Summerweight fabric - easy way to make pole pockets? Empty Summerweight fabric - easy way to make pole pockets?

Post  otmg 5/1/2018, 4:38 pm

Hi folks!  I have summerweight fabric to put over my hoops, now that it is in the 80s and my lettuce is wilting.  I'm tired of anchoring that fabric with bricks/miscellaneous rocks and having to shift all that every time I want to take off or on the fabric.  I have tried garden staples and they too are a pain. Need to save my back.

My solution would be to make horizontal pockets (like rod pockets on curtains) on 2 sides of the fabric, then insert bamboo or other kind of poles.  Is there an easy non-sew way of making those pockets? Otherwise I would have to hand-sew the stuff.  I thought of using duct tape, but I'd bet tape would just deteriorate eventually.  Thanks in advance for any advice you might have.

Thank you Turan!  Are they cut-up pieces of PVC pipe, or something else? Will keep that in mind.  I still would like some ideas about making rod pockets tho - anyone?

I believe the purchased ones are from PVC pipe.  I made a bunch from that black irrigation tubing.  I cut 4-5" lengths and then slit up one side. It works reasonably well.
