New parachute under construction.

I'll probably sound like one of those new guys who thinks they're an expert but I'm really happy with the way I came up with to lay it out.

The first time, I drew a circle and drew cords the length of the radius. Something was off a little bit and I had to play with the length of the cord to get it to fit evenly.

This time I cut an equilateral triangle 15" on a side for a pattern and ran it around a pin in the carpet and marked the corners.

From the center of one side to the opposite point is 13". Accounting for a 1/2" hem, This gives a 25" parachute.
