Today we have another fun project to make with our new Norwegian Wood collection! This one might be my daughter Annie's favorite one yet as it affords her the opportunity to request a sleepover, the pinnacle of fun for any 8 year old. But first, she was ready to do a test run on a lazy Sunday afternoon, this mom's idea of the pinnacle of fun as it happens...
And as you can see, our girl Penny whole-heartedly agrees. In fact, I'm not sure that this sweet pup does anything that she doesn't feel with all her heart!
The pattern is the Slumberland sleep sack from Bonnie Christine. The design offered a great way to showcase those Hoos in the Forest. And for the matching pillowcase, I'm always fond of using a great border design so our Botanical Border was an easy choice.
For the lining of the sleeping bag, we wanted a nice and bright fabric to contrast the warm cover and our Mixed Nuts design made for the perfect choice.
In fact, after initially conceiving of the design, I immediately thought of bed linens and quilt backs for the rustic acorns, pine-cones, feathers and foliage. It looks so crisp and inviting. As you can see, my little girl agrees!
Clearly she's ready for her next sleepover. And after an afternoon of attempting to read Jane Austen I think this bookworm has earned it! As for Penny and Pepper, what can I say, being that cute can be exhausting.
Finally, here's a peek at the handy strap for toting around your Slumberland sleep sack. The Roll n Go pattern is also available in our shop from Bonnie Christine. It allows for an easy hands free way for her to tote around an otherwise cumbersome piece for her short little arms. And, its "cool because it looks like a a burrito bag". Can't argue with that logic!
We hope you'll give this project a whirl, it's fun for boys and girls big and small! Please tag your piece with #NorwegianWoodFabric on social media so we can see and share your wonderful work. Happy Sewing!
