Diy - Sleeping Bag aka Infant Sleepsack





My son kicks his blankets off ALWAYS. So when we go camping or even for just at night it is nice to know I now have something to stay on him no-matter what... and the tough part about having no mobility... solved.

I made it open at the bottom with velcro for a few reasons.
  • For diaper changing
  • So his legs can slide out if he wants to move around
  • and for convenience
So here is my simple tutorial. Promise its So easy!!


Materials Needed:
  • 2 Fabrics (amount depends on child. I used one yard of each for this project) also pay attention to weight of fabrics.... for warmer pick a flannel for lighter probably dont pick minky.
  • 4 Buttons
  • Velcro
  • Double sided Iron-on adhesive (for owl)
  • pants shirt and socks from child for measurments


Lets get started.


Step 1.
I like to use Tissue Paper to make a pattern. So lay out Tissue Paper on hard Surface (use 2 sheets if you need and tape together) and lay out shirt, pants and socks for length Measurment and trace. I added about 3 or 4 inches length so it can grow with him for a little while.

Trace wide leaving room for seam allowance. 1/4 inch- 1/2
Add straps to tracing at the top.



Step 2
Cut on fold of fabric to skip sewing one side. Repeat with lining Fabric.


Step 3
Place face sides together and pin.
  • dont forget to leave a pull through opening for turning right side out
  • The arrow at top shows where to cut for arm opening
Sew .

Step 4 -
Again turn Right sides together (brown) and sew around edges.
**MAKE SURE TO LEAVE AN ARM OPENING AND A BOTTOM OPENING **


Step 5 - Sew in velcro at shoulder straps and bottom of bag.

And its embellishments from here! Add any shape you want and covor velcro with buttons if its your forte! Happy sewing!!

  5. One time they end up frіends, they ωill
    be expecting familiarity, but not faг too a great deal till then.

    Thіs Floridа tenting site iѕ perfеct for a housеhold on a рrісe rangе basically
    because it is moderatеly priced for the Orlando regiοn anԁ howeveг it is neаr to all thе primаrу attractiοns like Disney.
