Going Camping

Meet Sammelia Sheep and Daisy the Bunny.
They like camping, too.

Stuffed animal sleeping bags were a fun little project to make with my little artists!
This was what we decided on for our first "crafting with Mommy day" last friday.
Our summer sewing/project list is here -- one down, many to go!

Doesn't she look happy?
This project was inspired by these sleeping bags at Flossie Teacakes.
I hear that she might be writing up a pattern for these -- aren't they fun?!?
The only bummer (in the girls' minds) was that these sleeping bags don't zip up.
Maybe I'll figure out how to do that for the next set of animals that plan to go camping with us.  Good thing we bought a new (larger) tent this year!


  1. Gorgeous! And is the pink binding from the Monaluna range - I've never seen it in that colourway, but (if it is) I love that our children have his and hers sleeping bags! Your bags turned out beautifully - and isn't the zip a fantastic idea? Clever beans thinking that up.

  5. So cute, I bet your kids got a big kick out of making this with you!!

  6. Oh my gosh, your kids made these with you? That is so cute! They picked out some great fabrics for the sleeping bags! :-) My hope is that at least one of my kids (or both) will at least like to try their hand at sewing one day. :-)

  7. So darned cute that I cannot stand it!

  8. So cute! Thanks for linking up to {Sew} Modern Monday and have a great week!

  9. Wow, these are soooo cute! How do you get the kids patient enough to craft with you, mine get bored after 5 mins! Really love these, and I know my DD would love a sleeping bag for her dollies, must give it a shot!
