For some time I have been eyeing the Lester River Bushcraft Boreal Shirt. It is gorgeous, just the sort of thing I’d love to wear when scouting and day hiking. Big, warm, durable, and thoughtfully designed.
The problem for me is one of finance. $267 shipped is a bit rich for my budget, at least if I want to remain on good terms with my bride and help keep the family budget afloat. But for Christmas I received a sewing machine. Now this isn’t exactly a present I boasted about among friends as they were chatting about last night’s game, but it has inspired me to take a stab at making my own crude version of a bushcraft shirt from an old, US army wool blanket that I inherited from my dad.
Stay tuned! I’ll post pictures once it has taken shape.
