    Need help sewing

    Hey all you seamsters!

    I have an issue. My beautiful bride just doesn't like hammocks. So, I bought a tent for when we go together. Said tent has a pair of very nice vestibules by either door, but for some silly reason, the ground cloth does not include ground coverage for the vestibules. I ordered it anyway in hopes of being able to figure something out. My question is: If I bought some material (what would be waterproof and suitable?) and gave the vestibule dimensions, would one of you fine folks be willing to cut, sew, and seal the seams for me? I'm just not very good with a thread injector. It being a ground cloth, it would need to be waterproof. And I would like to be able to stretch it nice and tight, so the stitching would need to be pretty resistant to pulling. If anyone might be able to help me out, please PM me and let me know your price. I thought about posting this in the WTB thread, but I thought it would get more publicity here.

    Thanks in advance!

    Most tents don't have a ground cover for the vestibule. If it were me I would just get a piece of tyvek and cut it to the shape of the vestibule. That will keep things dry enough and its durable enough to last a long time. You can also just throw it in the washing machine when it gets dirty and easily replace it when it gets worn out. You can also use it as a place to sit when hiking etc, etc.

    +1 on the Tyvek. I always carry two trash bags with me, so always used one in the vestibule of my tent.
