Snakey's Sleeping Bag

We have a tradition at our house. Every Friday night is a movie night. We get into our pjs, bring down our sleeping bags, camp out in front of the TV and watch one of about 4 or 5 movies. Let's see, there's Herbie, Cars, Curious George, Milo and Otis, and Airbud. Sometimes we break it up with the old Inspector Gadget cartoons.

Anyway, one night my five year old was feeling bad that his toy snake didn't have a decent sleeping bag. So we made him one. I even went to the effort to put in a loooong zipper (although it doesn't turn a corner like on a real sleeping bag). Eh, snakey doesn't seem to care.

eta 3/4/09 : A few people have emailed to ask what fabric that is with the circles. The fabric is from here. I received it from Alison about 2 years ago, and it's not available on their website anymore. The circles are reverse appliqued onto quilter's cotton using this method. Here's a closeup:
