    Turning old sleeping bags into underquilts

    Since I am brand new to HF and have a ton of old ground camping equipment, I'm trying to find ways to modify and use some of what I already have to keep warm hanging free. Has anyone modified an old sleeping bag into an underquilt?

    I did. Had a 20* Marmot that made a great UQ:

    It was my first DIY project and I used an old Singer that barely survived the experience.
