My daughter (2 years) doesn't keep covers on. We live in Florida but we're going to be traveling in an RV all winter in colder climes so I want to make her a sleeping bag with arms or arm holes, like a baby sleep sack. I bought a coat at the thrift store this morning that I thought I could sew up the bottom of, then modify the top to make it fit her. It's a man's coat. I don't know what it's stuffed with--it's slippy fabric with some stuffing, like a sleeping bag.
Anyone tried something like this? Got any ideas or advice? I'm also thinking of lining the inside with a wool sweater so it will be warm to get into (in case we are putting it on her when she's already asleep and don't want her to wake up from touching the cold bag.
No machine, so hand-sewing project. Because I've got that much free time--ha!
