My granddaughters love playing with dolls at Mimi's house and I am always looking to add fun accessories. The dolls of course need beds and with limited storage and a few dolls to put to bed, I decided to make some sleeping bags for the dolls. Of course PINK and flowers had to be involved. Love this daisy chain trim from Expo International!
You will need:
12" x 18” craft cuts Kunin Premiumfelt™: 1 Lagoon, 1 White, 2 Candy Pink
1 1/2 yards Daisy Flower trim http://www.expointl.com
Peapod ball pom trim, 1 yard Yellow, 2 yards White, http://www.expointl.com
Fabri-tac and or Felt Glue by Beacon www.beaconadhesives.com
Scissors, ruler, pins, sewing machine and matching thread (optional)
1. Cut a piece of white felt 4" by 18" and a piece of candy pink felt 12" by 12". Fold the white piece in half lengthwise and pin to top edge of the second candy pink piece. Sew or glue.
2. Pin 18" length piece of pink to bottom of lagoon piece, 12" width. Pleat to fit. Sew in place on all three sides.
3. Fold 12" square candy pink piece in half and sew on three sides. Pin this pink piece to top of lagoon piece. Sew in place.
4. Glue white peapod trim along bottom of bag. Glue white peapod trim around top of bag. Glue yellow peapod trim across white band of bag. Glue flower trim in place. Cut separate flowers from trim. Glue randomly on the top and bottom of sleeping bag.
This sleeping bag can be made in several colors. I am making each one in a color found in the daisy chain trim. The peapod trim is super cute and the perfect size for doll trims. Next on the wish list tutus for the dolls! Being a grandmother is such fun!
