I made mine out of burlap. You used to get different colors at JoAnns Fabric or even Walmart. I basicly got a big piece I thing its 30" x 6'. I folded it then sewed up the sides until I got it to where I had arm room at the top and stopped at hip leve. I had the piece go on past the hip area until it hung down to between my hips and knees. Make it big enough to have clothes on underneath it. The arm pieces are made alittle longet than your arms about to the knuckles. I made my pieces to hang down both sides of my arms past them about 2" on eack side if you hold them stretched out on both sides of your body (like a "T") I then make another piece like my pants. You will have to try these on as your making them, I then had green,dark brown, light brown burlap. I also got dark green,light brown, dark brown yarn. First cut the burlap, cut squigglys "S" shaped, strips, elongated pieces. of each color of burlap. This will be put on the oustide of the suite. I put the strips on with the yarn.I double stitched and double knotted it. Also have yarn pieces about 10 inches long, these are put through the suit and folded the a knot is tied. This is partly for show and to tie foliage to that will imitate your surrounding foliage you will be hunting in. I have a pair of levis with a padded area on front of the legs, and a heavy levi type shirt. This is to go under the suit. The arms are held on my arm with velcro sewed onto black stretch fabric. They hold good.
As you make the suit make everything overlap and on arms hang down. While making the suit I was outside, because it's going to have dust bunnies and stray strings comeing off it bad. I got two plastic hangers,taped them together and hung the suit off it while making it.
While it's done definately get a bag to carry it in. Make it at least twice as big. You will need the room when you get extra pieces of foilage stuck onto it. I used a bag with a zipper top that I got on sale at walmart. But make the suit before you buy the bag.
I find it helps to spray the suit with bug spray inside and out.A day before you use it. I use the hunting friendly kind. Also don't restore the suit when it's wet, it will mold down here. I does look cool hanging on the clothes line or garden fence. People really do a double take when first seeing one.
Me and a buddy made ours at the same time on a weekend. We had fun. I got my origional plans from the survival magazine when it was selling at newstands. That was a looooonnnggg time ago.

I agree, blinds work best for the kids. its also great for all day sits. You can read mags., eat lunch, or just stand up and stretch when needed. I would pick the blind.

I have used and still use both, each has it's purpose, pending on scenerio. I have a homemade gillie suit (poncho) I took a inexpensive hooded rain poncho and hot glued varied lengths of camo burlap all over it, I bought a small pack and roll the poncho up and store in the pack, and to care it in to the woods with. I do not recommend still hunting in a gillie, it is very dangerous.
I use it often after reaching my stand or small natural blind.
I have a pop up blind that I use if I plan on staying in one area all day, or if the weather calls for heavy rain through out the day, mine is not all that big, and closes up to a little over 2' circle and slips inside a zippered pouch.
I like both, but again, each has it's purpose.

Note: the poncho can be turned inside out and used as rain gear also, and the burlap acts like an extra layer of clothing if you get a chill.

Good luck,

FDXX75
