Project of the Day: Quilted Sleeping Bag

If you’re looking for something a bit more ambitious here’s something that will be sure to occupy your time with some great results. This quilted sleeping bag looks incredibly cosy and comfortable. The instructions come in a .pdf format, which I have linked to here. The website I found this on is the website for Husqvarna sewing machines, so naturally they suggest in the instructions to use their machines to creates this. However, you should be fine with whatever sewing machine you use. Take a peek at what you need below.

You will need:
-Fabric for backing 55” x 61” (140 x 155 cm)
-2 strips 9.5” x 45.5” (24 x 115 cm) and 2 strips

-2 strips 2 1/4” x 41” (5.5 x 105 cm) for ties

-2 1/2” x 2 1/2” (6.5 x 6.5 cm) for the zipper
-3” x 200” (7.5 x 500 cm) for binding. (piece as
needed).

From five different cotton fabrics:
-42 squares total (6 3/4” x 6 3/4” (17 x 17 cm)),
using the rotary cutter, ruler and cutting mat
-11 squares of printed fabric
