It Can Be Used as a Blanket and Play Mat Too!
What’s cuter than a tiny baby snuggled up in a quilted sleeping bag? The bags are practical too, especially when it’s cold outside.
We’ve seen several versions of darling quilted baby sleeping bags for sale.
The following version was originally found for sale on WellnessMama.com.
This version was found for sale on Tesco.com.
Rather than buy one, a basic pattern gives you lots of room to be creative in crafting your own. Plus, you can make as many as you want for new baby gifts.
The pattern (pictured below) by Tiina from Tikki London is very similar in construction to the bags shown above. You can easily adapt the piecing and add a bit of applique to make it uniquely yours. A thicker batting, like in those pictured above, would make it even more snuggly.
It’s sized for newborns and infants up to 4 or 5 months old. Open it up for a play mat, or use it as a blanket, too, especially as the baby gets bigger. In fact, it will open into a crib quilt once the baby outgrows the bag.
New moms will love this, and you’ll have fun customizing the pattern each time you make it.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
