I've started making a new "boot" for my Compact Jr, the pop up fabric tenting.
My plan is to use marine vinyl. I'll cut out rectangles for the window area and sew in pieces of screen material and also sew Velcro around the edges.
Then i'll have slightly oversize vinyl pieces with mating Velcro to place over the windows
so i'll have removable covers.
I've started with the removable covers, using heavy-duty thread and needle.
But my work looks pretty sloppy (does get a little better as I go along).
So I've been thinking of getting one of these sewing awls:
Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl
they seem to sell in the neighborhood of $15 and there are several youtube videos of them in action.
I'm wondering if anyone here has experience with them and can provide a review.
