And so it begins!!! Lol
So it's a little crooked, some of mine are too I think it is in part that I didn't want to waste some strange shaped scraps and in part to my abilities as an operator of a thread injector.
Haha, I'm about to start in the same way... A DIY sewn stake bag!
Good luck, and have fun!
Looks GREAT! welcome to the DIY club.
Can't tell for sure, but make sure you either do a full rolled hem or melt the edges of the ripstop or it will start to unravel annoying fibers. Welcome to the addiction. So far I've made more stuff sacks than I can count, a tarp, top quilt, 4 pairs of wristies, pack cover/gear hammock/chair, working on a winter tarp now. I can stop any time I want to .....really I can.
Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. ... To live only for some future goal is shallow. Itís the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top. Here's where things grow.

soon you'll be like all the rest of us. . . looking for that next fix . . . er project to fix up I mean. . . now where did my tape measure go . . .
Welcome to the club. I started keeping a list of the projects I wanted to make. For each one I finish, I seem to add at least 4 to the list.
So far I've made an Under Quilt, A pair of Srgt. Rock's UL UCR's, a pair of Whoopie Slings, An Adjustable Structural Ridge line, a set of Pot Cozies, a couple of Ridge Line organziers, a Turtledog stand, a stove windscreen.
Still on the list:
A 3 season Sil Tarp
A UL Hammock from 1.5 Ripstop
A Top Quilt
A V-8 turbo Alchohol Stove
A Pot Stand
A Winter Sil Tarp
A Hammock Bug Net
A Winter Sock
A summer Under Quilt
A Summer Top Quilt
A Asym UL Tarp
and I'm pretty sure by the time I get done with that I'll have a new list that is twice as long as this one.
