Sew Some Sleeping Bags. I'm officially allergic to any Christmas decorating/muzak that occurs before December 1st, but I do appreciate the weeks it takes to get your craft on.
Most years I try to give handmade gifts, so I wanted to share a few with you this month and next. Simple bear sleeping bag with a stuffed pillow. SUPPLIES: -wool batting for stuffing pillow -two coordinating fabrics. Cut two of each fabric as follows: Back panel - 18 x 10 inches Front panel - 13.5 x 10 inches Place right sides of the fabrics together and sew up both the front panel and the back panel pieces like pillowcases, leaving the top edges open for turning. Take the front panel piece and fold under the "pillowcase" (open) edge about 1/2 inch. To make the pillow, measure a line about 6 inches from the top. (View from the back). Stuff your wool batting into that opening. Either hand or machine stitch closed. Turn your sleeping bag inside out, insert bear and admire your cleverness.
That's one present done! Hooded Doll Blanket Tutorial. I've been meaning to make one of these for a really long time.
Claire likes to have her baby wrapped in a blanket, but it's difficult for her to keep the blanket on the baby & she gets frustrated. This little blanket has a hood & a velcro closure to keep it from falling off. To make the blanket you'll need 2 - 15" square pieces of fabric. One triangle piece of fabric (When cutting, line this fabric up with one corner of your square piece, measure 8" on each side & then draw a line to connect them making the bottom line of the triangle). Double fold bias tape & some velcro. I am giving you measurements for a larger triangle piece than I used.
Sew the bias tape on & trim it flush with the triangle edges. Arrange your fabric pieces like so...Outside piece right side down, lining piece right side up, triangle piece in one corner facing right side up. Using a bowl & fabric marker, draw rounded corners on all four corners. Cut the rounded corners. And there you have it! Sew A Snuggie Type Blanket For Barbie & Other Fashion Dolls.
