When my daughter was born I was constantly getting up during the night to make sure she was covered and sure enough, she was always uncovered. I was constantly worried! At the time she was an infant sleep sacks weren’t even invented.
In this day and time, my daughter has had the luxury of using these…wish I’d known about this brilliant DIY back then…it would have saved me a lot of restless nights!
I made some of these for my grandchildren because where they live it’s downright chilly. Despite my daughter’s best effort to bundle up her little ones they still woke up every night with icebox hands. That’s why I decided to make an ultra-warm, fully lined, sleep sack for them. Anything that might produce more sleep is worth the effort in my book and I didn’t want my daughter going through what I did when she was an infant.
This is the perfect way to ensure the covers stay on and you can make them in all your favorite colors and patterns. This would make a fantastic handmade gift too!
