Step 2: Where's the Pork?

To make the sleeping bag:

1. Lay out your burgundy fleece so that it is doubled over length wise with the fold along the top edge.  It will create a sandwich that is about 54" x 60" 

2. Open your sandwich and add your batting to the center.

3. Fold under the edges of the fabric by about 1/4" and pin the zipper into place between the folds. Work one half of the zipper at a time. Start the zipper at the top outer edge and end it at center of the bottom edge. (because the finished product will be folded in half)

4. Sew the zipper in place.

OPTIONAL: I also sewed a seam across the folded edge that was about 3-4" from the fold to distinguish it as the opened end.
This is so cute!!! My best friend is literally obsessed with Bacon! Bacon shirts, bacon pillows, bacon jewelry, bacon chocolate, bacon shoes, you name it! But, she does not have a bacon sleeping bag! Perfect Birthday gift! Do you have an estimate on how much fabric I would have to use for someone who is exactly 6'0? :-)
Who doesn't love novelty food items? ;) If the person is of average build I think the width should still work fine so you just need to get twice the length of the bag you want. (because it is doubled over) for a 6 ft tall person I'd guess you'd want it to be between 60-72" in length. SO you'd need about 4 yards of the burgundy color. As far as the egg material & white felt you should be safe with the same amounts, you just won't have a lot of room for play/mistakes. :) Hope this helps & Happy Creating!
You won! Congrats! :) :)
that's so fun!
This is very cute. I am sure this sleeping bag will be used until the threads are worn out! Nice job! <br>Sunshiine
This is Eggcelent. Good job friend!
Thanks for &quot;Egging&quot; me on!
Awesome! This would be great for our annual camping trip. Nice Work!
OMG! Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is my all time favorite book! My grandma would read that to me when I was younger and I don't know what it is, but I just love that book. I'm so glad this project was inspired by that because this project is sweet! I would love a sleeping bag set like that! I agree with Scooch, enter it to ThinkGeek!
Thanks! I did enter it to ThinkGeek! Now I just wait. I know what you mean about the book, there is just something very MAGICAL about it. Even as an adult I enjoy reading it to my children! :)
Very cool!
I would really dream about bacon in that sleeping bag! Amazing.
This is fantastic, I love it! You should submit this to the <a href="http://www.thinkgeek.com/geeklabs/ideafactory.shtml">ThinkGeek Idea Factory</a> - they're always looking for new products, and I bet this would be a hit! Or, you know, Kickstarter if you're into starting your own line :D &nbsp;This one's a hit in my book!&nbsp;
Thanks! I love ThinkGeek, &amp; wasn't aware that they except ideas. Maybe I'll give it a go.
that is sooo cute and awesome, better than breakfast in bed, :)
Lol. I'm all about word play &amp; puns, I can't believe I didn't think of that one. &quot;breakfast in bed&quot;, that's a good one!
