Upcycled baby sleeping bag

 

Before (Daddy’s shirt)…

 

… After (Moon Munkie’s sleeping bag!)

My favourite brand of baby sleeping bag can run to more than £30 – which is a little on the steep side, although they are very cute. During the summer weather my little one has been in need of a lighter-weight sleep bag. Having already bought 1, I was reluctant to shell out again. I thought I might make something similar. And then my husband was throwing away a lovely cotton shirt and hey presto! an idea was born. I took off the sleeves, put a dart into the placket to reduce the collar size and then stitched pretty blue bias tape around the neckline and sleeves. It looked good but still needed something to finish it off. So I put on 2 accent ribbons and a little tag (just because I learned how this weekend!) Lovely.
