    I had promised that I would post the directions to this but I can't seem to find them right now.

    No problem...... it was the simplest thing to put together. I took some measurements and I'll just explain how it goes together.

    First, pet screen usually comes in black and you can get it anywhere they sell window screen. You can also find it online in many different colors. You will also need a lot of double fold bias tape. The original directions called for about 2 1/2 yds. of material to make your own bias tape.

    The main portion of the pet screen needs to be cut into a 24" x 28" piece. You will attach everything else to this.

    The 2 larger pockets on the left are 10" x 12" and 10" x 22". On the top of both pieces, attach a length of bias tape. Lay the smaller piece on top of the larger piece matching the BOTTOM and RIGHT edges. Apply a length of bias tape to the RIGHT edge of BOTH pieces. They will now be attached to each other on this side. You will then line these 2 pieces up on the larger piece on the LEFTand BOTTOM sides and apply another length of the bias tape around all 3 pieces on the LEFT side only. The 2 larger pockets are now attached to the larger piece on the LEFT side only. You will need to sew the right side of the 2 smaller pieces to the larger main piece along the stitching line of the bias tape.

    For the smaller pieces, the 3 main pieces on the right side are from top to bottom: 12" x 8", 14" x 10" and 12" x 6". You can attach smaller pockets to them either as separate pieces(encasing them in bias tape and then attaching to one of these pieces) or in the same manner as the 2 larger pockets on the left. You will then sew these pieces to the larger main piece.

    After everything has been attached, finish any of the remaining unfinished sides of the larger main piece with the bias tape.

    To hang it, roll over a section of the top back on itself and sew it in place. Get a large dowel, mine was about 2", put it through the pocket you just made, and there you have it.

    If anyone has any questions, just give me a holler

    You can make the pockets on the right hand side any size you want, based on your needs, as long as they fit in the space available

    Thank you for this! It looks very easy and fast - and useful!

    I just have one question - I've not worked with pet screening before. Is there any problem in sewing the bias tape with the regular sewing machines? Any specific size needle you used?

    Thanks again for a great tutorial.

    I used no special needles or threads.

    It's very easy to work with, and I suppose you could use a needle made for going through thicker fabrics.

    Can you do this with canvas/duckcloth? I've got some bright don't-shoot-me-while-hunting-in-the-woods orange and I have no practical use for it; however I would be willing to use it for this! I can even double up for the large back panel if I need to, and stitch rows for stiffness and reinforcement.

    I don't see why you couldn't.

    You wouldn't have to worry about hemming the clothe if you still use the bias tape around everything.
