***PDF Tutorial for American Girl or other 18-inch dolls ~ "Good Night Sleeping Bag Set"***

Every doll loves to have sleep-overs with her friends! Now your doll can have her very own personalized sleeping bag to take to her next sleep-over. This tutorial includes directions for making a quilted sleeping bag with zipper closure and optional personalization. Also included in the tutorial are instructions to make a pillow, two different styles of pillow cases, and a carrying case that’s perfect for taking the sleeping bag to a friend’s house.

Supplies Needed:
2/3 yard main fabric - lightweight fabrics are best, I typically use a fun flannel print
2/3 yard lining fabric - another lightweight fabric that coordinates with the main fabric
2/3 yard batting - Warm and White or Warm and Natural work best
18 inch zipper
18 inches of 1/4 inch ribbon (for carrying case)

Optional Supplies:
Coordinating/Accent fabric and heat-and-bond for personalization (letter patterns included with tutorial)
Ribbon or 2 pony tail holders or 1/4 inch elastic for sleeping bag ties
Trim for pillow case
***While not essential, a walking foot is highly recommended for quilting the sleeping bag.***

Skill Level:
Advanced Beginner
While the items in this tutorial aren't difficult to construct, some steps (like installing the zipper and sewing curved seams) require a previous knowledge of sewing.
