    Default Winter sleeping bags?

    So I'm trying to sew some winter sleeping bags for my DD. Summer bags are easy with cotton etc...
    But I'm just wondering if there is anyone else out there who makes their own and what you use for fabric/layers for a winter one!!???
    Anyone?

    I made dd's out of a flannelette fleece They were only the one layer, no lining. I just put her in a body suit and/or flanny pjs underneath depending how cold it was

    I was worried flannelette would be too hot. Did you line it with a light cotton or anything?

    I made some a few years ago, I used light micro fleece and lined them with flannelette. No arms though.

    Yeah. But I didn't think they breathe very well and I'm worried about getting too hot.

    I hadn't thought about the breath ability of it. Sorry.
    Maybe stick with the flannel then.

    We just got a sleep sack thingy from cotton on kids for $30. A winter bundler I think they call them.
