To answer your question about sleeping bags, yes. I'm making one now, but it will be short with a standard bag. Comes out to be about 79" of length with the sleeping bag option.
The other day I call up the local fabric store just for the heck of it and there ripstop nylon is $7! $4.95 still is like so much !! lol
