Are you saying to sew thE dart spot together?
Yeah. You could change the distance between the tips of the dart to make it flatter or steeper (more like a circus tent).
It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

I should do that just to blow people's minds. I do weird stuff all the time at our family weeklong camp out.
This is what Gumbo and I use to put over two hammocks side-by-side with lots of room. At 12x14 I call it the B.A.T. tarp - which stands for Big A$$ Tarp. We are pretty happy with it. Check it out. YMMV, etc.
Shop around you may find it cheaper.
So many trees, so little time...
We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
His friends and merry men are we;
And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
We burrow in the cypress tree.
The turfy hammock is our bed,
Our home is in the red deer's den,
Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
For we are wild and hunted men.
Hey take a look a the Kelty Noah tarp 12X12. its around $69 at REI. You might get away with using 2 of them and not have to sew anything. All depends on how you rig it. When not using as a tarp you can sail the 7 seas. Just took a look at the Kelty site and they also have a 16x16 as well weighs about 4lbs.

this tarp is HUGE and light. I bought this, not realizing how big it is, have actually thought about getting it cut inhalf to make two tarps but can't quite bring myself to do it. When I do use it (car camping ONLY) I usually wind up folding it in half. Have I mentioned that it is HUGE? I'm sure REI (your version of MEC) has something similar...
