Type of item: Clothing
Style: Funky, Cute
Cotton and knit fabrics, bias tape, zip, press studs, tons of patience.
What was your inspiration?
My Little Monkey is my inspiration :) This sleeping bag was her Christmas present. I just loved the safari print, so believe it or not, I paid full price for this fabric! My LM seems to enjoy the Spot the Animal game we play using her sleeping bag - we point at the animals, make silly noises and hilarious movements :)
What are you most proud of?
How I managed to make the front look like there is no zip at all :) This is also my first attempt at making something with lining.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I am so new to this I can't really give any advice worth listening to. I know next time I make LM anything using knits I will be more careful to not stretch it while transferring a pattern onto a fabric or cutting it. Oh well, she doesn't know the arm holes were not supposed to be this big hahaha Shhh don't tell her ;)
