Sleep Sack

I don't know if any of you use these for your kids, but in our home, we swear by them!!  Elise has slowly progressed from the Swaddle Me, to the fleece bag sleeper from Carters, to this.  The first one my mom bought Elise for her birthday and I decided she needed another for when the other is dirty, etc so I made the purple fleece one with my sister Nicole when I was in Utah.  Since we are experiencing summer temperatures here in Wisconsin I knew I couldn't put Elise in her fleece sleep sack- so I made a summer one out of flannel.  I used the one my mom bought as a template and cut it out, sewed in a zipper, and finished off the sleeves and voila- there you go!  Beats paying $22 for another!  These are a fun and easy project!
{I made the patterned ones above, the solid light pink one was purchased!}

If you'd like to make one for your kid and don't have one already to use as a temple, I know that Ashely from Make It and Love it has a great tutorial.  You can find that here.

This is awesome! Did you also love the "Swaddle Me"? I've heard that it's way better than just a blanket - but I don't know if it's really that big of a difference. What do you think
? (p.s. you are so crafty and talented. I love it!)
