Craft Girls ~ Princess and the Pea Sleeping Bag 24

by Shelley


Hello there Crafty Girls!

I saw this idea for a pillow sleeping bag a while back and just had to share it with you. It reminds me of the fairy tale The Princess and The Pea. Do you know this story?


Once upon a time a princess was traveling in a far off country and was stranded in a rain storm. The princess sought shelter in a nearby castle and when she was introducing herself she called herself a princess. While she certainly didn’t look the part, the King and Queen decided to put her to the test…just in case. They showed her to a room with a towering bed stacked with 25 mattresses. And just to see if she was really a princess, the king and queen put a tiny hard pea under the verybottom mattress. The next morning when our heroine arrived at breakfast, she was asked if  she slept well. One look at her disheveled appearance told the whole story. She reported that indeed, she didn’t sleep well at all because of a lump in her bed. That proved it! Only a true princess could be so sensitive to discern a lump the size of a pea under 25 mattresses! She married the handsome prince of the castle and, of course, lived happily ever after!


Now that I have  explained the rather lengthy reason why I chose this craft for you, here it is.

I think you will understand why it reminded me of this fairy tale.

You can find a complete tutorial for this craft by the creative Kendra at Southern Disposition!
