Toddler Sleeping Bag Mini Tutorial

The last couple of weeks have been BUSY. I feel like I've completely abandoned this blog!! I made up the excuse that nobody acutaly looks at it anyway!! I mean, not that I know of. But , I still wanna do it anyway for myself. I saw this idea here:  Happy Together  In this post, she links to where she got the idea from also...

This summer we plan on camping at least once. I couldn't imagine Gabe without his very own sleeping bag! JoAnn's had a great sale on snuggle fleece, and while I was there getting fabric for the hubby and I's pj pants,

 I saw the print I wanted for this project. My dimentions were exactly a yard. Using that yard of fleece as my pattern, I cut to the same size two old fleece throws i already had. All I did was sew all three pieces together leaving an area to turn. I did it so that my fleece print would end up on the outside, the ugly thick blanket would be hidden in between, and the soft thinner blanket would be on the inside. Nice and cuddly on a chilly summer night! After turning, I sewed around the outside perimeter about 1/2 inch in all the way around, and sewed one seam down where I wanted the bag to fold. Lastly, I added my strips of velcro instead of a zipper. WALA! There's probably a better way to do it but here's my version!!

Don't forget a little camp pillow!

Sleep tight, lil' camper...
