Converting a Quilt to a Baby Sleeping Bag // Tutorial

A while back I saw the cutest little baby sleeping bag floating around Pinterest. It linked to a shop listing for the Jamboree Snuggle Me that was no longer available for sale. Had I been able to find one to buy I would have totally purchased it. For a while after that I couldn't get it out of my head, so I decided to make my own version of a baby sleeping bag.

I put together a tutorial to share with you today. This is not a tutorial for the hexagon quilt (sorry), but it is a tutorial on how to take a unbound quilt and finish it as a baby sleeping bag.
