Let It Rain Cloakware Xenon Tarp
Overview: DIY tarp using Dutchware Print2Fabric hex tarp in Cloakware pattern – special order
Steps: Cut the pattern with some minor screw ups which forced me to change it to a cat cut tarp. Sewed the ridgeline together using a flat felled French Seam, then stitched the entire tarp perimeter with a rolled hem, followed by stitching the reinforced corners for the tie outs & finished with double stitching the tie outs on each corner & both ends of the ridgeline. Approximately 9 oz. total weight when done. Here a write up of the project on Hammock Forums… First Real DIY Project – Let It Rain
Materials: Xenon Sil .9 fabric with 300D fabric reinforcements for the corner & ridgeline tie outs, sewn together with olive & orange colored Guttermann 70 thread… olive on the top side of the tarp & orange on the bottom.
