Keep in your auto a couple of drape panels with the pleats cut off, folded and stored in your auto or camping supplies. If on the road, camping or if you have to walk in wet weather, open one of the drape panels and place the rubberized side next to you to hold heat in and away to keep wet off. If you do not have any extra at home, these drapes are cheap at yard sales or thrift stores. They will help block wind when you bundle up in them.
Easier and less expensive to simply buy the material on sale (check the scrap table) at the fabric store. Either hem the ends to keep them from fraying or simply use a running stitch about an inch in for the same purpose. You could even sew a piece of contrasting binding tape all the way around for something more attractive.
