    I love it, MAD! Thanks for showing that you can get adequate coverage from just a roll-width. I've got a lot of 66in grey 1.1 sil to work with so this is going to the top of my projects list!

    Could you explain this to me a little more? I can't picture it and I would like to try and make one. Thanks

    Sure, simply start with a sheet of nylon 66" wide by 120" long.
    Cut off a triangle from each corner that is 33" by 33".
    Now you will have a 6 sided piece of material with straight edges.
    Then, measure and mark a catenary curve along each edge and cut.
    Next, double roll the edges and sew all the way around.
    Finally, add re-enforcements at all corners.
    Done deal!
