The weather is warming up here, so I thought I'd sew up some lightweight sleeping bags for Roman. I made them extra big so there's plenty of growing room...hopefully I'll get 2 summers out of them.

I used a sleeping bag he already uses and copied the neckline to make a pattern and added a bit of length to it.

I used a cotton print for the outside and some cotton jersey for the lining. It was also the first time I've used continuous zip which was easier than I thought it would be.

Full step by step is on my blog:

Looks great.  I love the fabric you used.

That fabric is gorgeous! I think my son needs some sleep sacs too.

I sometimes dream of glorious fabrics only to wake, run to to my stash, and realize it's time for a trip to the fabric store...
