I managed to make my vest with less than a yard of duck cloth that was 59 inches wide, so I would get 2 yards for safety. And Walmart has duck cloth for $6.99 a yard, and in multiple colors. :)

Yeah I had no help from then when I got mine. My wife happened to see it.   Both of the walmarts I have seen it in it was next to the poly filling/ pillow stuffing.

HUGE fan. ;D

You could also check Michael's or Joann Fabric for duck canvas. Those two, including Hobby Lobby, seem to always have pretty similar pricing.

Your best bet is probably Walmart then. Do what I did: suffer through the absolutely horrid fabric section, buy some white duck cloth, and dye it yourself. UNLESS you like/want one of the other colors they have. When I went they had natural, white, black, blue, red, and brown.

Got 2 yards at Walmart, white.  Might just have to get a new bucket to dye all the parts that need it.

I would HIGHLY suggest getting a new, clean bucket from Home Depot or the like, because you don't want any leftover residue to affect your dyeing.

If you need tips or have questions, feel free to PM me, as I have just done what you're about to do. :)

Oxegen/flame thrower tank. That's what I'd do with it.

Well, it WAS the oxygen sensor/filter for my wife's car...

I was thinking of making them into macrobinoculars, with a regular and a "telephoto" lens.  Kind of a shame I'll have to clean them it up to mod it, has some great real weathering.
