Doll’s sleeping bag

At my house we spend quite a lot of time studying the American Girl catalog. A certain member of my household–who has been saving her allowance since January–was verging on the obsessive. So, I thought making something for the girls would be a welcome distraction. These sleeping bags were perfect. They capture the mini-perfection of the real thing. My daughter picked out the fabric, and even did a little of the machine sewing–thrilling! To make your very own AG sleeping bag click here: Doll’s sleeping bag. If you can sew a zipper and do some very basic quilting then you can make one of these in an hour or two. (I made matching pillows from the leftover fabric–two rectangles sewn together and filled with fluff.)

So cozy!

  1. I made these for my little granddaughters. Very cute. I used double bonded quilt batting … It saved time and worked great. I positioned the batting and the lining to make the sandwich, tucked under the edges of the lining, then pinned and stitched around the bottom and side edges. Then I pressed it and did my quilting.
