Step 1: MATERIALS LIST
- Vinyl Shower Curtains
- Blankets (with or without sleeves)
- Duct Tape

Pile on blankets and/or slankets.
The more layers, the warmer you’ll be.
Get fancy by sewing them together (see Step 4 for seam suggestions).
Step 3: DRY LAYER
Duct tape shower curtains together.
Avoid liners (they tear easily) and fabric shower curtains (not waterproof).
Overlap your seams for the best coverage (see suggested seam locations in next step).
Step 4: SUGGESTED SEAM LOCATIONS
Leave holes for your head and arms, poncho-style.
These seam recommendations will give you a cowl, built-in scarf, and reinforced shoulders.
