Description

I’ve created a sleeping bag for our 18 month old little boy. I created a pattern from an old, worn Grobag. I upcycled two pillowslips, used some left over bamboo wadding, two practically unused bassinettte sheets and one separating red zip.

It’s come up so beautifully! It’s so nice and snug for our little man. The bamboo is so soft – just lovely. I’m really proud of it. Mostly because I reused old (in good condition) items and made something new, without buying/consuming ‘more stuff’.

See more refashioning that I’ve done on my blog: inspired imagination.blogspot.com

Material Notes

Two cotton european pillowslips, some bamboo wadding, two bamboo bassinette flat sheets and one (new) red separating zip.
