Sleeping beauty

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Finishing it! I stuffed up biiiiiiig time. First it was too wide, so I fixed that. Once it was nearly finished I realised the neckline was waaaaay too wide and could possibly big enough for an adult, not an almost 2 year old, so I had two choices - to pull it apart and start again (ouch!!) or do something... So I opted for the Do something option :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? I stuffed up at the pattern level. Make sure you double and triple measure and re-measure everything before you even touch the fabric. Oh, and even if you happen to stuff up - so what!

What you will need

  • Cotton fabrics my Babushka bought when I was about 9-10 years old :) In fact I remember begging her to buy the fabric with girls on it :) Bias tape
  • freakin long zipper
  • spare buttons to my husband's lab coat (hope he wont need them anytime soon haha)
  • stud thingo.

Q&A with Jenya

I love it that you used 10 yr old fabric, I love it that you made it for your 'little monkey' and most of all I love it because you found a way to make it work when you realized you stuffed up, well done
Jenya answered:
Thank you. I actually enjoyed the challenge to make it work. I would have been such a waste to just dump it. LM seems to be very comfy in this sleeping bag, so I am glad I did not give up when it got difficult.
