Before Christmas (when I still had contact with my sewing machine), I made a little Itty Bitty sleeping bag for Emersyn's BFF (and her Bitty Baby). Em has been bugging me to make one for her dollies, so I thought I better go back to my pictures and write down what I did so that I do not have to re-invent the wheel when I decide to be a good mommy and make her one.
SOOO here is a SUPER quick rundown of what I did. BTW...this would be GREAT for a kid's sleeping bag too, you would just need to increase the length of the fabric to fit your kiddo!!
I started with 3/4 yards of two coordinating fabrics. I could have made this smaller, but 3/4 is the cuts that I had, so I just went simple and left it. I also used selvage to selvage and didn't cut, but you could make it much smaller if you wanted to use less fabric. Next I used spray adhasive to make a quilt sandwich. SOOO fabric--batting---fabric. There are lots of online tutorials for that if you are not a quilter.
I used two pieces of bias tape (ribbon would work better) to make straps. I just sewed BOTH pieces to ONE of the top edges of the bag about 1/4 of the way in from the edge.
ALLL ready for a slumber party!!!
Then you can just fold it up and take it along....just like a BIG GIRL sleeping bag.
