I decided to make something new for our new baby boy – Erik. Unfortunately he is forced to inherit almost everything from his older sister so I wanted to do something special just for him. I became a fan of this burda style sleeping bag (burda 9/ 2013, mod. 148) after I saw how the other sewers made it useful in two ways: as a blanket or as a sleeping bag. And because it can be done quickly – this is essential when you have kids. I still have to insert the press buttons which scares me because you have to make this right for the first time. You can’t make corrections after you make a hole in your garment.
It is made of: flannel, striped cotton (bought at AliExpress) and a white fleece blanket. There is a polyester stuffing inserted between the two fabrics. I also used my new bias tape maker to make some bias band to finish the blanket opening at the bottom. I also sewed small and big hearts so that the inserted stuffing would stay in place when washing the blanket.
It looks great I hope it will be useful.
