Well, two years ago I made my nephew, Zander, a sleeping bag for his birthday and she immediately knew she needed one too. I learned a few tricks while making his and I figured that if I could make one, I could make two. So we went shopping for fabric and this is what she picked:
In true Korri fashion: Frozen, Tinkerbell and Disney princesses! Great. Let's do it.
Well, I made Zander's a week or so before Mac was born. You know what? It is nearly impossible to sew when you have anybody under the age of three in your house. Lesson learned! SO...I knew this was one project I wanted to do while the kids were at Memere's this week: make Korri's freaking sleeping bag!
And in true Stacy fashion, nothing goes according to plan. I seriously thought I'd have this sucker done in less than two days. I mean, I even had to YouTube how to wind my bobbin!! Well, today, day five, after at least FOUR trips to Walmart or Joann's, I finally FINISHED it! It isn't perfect and I learned even more lessons with this one but it is done and I can't wait to give it to her! I even added the straps and pillow by myself without any directions (thanks, Miss. Kluver and 7th grade Home Ec!). I think/hope she is going to LOVE it. Here are some final pics:
And while I thought the patterns and colors were going to be too much, it somehow works...for a five year old girl, anyway! Now I want to make a little smaller version for Mac. Ha...he'll probably get his when he's five, too! Unless any takers on having my three beautiful children for five days before then?!?! LOL
Now to do one more project before they come back...in THREE HOURS! Better get to it. Pictures on that later, if I actually get it done!!
