Someone sent a PM asking about the assembly. Basically, I make two quilts, one is the head half and the other is the foot half. Then, I sew baffles onto one side of each half.
After that, I sew 12-13" of omni-tape (two sided velcro) to the two halves at the center. Then, I stick the two halves together at the velcro strip and sew the two halves together outside of the velcro area. Then the two halves are one with the ability to separate the omni-tape strips to create the neck hole.
Finally, I sew the baffles to the opposing side of fabric, hem the edge all around except for a 12" opening for stuffing down. Since I essentially have two short quilts, I have to leave a 12" gap unsewn in each half.
The last touch is to sew two 18" long strips of 3/8" grossgain about 16" up from the corners on what will be the back side in "jacket mode." I simply tie these together in a bow in front of me to close the "jacket."
