I actually had this finished a few weeks ago but couldn't get the time to snap some pic/videos. Anyway, here it is. I ended up making a 2 part video of how to make one - link is on my website.

You did a great job on the seams! I'm not a tarp fan but it does give me some ideas.

Actually, my mom is the one who actually sewed the edges. I just cut the material and bonded the reinforcement points. I haven't had it out in the field yet, but if it holds up well, I'm gonna start thinking about other shelter options using the same techniques.
