Quilted Sleeping Bag and Pillows for American Girl Doll

This is another little sewing project I did for Grace's American Girl dolls over my winter break. As nice as all the items made specifically for these dolls are, they really are quite expensive. I had made other things for her dolls in the past, like this cute little doll-sized tote bag, and this big-girl sized bag to carry dolls. So when Grace thought a sleeping bag would be fun for her dolls, I just knew that was something I could make very easily. So I let her pick out her own fabric from the fabric store. Yes, you read that correctly! No stash shopping this time. Fresh new fabric right off the bolt that she got to pick out herself! It's the little things, right? She was thrilled! It took me a couple hours in my greatly neglected sewing room and this is what I came up with...

It's a quilted sleeping bag with matching quilted pillows...

...and it's reversible too!

I even added a little tie at the bottom of the bag on both sides so that it could be tied up neatly into a roll for traveling or storage. I would love to offer a tutorial for this design that I came up with out of my own head, but right now I don't have the time it would take to do it justice. Maybe after graduation. But I will tell you, it is completely reversible with no unfinished seams anywhere and no hand sewing necessary. If you have experience sewing bags and such, you might be able to figure it out on your own. If not, feel free to drop me a line and request a tutorial after May and I might put it at the top of my list!

Happy Stitching!
