Toddler Sleeping bag and Pyjama's

My son has slept in a sleeping bag since he was about 4 months old. We have bags for cold winter, bags for hot summer and a few in between but he seems to never stop growing and we needed a new in between one for the cool summer nights in Toowoomba. Instead of heading down to David Jones for a $70 sleeping bag, I decided to make my own.

Using another sleeping bag that fit him, I simply traced out the pattern and copied it as well as I could... which I think is really a rather good copy and I could go into sleeping bag business. Or not. I used a printed flannelette for the outer layer and a cotton lining to keep him just a bit warmer. The finished product fits great and is doing a good job.

Seeing as I bought too much for the flannelette fabric, I also decided to make him some new winter
pyjama's. I happened to have the perfect boy's pyjama pattern in the correct size in my lifeline book fest stash of old patterns. A very cute set of flannelette pyjamas for my boy. He was almost as excited as me!
