Steps 1-21. Cut 157 inches of blue cotton canvas into two 31-by-46-inch pieces (center panels) and two 47 1/2-by-46-inch pieces (end panels).
2. Fold under 1 1/2 inches on both long sides of each center panel, and press flat with an iron. With chalk, draw a line 1/2 inch from the edge along the folded sides, and make a dot every 3 inches. Repeat on 1 short end of each end panel. Affix eyelets at marks.

Step 4Arrange panels side by side, eyelets aligned. Lace panels with 7 yards of red acrylic cord divided into 3 equal portions, beginning and ending with a half-knot. To prevent cords from unraveling, bind ends with clear adhesive tape.
