Sewing Stories ~ Baby Sleeping Bag

My best friend had her second Baby earlier this year. For her first child, I made a patchwork cot quilt. After having my son six months later, and being given a cot quilt which we didn't really use, I wondered how much she'd used hers.

We found the baby sleeping bags really useful so I decided to make one for her second baby. After looking on the internet for ideas and patterns, I decided to just use a sleeping bag that I'd kept, as a template.

My son helped me choose the fabric - slightly tricky as we didn't know if the baby was going to be a boy or a girl. The patterned fabric is cotton and the lining is a lovely soft brushed cotton. I was going to use some quilting batting in between but I didn't want the baby to overheat.

I laid the sleeping bag I had onto paper and traced the shape out. I used binding all the way round to join the front and back of each piece, then machine stitched on the binding join to join the front of the bag to the back, with a zip inserted in the side and poppers on the shoulders to get baby in and out.

With the left over material I made a simple square blanket for big sister to use with her dolls. The baby is a boy :-)
