine look almost exactly like the originals pictured here--but they fit too loosely on my 11' rectangular 1.5oz sil tarp. I also did the obvious: ended up with one pocket inside the tube.
    Big deal--that longitudinal cut gives me another piece of bugnet for another set. I can always use extras. Excellent plans--and add a strip of zip tie inside the double seam on the big end. It's the only way to go.

    EDIT: Correction--luckily, the problem was my idiocy, and not the snakeskins. I strung up my tarp properly and they overlap just about 8"--per-fick! Thank you Snake Skin Guy!

    I am going to start on some skins tonight... a pair for my OES standard and one for my BigMamajamba, should I stick with the Original Post measurements, or a bit smaller?

    I made two

    I made two sets, one for the OES standard and one for the BMJB, and they turned out really good. With some leftover no-see-um I made a small stuffsack for my Evernew pot, complete with drawstring. I also made a Bug head net for my daughter, copying one that I already have. This is fun!!!!!

    I made a set from your pattern. Variation with seams on outside (french seam). They fit great. I purchased my No-see-um at a local Hancock fabrics.

    +1 on that. I have used these for different sized tarps. Got a bunch of mesh from Joanne's clearance rack for 50 cents a yard. I am very happy with them, they stuff easily, not bulky at all. I like the option of hanging my tarp, but not deploying it until necessary. I leave the skins on until night, rain, or whatever causes me to decide I need the tarp.

    The pattern can be adjusted easily for different sized tarps as well.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
