I am going to buy the canvas for the new tent tomorrow.
Its a little last minute, but thought I’d let you decided on what color I should make the tent out of.
The most common color for this tent was white with blue or red designs on the outside. There are several images of these tents in blue, yellow, tan, and red. The place I am buying the canvas from is Fabric Time in Vancouver has blue, white, and red canvas listed on their website. I think all three would look awesome and as per normal I am having a hard time making up my mind. I also predict that I will own this tent (as per normal) less than a year, and a popular choice of color might make dumping later on easier.
Won’t you help an indecisive girl out.
Best color picture showing blue and red disked bell (awning this time) I could find.
**also ** in other tent news…. Since my house sitting gig has payed me in advance, I think I will also buy enough black canvas for an Ouled Naïl style Bedouin tent (The walls and roof are all one piece, and the strapping are on the inside of the roof.
***update*** The people have spoken. As of this morning there are over 50% of respondents calling for the white tent. Red put up a good fight, but I think the colorized light inside the tent was the straw…camel…something. The other thing is I will not be making this tent yet. I was up all night rereading my notes doing the math over and over again….and something is bugging me, and I am not quite sure what it is. With the sense of “wrongness” playing in the back of my head, I think I will move on to the easier to make Bedouin Ouled Nail tent. I will continue to try to figure out what the lizard brain is trying to tell me about my little timurid tent.
