    Down hood

    I bought some $1.50 Rip stop nylon and Poly Fil, and a Singer sewing machine at Wally World a few days back, thinking that I would try to make some of those JRB sleaves. After getting back from church today, I decided to make a JRB down hood. OK, Poly Fil hood. Made a pattern from a hood on my jacket. Looks a little funny, but sure is warm!


    Well, I can't figure out how to get the picture off my phone ond on to this thead. Any help?

    You'll need to put the photo on your computer and then go to the upload picture.

    I figured out how to get the pics off the phone and on to the site. So, as goofy as it looks, it was very warm. Actually, too warm for 38 F. I ended up just laying it on top of my head and that did the trick.

    Yeah, you'll mumble w/ pleasure on a really cold night

    That kind of hood can surely be to warm on a lot of nights, but it sure does increase the comfort (& safety) range for such a small weight & bulk.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
