In July, when the E team was ramping up to go to Pennsylvania to visit John's family, there was a possibility they'd be sleeping on the floor at a cousin's house. No problem!! With the usual dose of Ritaluck -- I found two sleeping bags at the Goodwill store.
After laundering, I personalized each bag...
|Warren's sleeping bag was a plain red child's size. I cut these designs out of the Thomas Train sheet (which has been used for SO MANY PROJECTS this last year). I just ironed them on with some Wonder Under. DONE!!|
|Lilly's was a bigger an adult size, and the camo print was not very girly. So she picked out a t-shirt, and we ironed it on the front of the bag...|
|Then, I cut 18"off the top of the bag so it would fit her better. I added the fringe to cover the new raw edge. (tip: sew a basting stitch along the line BEFORE you make the cut. The sleeping bag fabric is too slippery to stay together well.)|
|Sleeping bags: $2.38 each. Warren Train designs: 29 cents, Lilly's t-shirt: 88 cents. Napping in your new sleeping bag with your brother/sister - PRICELESS!!|
