As I mentioned yesterday, our little girl is about to embark on a camping trip with her class. One of the requirements is she needs to be able to roll up her sleeping bag and put it in a carrying sack all on her own. Well, the one we have came in a bag three times too small for it (I have no idea why they do that), so I decided to make her a much bigger bag for the bag, upcycling pillowcases.
I first cut the bottom off a pillowcase and made it into a cycinder. Then, I took a second pillowcase and cut a large circle for the bottom. I don’t use math here (even though I probably should), but instead, cut it super large, and trimmed off what I didn’t need after it was sewn to the cylinder.
I used the second pillowcase to create a simple strap.
I sewed a casing for the drawstring at the top.
Super simple and super quick to make. And after the pants, I needed something satisfying to whip up quickly. I made this in less than an hour from start to finish. There is plenty of room to also stuff her pillow. Which, incidentally is a throw pillow from our couch (she wanted a smaller pillow to take), that I also made a simple pillowcase for right after I made this (photos for another day).
