How to sew a toddler’s sleeping bag

   I promised it, well, here it is! In a previous post I talked about how I did sew a toddler’s jacket from an old sleeping bag I had. Well, I used the remaining fabric to sew a small sleeping bag for my toddler. I wanted the sleeping bag to have sleeves, as my son is not used to being bundled up anymore. Since as far as I know no such pattern exists (maybe I should make one), I freehanded the pattern using a vest as a reference point. Here’s how I did it.

Okay, if you’ve been following me lately you’ll notice I was quiet from the Pinterest/Facebook/blogging scene in the past week.  Well, I’ve been a busy bee!  After our camping trip I had to take a few days to recover from the exhaustion of organizing it all and then I started working on another project.   In one of the lasts posts I talked about how we did go camping with our one year old and how I had to quickly sew a jacket for my son.  I had been looking for a light jacket for my toddler for ages but still couldn’t find any in the multiple stores I shopped at. With the camping trip coming up I found myself short of toddler sized cool weather clothes and I wanted to find a quick solution.
