I would like to get one of the Ti Goat Tipis but don't want to pay the big bucks. I was toying with the idea of making one on the sewing machine. The problem is I don't know the dimensions of how to cut the fabric. I have found a source of Sil Nylon that seems to be a good price. I can get factory 2nd for half the price and think it would be a good idea if I screwed up the first one I wouldn't have as much invested.
Has anyone made their own?
My Idea is to sew a piece together in about a 10x10 dimension and then use a string and marker to make a semi circle, bring the two straight edges together and sew a zipper on them. Of course I'd have to reinforce the peak for the pole with cordura or something similar and sew on tie outs around the circumference and a few half way up.
Anyone got a Ti Goat tipi and have any idea on the dimensions?
