For the sleeping bag I used fleece as a lining and a rectangle of one fabric ratherthan patchwork so that the seams wouldn't be too bulky. I used 1/2 yard of mainfabric, a rectangle of fleece 42" by 15.1/2" and about 55" of lace or broderieanglaise. In the photos, the fabric is the bouncing ball design and the teddies arein fleece.Cut a 2.1/2" strip of fabric across the width of the fabric. Put this to one side forthe moment to be used for the binding.Place the fleece right side down and lay the fabric on top with right side up. Pinthe 2 pieces together.Fold in half along the length, giving a rectangle about 8" by22". Using a plate or anything curved, mark a curve inside one corner - makesure you are not on the corner where the fold is. Cut along the marked curve toround off the top of the sleeping bag.Fold the binding strip in half along its length and press. Cut a 15.1/2" length.Lay a 15.1/2" length of lace along the bottom, straight, edge of the fabric and laythe binding on top of the lace (all raw edges together). Sew all layers togetherusing a 1/4" seam.
Flip the binding over and slipstitch to the fleece lining. With the fleece liningunderneath, fold the bottom, bound edge up by 17", so that you have a 27"rectangle underneath and 17" rectangle on top, with a fold at the bottom. Thefleece should be on the outside. Sew the seams on either side from the fold tothe lace binding. Turn inside out. The bottom of the sleeping bag is complete, sonow there just remains the binding around the top, curved edge.Measure around the top curved section of the baby sleeping bag. Mine measures30". Cut a length of lace about 38" long and stitch along the long inner edgeusing the largest stitch size on your machine. This usually gathers the lace upslightly as shown, but if it doesn't then gently pull one of the threads of yourstitching and you can slide the lace along the thread to gather it slightly.You also need 30" of binding. The remainder of the 2.1/2" strip is just too shortso I added 2" of another fabric to each end. I felt that this was better thancutting a second 2.1/2" strip from the fabric at the beginning and reducing thewidth of the baby sleeping bag. For the same reason I have not cut the bindingon the bias, even though it is to follow a curve.Zigzag the raw ends of the lace and tuck the raw ends of the binding inside thefold. Working on the outer fabric side of the sleeping bag, pin first the lace andthen the binding to the sleeping bag, all raw edges together.In order to be sure and catch all the layers of fabric, it is best to use a 1/2" seamto sew the layers together. Ease the layers gently round the curves. Don't worryif the binding looks puckered as it will straighten out when you flip it to the otherside.
