Jenn of A Jennuine Life had been planning to make her daughter a sleeping bag for Christmas. When her daughter went gaga for a Sherpa sleeping bag in the PB Kids catalog, the project got pushed to the top of Jenn’s to-do list. Jenn totally outdid herself with this snuggly Hello Kitty bag that features a plush Kitty face and fleece lining. I am amazed by Jenn’s work! I just might start sleeping on the floor if I had a sleeping bag like this one!
