Made from polar fleece fabric, it's a soft and warm place for your little one to snooze in, keeping them comfortable as well as stylish. Available in 2 sizes, both at 2.5-3 tog, they can fit newborns all the way to 18 months old, but we recommend measuring your baby first to guarantee it's the right fit. The baby grobag is printed on both sides, and each side can be designed separately, giving you the chance to display more of your unique patterns.

How We Make Your Baby Sleeping Bags
Expertly handmade to order, your customised baby grobag is a totally unique product, that's the perfect balance between functional and stylish. Your original designs are printed onto the fire rated polar fleece fabric, using a specialist process that impregnates the ink deep into the material fibres, creating a long-lasting, vibrant print. Our seamstresses cut the pattern and hand sew the sleeping bag together. Plastic zips and press studs are added to the sides and shoulders to make it easy to put your baby in and out without hassle.
This is totally safe to put in the washing machine at 30°c. At 285gsm, Polar fleece is a hero fabric with many other benefits as well as being incredibly soft and warm. It has water repellent properties, and is also fire rated for low flammability. Always keep away from fire. Complies with BS5722 low flammability test "LOW FLAMMABILITY TO BS 5722".
When designing your baby sleeping bags, it's important to bear in mind the shape of the bag, particularly where the shoulders are concerned. For repeat patterns, this isn't an issue, but for any photographs, keep important features of the image within the main body/tummy area. Within the design interface, you'll also notice the two precut holes at the top of the shoulders, indicating where the press studs are. Any elements placed in these two small areas will be cut out of the fabric, so make sure to double check your design.
Reviews for Baby Sleeping Bag
based on 1 customer reviews
I was really happy with what I received the print and finished quality of the sew was great.
Although the baby sleeping bag didn't come out quite how I expected. I didn't realise the cream zip would show so much. And with such a dark bold print it really shows up, so does the fleece liner. It would be great if you gave an option to have a dark popper, liner and dark zipper for designs that are quite dark in colour.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
