Like it, I'd love one of those made out of canvas.
That's brilliant but, sadly, way beyond my sewing skills! I'm deeply envious.
Well done indeed - VERY nice eco-contrast with these ridiculous £KKK forums...
thats brilliant!! im gonna have a go at making one!
Thanks Gents - will post up the dimensions shortly so you can make your own
Here's the dimensions - there are more bits of helpful info in the original thread
Cracking stuff. Any chance of some pics of the insides?
- Main join.
- reinforcement (if any) for where the pole slots
That is simply superb! I wish we could get that camo pattern over here in the colonies.
Very nicely done! Am I right this fabric is no longer available from their website?
Just checked and no, not on their website - still on their ebay shop though!
I love this!
Just shown the wife and she could be up for making me one of these!
Did you need any particular thread or needles in the sewing machine?
Very nice, you know what would be really good? An awning that converts to doors if needed!
I used heavy duty Gutermanns thread to be sure. It's lovely stuff!
The tarp has plenty of space for your gear and to cook under - I made a storm flap that pretty much covers all the opening and greatly increases the "porch". In use the tarp has been perfect, I'll post some more pics of it in action.
Was only pulling your leg actually. I would like to see that. I also like the offset idea, very clever, not only does it give a better access, it also gives a bigger usable space. It has a nice wide view too.
Ha, typing isn't the best for putting over sly humour I wanted to get the tarp experience with the ease of putting up the Lavvu - a great open view but with superior shelter in bad weather. It worked out really well, so I'm very much a convert to making your own gear where plausible.
Nice bit of kit!
