FO Friday #7: A Sleeping Bag

A quick FO Friday post (as I'm meant to be packing for my weekend away!) to show you my first ever knitting commission.

After showing off the sleeping bag I made for Evie I was asked to do one for a friend's nephew.




There's a little pocket with J on (for Jude) & a footprint to use my new found embroidery skills.




The bag (and pocket) were lined with a super soft fleecy blanket.




I was left to my own devices to come up with colours & design, but it's gone down well & I am really pleased with it too.

I don't think I'm going to get a chance to look at the other FOs til next week, unless I can get my packing done quickly - but you can go check out Tami's blog to see what everyone else has been up to.

That's so cute! I love the little pocket at the top as well.

I may have to make myself a grown-up sized one of these for winter ;) It looks so snuggly!

So cute, especially with the extra touches like the embroidered J and the little footprint! Looks very practically soft and warm as well!
