Mint and Strawberry Grobag! Burda #9640

My blog is:

I’m a DIY Maternity gal and making lots of things for my new little girl! (Still in tummy at present!)

This pattern is the “Baby Sleeping Bag Burda Sewing Pattern No. 9640”

or a ‘Grobag’ as they are more fashionably called!

I love the idea of this piece of clothing, wrapped up but with room to move- whilst looking gorgeous. PLUS… they are really yummy mummy fashionable and you can be spending £45 on a top-end one… frugal thoughts enter my head and I have to out-do in quality and price!

My blog:

I’m try to DIY all of my Maternity and a high proportion of Bambina clothing

I made the piece out of quilt-weight cotton, rather than the suggested sweater-weight knit. Instead I used a cotton interlining to make the weight and the tog of the grobag much warmer. To be honest, this looks like it’s ready to eat on a summers day yet warm enough for a March snow drift!

I loved the underlap detail. No pinching necks and skin here… doesn’t bear thinking about, does it?! Anyway, its a lovely detail. I used the lining fabric to get even more pink (dark pink) in there. Underlaps like this are basted onto the zipper fabric and then permanently attached when the lining is applied.

Material Notes

I used quilt-weight cotton

    Nice Job! I made a couple for my son using a similar Burda pattern. One had quilt batting in the middle and the other did not . It was perfect for chilly nights.
