Sleeping Bag Set for 18" Doll

My oldest 2 granddaughters, ages 10 and 8 both have American Girl dolls. The youngest is more into them than the older one. I recently made a sleeping bag set for the younger one and will make another one soon. I found the pattern for the sleeping bag on Pinterest, but did the pillow and bag on my own. These are easy and fun to make. I made these from fleece, but you could use flannel ad well. 

Pillow Case - 7" x 8" - 1 edge turned under 1/2", folded in 1/2 lengthwise.  
Pillow - made it out of muslin 6" x 7"and stuffed with polyfil

Drawstring bag - 10" x 32"

Fold in half so it measures 10"x16", right sides together 
Stitch the sides using a 5/8" seam allowance 
Fold the top down 2-3" (make sure your side seams are open flat)
Sew a casing wide enough for your ribbon or cording
Use a seam ripper to open your side seams between the casing
Run your ribbon or cording through
