The only challenges I had were - not sure how I came up 3 inches short on the hammock, obviously a measuring error on my part. Also on the tarp I put the reinforcements up to the edge and didn't leave room for the hem. That made it way harder to finish those areas. If I had looked closely at the pictures I would have seen the space. So again in my fault. Plus it was midnight, I was tired and should have taken a break and came back in the AM. But in all honesty everything really went smoothly. That being said, if you are reading this and planning on making a UL tarp make sure you leave space for the hems at the reinforcements!
One more tip - I decided I wanted to cut my own fabric so I ordered the Hex UL Tarp Kit and decided to also get the cat curve pattern. If I were to do it again or when I do a winter tarp, I would order the pre-cut tarp instead. Might as well simplify things!
