Looking for a couple pointers on construction of my next project which will be similar to the Six Moon Designs Haven tarp, but with slightly modified dimensions and a symmetrical shape for simplicity.
The first problem I'm facing is how to do a somewhat decent job of creating a flat-felled seam where the vestibule and ridge line meet. I don't plan on having vents here, like the SMD version. Instead, there will be a shaped, sort of 3-dimensional corner where I've found it to difficult to run the presser foot over and avoid folding the silnylon. Does anyone have experience with this?
Second, what is a good approach to tie out the vestibule? The best example I've found is with the Lunar Duo, where it looks like the cord starts at the ridgeline at the trekking pole attachment, under the vestibule to a stake out point. The vestibule is then attached to the cord somehow. I've considered just attaching the tie out directly to the bottom of the vestibule, but question if this would be too much tension to run along the zipper.
