How to Make a No Sew Elf on the Shelf Sleeping Bag for Cheap
I have been obsessed with Elf on the Shelf crafts. It’s like an addiction! This time, I thought I’d make an Elf on the Shelf Sleeping Bag. I figure since we once found our elf Josie camping under a Christmas card tent and sleeping in a Barbie bed, I might as well make her, her very own sleeping bag. This craft took a couple minutes and cost about a dollar.
But first, here is a video of some of my ideas. Enjoy!
Time: 5-10 Minutes
I cut two piece of felt. One was the length of regular felt sheet the other was a few inches shorter. The width of both was half of the width of a felt sheet. I also cut two small white triangles for the pillow.
I glued the two large rectangles together on three sides. I also folded the top piece back and put a dab of glue to hold it in place so it looked like the sleeping bag was folded over.
For the pillow, I glued the side of the white rectangles together, stuffed it with two cotton balls, and then glued the final forth side.
Our elf fit perfectly inside.
I figured Mia may catch Josie camping, catching a cold and being sick in bed, or having a slumber party with her other stuffed animals and dolls. We’ll see!
