We are less than two months away from another epic road trip! In the first installment of the Road Trip series this spring, I have decided that the dolls are camping with us this year. I am working on some other doll camping concepts, mostly heavily influenced by this concept. I love this idea, but hate the dolls and soda involved. Instead, I decided to sew some mummy style sleeping bags for two of our dolls from Sora's dollhouse (from Plan Toys and Ryan's Room).
Pattern (all seems are 1/4", except along the zipper edge where the seam is 3/8")
Scrap fabric for outer fabric, lining fabric, and scrap batting or felt
Zipper (I used a 4" zipper)
1. Print pattern and cut out all pieces. Make sure the front pieces are opposite. Also, cut a 1" strip of lining fabric as long or longer than the front hood piece.
7. Carefully fold front lining down, encasing the top of the zipper in the folded edge. Top stitch along zipper edge, making sure to catch the lining piece.
8. Iron the edges of the 1" piece in to meet at the middle. I used a bias tape maker for this. The result should be a 1/2" piece with two 1/4" flaps.
Your dolls are ready to sleep out under the stars.
