Sew on buttons along back garter st band to correspond with buttonholes on front. Fold sleeping bag at foldline and fasten buttons. Using 4mm crochet hook, make a length of chain approx 35cm long. Attach a trimming to each end of chain, then sew centre of chain to front corner of sleeping bag as pictured. Sew remaining trimming.
