Our OMQG president is having her first baby soon, so I wanted to make her a sleep sack. I looooooved using sleep sacks for my kids, and I never would have known about them if my mom hadn’t given me a couple.

I used the Lua sleep sack pattern, but modified it by moving the zipper to the center front and making it open from the bottom. After three kids, that’s my favorite kind of sleep sack — then you can just unzip baby’s legs and change her diaper without moving her too much or letting her get any colder than necessary. 🙂

I also replaced the buttons with strawberry patches. The Lua instructions have steps specifically for sewing buttons on really securely, and I would have been fine with buttons if I were keeping the sleep sack, but I thought I should err on the side of super safety on a present for a first-time mom. 😉

I love these narwhals and strawberries… I think I bought them when I was pregnant with Glowbug and all excited about making little baby girl clothes, but then I never got around to it. >_< I was so glad I had whole yard cuts of these because even though I made the smallest size (6 months), it's huge and used almost all of the fabric I had! Here is the six month-sized Lua sleep sack modeled on a pretty average-sized two year-old. :D:D:D lua sleep sakc, modeled

  1. The sleep sac is adorable – but the pic of your kids and the stylish modeling is precious!

  2. I love sleep sacks for my little one as well. What kind of fabric did you use? Yours looks very soft.
