Step 11: Egg Sleeping Bag
Cut your black and green fabric to the height of the child (or adult) you are making this for. Edge A
The other edge should be at or more than 30 inches for a child. Edge B
Also cut out a double layer of batting the same size at your fabric.
Layer your fabric with the green and black right sides facing each other and the batting on the bottom. Pin along Edge A and sew with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

Lay the fabric open like a book and then fold to the right side of the black is on the top and the batting is sandwiched in between both fabrics.
Pin along sewn edge and sew. Keep your non slippery fabric on the bottom.

Continue sewing (quilting) every 2 inches, leaving the last 2 inches on the opposite edge open.
Cut the batting out of the last 2 inches.
Place the sew edge into the place where you cut the batting out and pin together. Fold the green fabric and sew together the black fabric and batting along the top. You will probably have to remove a few stitches to fold the fabric down. Fold the green fabric back together and hand sew it for a finished edge.
Fold the unfinished edge under and pin. Hand sew for a nice finish.

Remove the pins and turn the sleeping bag inside out and repeat the last step with the black fabric.
Cut out a rectangle of black and green fabric that is 10" x 32" (or 2" longer than your Edge B). This will be the top of the egg.

Fold in half and pin. Then fold again leaving 1" to the side.
Cut at a 45º angle from the top left corner (shown in this picture as the middle because my fabric was to big). Repeat with the black fabric.

Put the fabric together right sides facing and sew with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Turn inside out.
