Customer Project: Semi Elliptical Parachute

by Craig Classen

    This is the 28" parachute I  constructed using 1.1 oz calendered ripstop nylon.  I chose black and pink for good visibility in most conditions.  Eventually it will be used for hobby rocketry!

How do I make it?

I cut the 10 gores out with a hot knife, then sewed everything together using flat felled seams. Last I sewed the shroud lines on.
