You've certainly done well, Kevin    :toast

Here's a poncho-style that I made almost 40 years ago, from a Tartan plaid wool blanket.

Does that qualify for "hunter orange"?  :laffing

Thank you. Not bad for my first try.
 Waiting on a belt buckle from crazy crow .
 Once I have that I'll put the loops and pockets on.
 Still trying to decide on any buttons vs just a belt.

A more primitive form of "buttons and holes" are "toggles and loops", the toggles can be made from bone, antler, wood, or etc, and the loops can be fashioned from scrap pieces of leather thong, yarn, or cordage.  :bl th up
The nice thing about toggles and loops is you don't have to cut holes in your wool coat.  :)

Good point, I'll have to give that some consideration.
 Thank you.

Nice Job!
Way better then my first one. I always hated making that first cut into a new blanket. No matter how many I made the first cut was HIGH anxiety.
