    Last week I finished a wool shirt for Sam Gravestock and it got me thinking about making a few for people that need them .

    I have make a few to this pattern now and it works very well ,

    All sewing is done on an old Singer ,

    [​IMG]

    Some parts have to be done on a hand crank Singer ,

    [​IMG]


    So this is how it works you send me TWO blankets of your choice or a double size I then make them into a bush shirt the same pattern as Sams . ( this way you know your happy with the fabric used )

    The cost would be £58 paid via paypal before cutting and making start .

    The turn around time would be two weeks at the most if I had loads to do I would keep you informed the cost includes postage of the made up bush shirt to you .

    I would need these sizes from you in inchs ,

    Pit to pit , Neck to hem , Pit to cuff :)



    When I can get find a supply of blankets I will put up a price of a shirt made up with these .

    Anyone interested let me know on this thread and via PM .

    Thanks for looking

    being the lucky male model of the twodog boreal as I've been calling it I thought I'd add my initial impressions of this.

    first up its warm! now this may seem obvious but I'm fairly confident that I can use this without a blanket to sleep in at this time of year.
    lady of tanith and I spent the evening out on the patio the other night and due t tiredness I was cold. soon as it was on I was cosy warm.

    second. its roomy. enough space for a swannie beneath it so extra wool is available.
    third its all sewn really well. sturdy construction. clever little features like an triple inner pocket inside the handwarmer pocket and lanyard fixing points too.

    I'm well chuffed with this and I reckon its gonna be one of my permanent in my pack items of kit

    After seeing a couple of these in the flesh I can 100% say they are fantastic and at the price quoted well worth the money.

    Nice one Cliff.

    A fantastic product.

    At home in the Woods around a night fire or overseas on a Winter trip.

    Good luck mate.

    Top Job Cliff,

    My Blankets are dyed and now cutting and sewing to do for me. On leave in a bit for a week and going to get some projects I have been planning for done over the time and getting some woods time too. :)

    I agree with JohnnyBoy and Sam your work is excellent as having some of it :) and seeing the shirt in the flesh they are a top design and work outstandingly.

    You're selling yourself short mate, these are a bargain having seen what you've sewn.
