For more than a few months now I have been wanting to make these cute little sleeping bags that I saw in Pottery Barn. In our family we call them "Cowboy beds". I knew that I wanted to for sure make one for my son because everywhere we travel, even if there is a bed, he never wants to sleep that far away from anyone. We usually wind up making him a "cowboy bed" out of random blankets that we have. When we go to motels it is a lot harder to make a comfy bed on the floor because usually all the other blankets in the room are needed by everyone else.
To make a long story short, my mom ending up helping me make these, all 3 in less than a day! I didn't think that I would have time to get ONE done before our trip next week, but with my mom's help anything can be possible! There will be a tutorial coming soon so you can all make one too if you want! We were originally going to do the puppy dog ones for the girls, but we aren't too into the puppy phase yet, so we decided to do owls (no surprise)! My mom is awesome at sewing so she made up the pattern to work for the owl head/pillows!
J.T. has more of a plain one, with a soft minky lining and a cute sporty pattern! We were going to make a Superman or Batman one, but we couldn't find the fabric, but I know he loves his sports too!
The beds are still at my parent's house, so I don't have a picture of the kids in them yet! I will make sure to get one so you can get a better idea of the size!
Thanks for stopping by!
