So here is my First Sleep Sack listing!

So I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and bought some Fleece fabric and some Flannel (I messed this one up) to start making some Sleep Sacks for Toddlers. I think this is just a wonderful idea because you can't find them in stores anywhere! I'm starting listing them at $27 so I can make a profit and not have to eat a bunch of fees. I'm going to see how it goes and if it doesn't sell I'll end up having to lower it - I'm terrible at pricing items.

It's a wonderful baby blue fleece with white polka dots with a 22 inch white zipper to keep it closed. I have it listed on Etsy as well at Artfire... so take a look!! Once I get the flannel to work right the price will be much lower.... fleece is $10 a yard! Eek!

My sons new 2T sleep sack

So after searching and searching with no luck I finally sat down and sewed Skyler his own sleep sack for a 2 year old, because his 18 month one was just too short. Now granted I did find some online made for toddlers claiming to be sleep sacks but they had feet holes in them! Now tell me this... why are they calling it a sleep sack when all other sleep sacks before them were actual SACKS... no feet holes are needed. My sons feet would be freezing even with the socks he wears! So there you go... Skyler's very own REAL toddler Sleep Sack.

Now granted I did go a little over board on his and bought him 1 yard (and just about used ALL of it) of the Camouflage Minky from Fabric.Com... but I saw it and couldn't help myself, lol! I plan to make this again but with a less expensive flannel that's just as good as the minky. With my new 40% coupon from Hobby Lobby I can get some flannel this week and get to sewing!!

I just searched Etsy.Com for a "Sleep Sack" and only saw 14 pages of items... and with them NOT one was over 24 months. I do believe I may have a winner here =)
