More DIY Stuff! I made a down hood with 2″ baffles and about 2oz of stuffing. Face Drawcord Design with buttons up the neck (like the Nunatak hood).
I really like the design that I found on the internet and the instructions were pretty clear. It is a great DIY if you want to slowly start getting into clothing. The patterns are pretty simple to cut.
Here is the link for the pattern:
Here are the instructions:
Here is the reference video by me. Not too much by way on instruction, but might help a bit:
