When Suz proposed to have a surprise party for An I knew I wanted to make something using one of her patterns. I have already made the Ishi dress and the Tinny dress for Miss R. I also have the Hanami dress and top and the Moiano coat patterns. I am sure Miss R would have loved these also. However...
Please click through to the product description in An's shop. What was the first thing you noticed? The fabric of course! I swear this is a coincidence, but how funny! I am not sure what fabric An used for the sleeping bag in the product description. Mine is Japanese printed cotton poplin from Spotlight. I am pretty sure An likes mustard. I am talking about the colour of course :) This is the reason behind my fabric choice.
I used the same fabric for the outer layer and the lining. I did not think about it until I started installing the zipper. Despite An's very clear instructions on installing the zipper I got myself completely confused a few times simply because my lining and the outer layers looked the same!
I lined my version of the sleeping bag with flannelette.
It just happens that both An and I love piping. An also likes mint. Again, the colour. Why did people name colours after food? It gets so confusing! I didn't have any mint. Neither in my stash or the pantry. I did however have lime green. So, An, let's pretend that lime green is mint, OK?
I didn't get a chance to take modeled photos. Please believe me the sleeping bag fits Baby L perfectly! It has just the right amount of ease around the chest and I think the length is spot on. Baby L's Lua sleeping bag keeps her snug and warm.
An, you are a true inspiration. You work very hard and the result is fantastic. I wish you all the best on your new adventure.
Enough from me, let's keep this party going! Check out what other party goers have to say :)
