    Great job! Looking at your measurements, you should have more coverage than the 12x12 SG tarp and with less weight.

    Those are pockets for the guylines, and places to hide condoms and stuff like that.

    Thumbs up

    Wow, great looking tarp!! I bet those extra side points will help keep things nice and stable, as well as give the extra coverage.

    Great job!

    Talking Bat Tarp Technology

    Take the guylines, tuck them into the pockets on the ends of the corners (or in the case of the ridge line velcro them to the webbing) then lock them in with hook and loop on tarp and webbing, closing the pocket with the webbing. Cool.
    I am having fun making this stuff, but I am out of fabric and ready for some couch potato time. See the photos.
