They put the odd sized blankets on sale for around $100 every so often, that's when I buy mine.

What is the dimension of the blind frame?

Also, what color is that blanket you use ? Woodeland, desert, or leafy green?

I would hate to give you dimensions and them not work for you, so I'll tell you how I designed mine. The height was determined by me sitting on the ground drawing my bow and then adding 4" to that height. The width is the length of my bow plus 10". So you can turn your bo easily inside the blind. The length is long enough for me to draw my bow inside.

I have the woodlands blanket.

I took your design and used a version last yr at BH. I got two of the 5'x9' woodlands blankets. I zip tied them to two pieces of net fencing to make them rigged. You can shape them as needed and roll them up when transporting. I wish I had added shade cloth between the netting on ghillie. The ghillie material blends well with the stx brush

I got the material for the shade blanket at Hobby Lobby. It's kind of a thick felt, 76" wide and I think it was $4.99 a yard, and I bought 7 yards. I laid the material out, doubled up, and then cut the length. I then had it sewn along the top and back. When you slide it on it will only be a single layer of material with the top sewn piece running right down the middle of the blind.

Good luck, been slow at brushy, several guys had good deer Coke in right after shooting light last night, hoping this nasty weather gets them kicked off good.

Still pretty slow overall, I made a decision to change stands for pm hunt yesterday after sitting all day at one spot and had two shooters in daylight at the stand I left. I've been in same stand all day except for one quick walk to th truck about 11am.
Staying out all day hoping they make a return visit. My last pm hunt. A big 8 has been a regular here since he found the corn Tuesday night.

Good luck!
