The old Singer 15-91 workhorse that has made hammocks, tarps, underquilts, và even a backpack!

Steps: 1. Determine the desired dimensions.I chose an 11 foot main ridgeline khổng lồ give good coverage over my hammocks. Total length with the integrated end “doors” is 13 feet. Width is the full 60″ width of the SilNylon, plus the triangles added to each side. If you make a standard square tarp you will likely need to join two pieces of fabric together along their long edge khổng lồ get the desired width. My HH Hex DIY tarp is 12′ long & 10′ wide. The 10′ width is from joining two 60″ wide sections with a flat felled seam lớn get the 120″ = 10′ width.

2. Measure, mark, và cut the SilNylon fabric.The old “measure twice, cut once” adage comes in handy here. Don’t ask how I know.
