    Sleeping / UQ

    Hey Guys....

    Has anyone out there used an old sleeping bag and done a mod to convert it into a Under Quilt or Top Quilt?

    I understand that most OLD sleeping bags roll up to a small size of 20" x 30" ......but could they be cut down....sewed up into a 3/4 UQ or maybe a TQ......I would think out of an old sleeping bag.....you could get rid of maybe 1/2 making an UQ.......maybe take 1/2 for a TQ?

    anyone done that?

    Thanks,

    Athens

    Lots of people have done this. Search around on youtube.

    creativeKayt has a video of it but for some reason I can't find it on there...

    But the short answer is Yes!
