Jump over to HammockForums.net. There are several articles on making cat cut tarps and I think Ed Speers has an article on his website for making a rectangle shaped one.

Yes Ed Speers does have some very detailed instructions on how to make a cat cut tarp. He also has some other ideas about how to make some other tarps too. I looked at it yesterday and it's a really great site to get information from...sabre11004 goodjob

A rectangular shape works really good for a tarp. You can buy one of the shelf, or sew one out of special material.I think a tarp and an inside woodstove is the ideal 4 season outfit.

Have a look here.

Thanks for all for the leads. Lots of information in those places. I am looking to make a vestibule for a bivy/tent cross (Northstar Bivy) I picked up from Cabela's in the early 90s. It is lightweight and I have 3 of them, if I can rig up a vestibule for wet weather hunkering, it will work great for my desired re-entry into backpacking soon.
