Bacon wrapped kids anyone??? This sleeping bag combo was inspired by one of my favorite childhood books "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" which in recent years was adapted into an animated movie that my children enjoy as well. The book is about a town called "Chewandswallow" that gets it's food from the weather & is overcome with a natural disaster of freakishly large food items. As a child I always dreamed of what it would be like to live in a town with super-sized food. Now my kids don't have to dream of it, they can experience it first hand, wrapped in their cozy bacon & egg sleeping bag set.
NOTE: The egg doubles as a sleeping bag carrier/pillow case.
Step 1: Ingredients
The materials needed will change depending on the size you would like to make your sleeping bag. I had my children in mind for this project so I made the bag about 54" in length & about 30" wide, but you could easily make it larger for an adult. Based on my measurements I used:
3 Yards of a burgundy fleece (bacon)
1.5 Yards of white fleece (egg)
3/4 Yard of yellow fleece (yolk)
1.5 Yards of white felt (for fat strips)
1 sleeping bag zipper (100 in)
20 in. of white velcro 1" width. (You can use a white zipper instead)
Quilt batting (I used a thin batting but you can use whatever you prefer or none at all if your fleece is thick)
About a basketball size amount of polyfill stuffing (yolk)
Optional: white ribbon for carrying strap.
Note: You will also need a sewing machine, threads to match, and scissors.
