    PW "Sanctuary" 8X10 cat tarps

    I have made 3 more cat tarps. They are ready to be shipped on Monday. The price is $60 + shipping. They are a grayish color, like the last one I sold to TheRumpus. I haven't weighed them yet but should be under 14oz. They are like the one in this picture, except the seam runs along the ridge line instead of down the sides. I will have an updated picture later of the new tarps.





    Thanks for your viewing

    Looks really good. Do yours actually measure 8 x 10 finished size? Many tarp manufacturers use the material size before hemming as the quoted size. Is the ridge seam cat cut as well or straight?

    Looks good. You might be able to take up the slack/wrinkles in the tarp if you change the position of the tie-outs and lower the ridgeline.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    8X10 is actual, material size is 8.2 X 10.2. Ridge seam is straight. Now the picture shown is the first one I did. I made some changes. So later today when my kids settle down for there nap we should be able to tie the new tarps up and take pictures of them. I think they are better than the last one.

    At the time the only place we could hang that tarp, was between the trampoline and the garage. I will make sure We tie it better. Thanks for the advice.

    Here is an updated pic of the sanctuary tarp. Sorry about the wrinkles, my experience using my trekking poles with a tarp is limited to making a porch . I know yall will tell me how to get rid of them, but I'm tired . I will take better pics in the morning when the lighting is better.





    Hope yall like it, Amanda is sewing the Cathedral after I talk with Ed tomorrow.

    Looks nice! Seems like a pretty dark gray color. Will the sanctuary be the same color?

    Actually that is the Sanctuary (8'X10') I ordered the sil for the Cathedral (10'X12') today, and it will be black, except one will be light grey (because I already have the material.)

    I also talked with Ed Speers (A great guy), and he has no problems with me making cat tarps. I told him about the cathedral and he was fine about it all. So the Cathedral will come out as soon as the sil arrives, and Amanda finishes some other sewing orders.

    Black! That will be great. Can't wait to see pics. Will there be 4 tie outs per side so it can be configured like a winter setup?
