Once R11 recovered from the initial incident involving her arm, she began to craft again! Prior to Thanksgiving, she started a making a sleeping bag for her American Girl dolls and it was ready in time to take a guest on the road with us! Usually her projects are one day affairs, but occasionally she goes for a longer one. This one was pretty much made in one afternoon.
|It has two layers of felt so it’s nice and fluffy. She chose not to fill it with stuffing.|
|Note the seams across the fabric in the bag- just like the real bags. Dan discussed with her what they are for and how it helps the bag to be a good insulator.|
|All set and a perfect fit!|
Glancing at a recent American Girl catalog, she calculates she saved herself about $25. I love to watch her creativity at work!
