I’ve made them in the past. Just get a 3 or 4 wire cable from
a hardware store (sold by the foot) and put a plug at each
end. Gauge is up to you, and I’m no expert, but 12ga 3 or
4 wire cable is probably adequate.

There are enough different configurations for 220 volt plugs
that extension cords already fitted with plugs don’t seem to
be an off-the-shelf thing.
