So far, I am managing my addiction to Pinterest. But this little sleeping bag was so irresitable, that I had a go at it. Now I don't quilt, and I didn't have the time or patience to buy the pattern, so I just, for the most part, guessed.
In addition to having little bags for the kids' play things, I learned three things in this process:
Hang on to fabric scraps because they might come in handy for other projects. Bucee's sleeping bag...
...was Harper's dress fifteen months ago.
Craft/sew because you enjoy it, not because you think the recipient might enjoy the fruits of your labor. When Harper put Sleeping Beauty in her brown floral and dots sleeping bag, and when Sleeping Beauty's yellow skirt showed above the covers, she said to me: "This is not right. Next time, make the covers longer because she's cold."
When pinning fabrics, pin away from the direction of your feeder, lest you be stabbed and stabbed and STABBED. Also, being stabbed by pins will make you feel very much alive. But not in a good way.
