DIY PLUQ Based Yeti Clone
Ever left home without a quilt and sometime around 2:00 AM wish you had a thin layer of warmth between your hind-side and the elements?
I have two Yetis and love them. However, I live in the lower bowels of Alabama, and the shoulder seasons in my neck of the woods don't always call for the 20 degree UQ. You can, of course, move the UQ around to vent it, etc...but, I prefer not to subject my high dollar UQs to any more wear and tear than needed.
This was an easy project to do and there is actually enough material in one poncho liner to make two of these...or a double layer if that is more to your liking. Again, I was shooting for a thin, lightweight layer to use when my 20 degree Yeti is overkill.
I made the draft collars out of parachute silk and stuffed them with batting I had left over after I made my daughter a body-pillow for Christmas.
Here are the pics. The construction steps should be self explanatory. It took me just under a day to complete with lots of breaks.
Total weight is 12.5 ounces with suspension.
