How to sew camouflage
You will need
  • - Cape or army form 1-2 sizes larger;
  • - fishing net;
  • fabric elastic band;
  • - linen thread;
  • tape and pieces of burlap.
First of all, decide what you need camouflage: a suit or wraps. If you want a ghillie suit, buy the form of dense tissue 1-2 sizes bigger than yours and sew it to the hood. If you prefer a camouflage Cape, the Cape.
Field masking (back, sides, hood, shoulders, outer part of the arms, the back and sides of the feet, and the Cape - the entire outer surface) sewn nylon fishing net with a cell of about 3 cm Chain stitched nylon thread (to avoid chafing) on the perimeter and in the middle in several places. In places masking need to sew the necessary number of rubber bands to mount leaves, twigs, etc.
Yarns, ribbons and pieces of burlap about 40 cm long color dyes for natural fabrics in mainly grey, brown, green and mixtures thereof. The color and tone of the suit is selected individually (if autumn is more yellow and brown shades, if the summer - more green, etc.)
Weave the thread into the cells sewn network (fold yarn in half, loop the thread under the cell in this loop passes the remaining tail of yarn, after which the noose just tightened). In one cell do not need to weave more than four threads. The netting is held away from the lower part of the camouflage to the top. In one cell it is possible to weave threads of the same color and you can combine strands of different colors. Weaves strands of 1-2 cells, otherwise the camouflage is too thick.
Now sew on the camouflage colored pieces or strips of fabric or burlap. In the shoulders, back and rear side (or evenly over the entire surface of the Cape) are sewn large pieces of fabric; on the sides, hood and outside of the hands of the smaller pieces. The front of the jacket and pants are sewn two pieces of fabric (to leave some space when you climb).
Keep the camouflage in the water and do not fall under the rain, it gets wet, it loses volume and becomes very heavy.

Keep away from open fire and use care with lighters, cigarettes, etc., because the suit is made of flammable materials.

Everyone makes camouflage to suit your needs, so feel free to add something of their own, for example, if you expect a lot of crawling - tab on the elbows and knees crisp, sturdy fabric, if you want it for you more comfortable sitting vsheyte in the right places, bands, etc.
