Making an Anchor or "parking" sail

Materials consist of old sail, bungie cord and hooks to hold sail taught down and forward, jiffy grommets to reinforce sail where halyard and hooks attach, and finally four ronstan snap shackles to hold sail to backstay. I will sew black sunbrella around trim since I have some left over from lifeline cushions. I ordered everything from Sailrite.
I have all my materials except for the sewing machine. I got a singer on ebay for $40. Should be here in a year since they shipped it to hawaii via boat. Thanks for that.
