The Hobo Hoodie

After seeing some of the cool stuff that is made up in Duluth, Minnesota by Empire Canvas Works,  I decided to try my hand and sewing up my own version of the Boreal Shirt.  I found some 100% Russian  wool army blankets at Fleet Farm so I bought two of them and picked up a Anorak pattern from Rocky Woods Outdoor Fabrics.  A little buckskin and a few modifications later this is what I came up with.  The weather has been so nice lately that I didn't think that I would get a chance to wear it until next fall, but good old Minnesota came through once again and I was able to wear it once this week while trying to stay warm at my son's baseball game.
