Winter emergency blanket - just asking for your thoughts.
Okay, I am insanely experimental/macgiverish. I don't have a lot of money so if it sounds crazy, but plausible, I like to research to see if it's been done before and if not I go for it.
Therefore, has anybody ever tried to make their very own 0 degree sleeping bag/blanket?
I'm thinking of doing it quilt style; 1x1 squares of emergency blankets (big sheets of flexible foil) sandwiched between fleece, then something like a sheet as an outer layer over that.
My house is 115+ years old, has no insulation in the walls, and gets down to about 40* in the winter. I have a propane heater but I work part time and don't have a ton of money to spend on filling the tank every other week.
And yes, I know it won't keep my warm in 0* weather, but it might be better than the two basic blankets I have now. And as far as the fleece, sheets, and emergency blankets go: I already have all of it on hand, I just need extra thread.
