    Please forgive me, for I have sinned... Hex tarp horror

    Yeah I am being a bit dramatic.

    Had a camping buddy of mine ask me to make a tarp for him, with his alma mater colors . . . Clemson. He doesn't know it yet, but this is what he his getting. I didn't show it but the corner reinforcements are the opposite colors of what they are on. Looks pretty nice.

    Slightly larger than the MacCat deluxe and comes in at 11.2 ounces.

    Enjoy...

    Did you sew the two colored fabrics together before making the catenary curve cuts?

    Yes sir. Seemed the only way that makes sense Flat felled the two together and then layer my stencil out for the shaping. I have access to a wide format printer, so I print the pattern, do some taping and rock out.

    That is blaze orange on top, he is going to go blind. lol

    Little know fact about eyes. If you are in a room for a long period of time that is cast in a color, I forget how long but it is a matter of minutes, your eyes will adjust and cancel out that tone.

    No not for rcracin24. This is a guy I am slowly converting over to the dark side. He brings a hammock to lounge in and periodically sleep in. He always brings the tent thought
