    Just compleated this one this a.m. I had more like thirty hours then twenty I estimated. If it was machine sewn it would have been five maybe.
    I don’t get my breech clot in a wad over machine sewing as you have to look too close to tell the difference.
    I would encourage any one to try making clothing of any type, it ain’t hard at all. In the case of a blanket vest I think it could be done a lot quicker then this one.

    Well done, tenngun! You are a "Cannon" of this Forum in more ways than one.
    It would have taken me that long just to sew on all those buttons, and that's not counting the trip to the doctor for the needle extraction and transfusion. ;)

    Unless you mess up...er....intentionally wash a wool blanket in a machine, which then really tightens up the fabric, and since the blanket is too small now for real use as a blanket, you turn it into a winter vest...tight weave working well against the wind....I've "heard" such sometimes works.....:oops:
