Here’s a fabulous FREE sewing pattern for a baby sleeping sack. There are many benefits of using a sleeping sack for your baby. They may prevent overheating, but also keep your baby warm at night because they can’t kick off the sleeping sack like they can kick off a blanket. Also, there is no risk of pulling it over their head, which makes it super safe for babies and parents friendly. That said, this would be the perfect gift for baby showers and new parents.
When finished this baby sleeping sack (bag) will be 80 cm (31½”) long. This length of sleeping sack is suitable for babies from 6 to 14 months. You should choose the size that is suitable for your babies length and weight, if you are not sure, or your baby is between sizes, always go a size up.
The designer of this FREE pattern recommends that you use breathable materials for the sleeping bag like for example, cotton and wool. She also advises that for the zipper you should use an open-ended one and place it upside down. This will prevent the sleeping sack from being easily open by your baby.
