Sewing some sil onto a SMD perimeter skirt myog bathtub? on 12/07/2012 15:01:23 MST Print View

I have been looking at the SMD wild oasis with the stock insect netting skirt.

Does anyone know a clever and easy way to make a bathtub effect with some 30d silnylon?



And oasis

John over at Bear Paw Design has done this for a very reasonable cost, however if it's myog I'd assume it would be decently simple making a pattern, have a 1/2 seam allowance and sewing directly to it, adding zipper along bottom so it can open all of the way up.

Sew the bathrub floor - sew up the 4 corners

Hem the edge

Sew on velcro pieces

Sew velcro pieces to netting

Maybe 1" square velcro at corners and a few places in between

Thanks, I will update this thread if I do it myself, i've never sewn but my giflfriend knows how. Seems like a fairly simple project though, with 2-3 ounce gain.
