    DIY - Big Mamajamba Doors

    I decided to put doors on my Big Mamajamba Warbonnet tarp. Here is what I did. My Goal was to make a simple light weight door.

    Materials:
    • 1.4 SilNylon - 2.5 Yards (Makes 4 - 2 Each End)
    • Button Hooks (8 - 2 Each)
    • Shock Cord (From an old tent pole)
    • GrosGrain Ribbon


    • The distance between Door loops on the BMJ is 60"
    • The Measurements assume a 1" hem around the entire door.
    • There is a little bit of fudge room to get the 60" just right


    Here is the design I came up with. Note, the Sides are 44" @ 90 degree angle. The Diameter is 44". This is key to this design


    Step 1: I Laid the fabric out, and measured 44" down each edge and marked it.


    Step 2: I folded the edges together at the 44" marks. Like a cone.


    Step 3: Measure 44" down the fold and mark it.


    Step 4: Measure a straight line between the 44" marks and Cut along the line.


    Here is the door laid out.


    Step 5: This is the easy part. Add a double 1/2" (1") hem around the door

    Step 6: Add mitten hooks to the long corners, and loops for shock cord to the short edges. There is a little bit of fudge room to make the doors tight between the 60" attachment points. Measure before sewing them on.

    Really nice step-by-step. I bookmarked it half way through. I have the materials, but have been putting off this project. Just waiting for you I guess. Thanks
