Starry, Starry Night

I’ve finished the sleeping bag for my little niece or nephew. It was pretty straight forward. The pattern is a Burda pattern (9640), difficulty: easy. Although the pattern advised only two materials without wadding, I included cotton wadding as that made more sense.


The material choice was easy, simple cotton in a light cream for the outside and an orangy yellow for the lining. I’ve also stitched some stars onto the finished sleeping bag, to make it look less plain.

I’m really proud of the finished sleeping bag as it looks really snug and comfortable and the stars makes it extra pretty, whether the baby will be a boy or a girl.

  1. Hello,

    I’m working on that pattern now and it has no instructions about when to put in the batting. Did you sew it to the exterior fabric? I’ve seen lots of bags that have the bating quilted in – just wide straight lines, but I know this can shrink the size of the finished piece. If you can shed any light on this I’d be most grateful.

    Yours looks great!
