An from StraightGrain has released another digital pattern. This time, not a dress, it’s a Lua Sleep Sack!!
I have many of my “first time” while making this sleeping sack, for the years I have been sewing, this is the first time I actually do piping, installing invisible zipper and making button holes.
The most challenging part for me is working on the curve with the pipe, I had to undo it few time to get the good result. But this does give a beautiful unique look for the sleeping sack. It’s totally worth the effort.
I made this for my little niece, Emma. She’s now 19 months old (remember Emma for another An’s pattern Hanami Top?). She doesn’t like close sack, so I have made a little alternation of the pattern by having the bottom open.
For materials, you will need:
- Medium and lightweight fabrics
- 1 Hidden Zipper
- 2 Buttons
That it really. This Sleep Sack is fairy easy to make, it took me about 2 hours to cut the fabrics and around 3 hours on the machine. The result looks stunning. I will be making another one for my friend.
