    That is soooo pretty and functional! I never use snaps or anything which can come off when it comes to making baby quilts. I also never use any type of pins for fear of leaving one. I don't even keep them on my cutting mat or sewing areas. A little extreme, maybe!

    Baby quilt / sleeping bag (pic heavy)

    A couple of weeks ago, I asked for help finding a tutorial I had seen online for a baby quilt that converts to a bunting/sleeping bag. Mimi found it for me (and I quickly bookmarked the link )! You start with an unbound quilt about 50" x 32" add a zipper and binding, and then it folds in thirds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1MIWctL5Zs

    My project is not quite the right dimensions, so the fold-over section only comes half-way over, but I really don't mind. The inside is a flannel fat quarter bundle and the outside is a regular f/q bundle; a friend gave both bundles to me in September. I found some plain pink f/q's in my stash, and used that for the binding. All I had to purchase was the zipper and thread! I'd never installed a separating zipper before, but it was easy-peasy, following the directions on the tutorial. I also used Velcro instead of snaps, partly because I had some around, partly because I'm less worried about it falling off and into baby's mouth, and partly because I can machine-stitch the Velcro.

    Thanks for looking!
