Shaggy Dog Sleeping Bags

*not my children, in case that was unclear ;)

I have wanted these sleeping bags for the kids FOREVER (seriously, like 2 years).  At $89/each I could just never bring myself to do it.  I'd finally given up and was going to make something similar I found on Pinterest with Anna last weekend.  When we went to the fabric store, I noticed a Downeast Home close.  Since I know DEH gets pbkids rejects, I thought maybe we should stop there first, just in case.  I wasn't wrong.  There were SO many Shaggy Dog sleeping bags, and they were on clearance! 

Being "rejects" they were all embroidered, so I was a little bit leery.  Anna checked them out though, and said with a seam ripper it could be undone.  So, we picked up a little "Parker" (which was for some reason $17 when all the others were $22) and a "Gabi" (because it was the least to undo). 

We took them home, and seam ripped away.  Shawn actually proved to be the best seam ripper of all.  If I'd known they'd be so easy and that I'd have so many helpers I'd have bought more.  The embroidery came out cleanly, and no one will ever know it was there (except for all of you). 

The kids are in total heaven:





They're begging for a sleepover now.  Any takers?

*and I might have gone back and bought a third one.  I couldn't leave Auds out.
