    Exclamation Winter Dream

    Ok, so I am bummed that there are no winter dream tarps to be had. Now I have to resort to something so absurd that it is probably a detriment to my health: Attempt to build my own. Can any fabric be used for a prototype? It would simply be to perfect the pattern, not for actual use besides to test the fit on a nice day. The name of the tarp has been modified for my own personal enjoyment.

    Build it from urethane coated Walmart fabric. CHEAP and functional. You could sell your proto type.
    The trees are drawing me near, I've got to find out why?

    Even duct-tape can't fix stupid.

    If you ask Scott Littlefield, nicely, I am sure he would be happy to give you the pattern details of that tarp. He has provided that information (drawing) on his website and on this forum in the past.

    I also have in on authority that Scott is considering making DIY kits for his tarps. Perhaps a little more nudging and prodding and you will get what you want. ;-)



    Cheers
