I made the smallest size, 0-6 mos, for Claire. We still swaddle her right now, but we’ll stop in a couple of weeks and use this sleep sack instead. Then it won’t be so big on her either! Since summer is beginning, I chose to put a cotton flannel in the sleep sack instead of wool batting so it wouldn’t be too hot.
I chose fabric with a simple pattern for the sleep sack. I wanted something I liked (because I will be looking at it often) and that would work for a boy or a girl so that I could use it for future children. I also omitted the piping and piecing on the front to get clean lines.
I almost chose giant matching turquoise buttons, but luckily I got help on instagram and chose the fun, red buttons instead. I love the pop of color! I also chose a dark fabric for the lining to help hide any stains that might happen.
Look at those eyes!
This sleep sack is smart and the curved piecing is beautiful. I feel so lucky that I was able to test it! The pattern goes up to size 2, so I’ll be able to make more as Claire grows. I can’t wait to try the other style!
