Unique ways of using a sleeping bag

Hi ‼️Hi‼️ A slightly longer posting interval from SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 usual trend for this  blog post 👩🏻‍💻📝 because she made a mistake in her posting scheduling 🗓🕖 So sorry 😐 ya

Hmm…Do you own a sleeping 😴💤 bag ❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻was sponsored🎁with a sleeping 😴💤 bag for her Laos🇱🇦volunteering art teaching 👩🏻‍🏫 trip 🛫earlier in Sept by PTT Outdoor ☺️

However, due to the trip 🛫arrangement that require only stay in hostel 🏘 & with only hand carry luggage🎒of 7️⃣kg allowed for each of the volunteer’s 👫👭👬personal 👚👖🕶👟belongings, hence she didn’t ❌manage to bring along this sleeping 😴💤bag…🙁☹️😢😭

https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2017/09/08/amazing-community-pictorial-books-library/

In this connection, she was curious🤔about the unique ways of using a sleeping 😴💤bag & here you go her sharing from her research 👩🏻‍💻& reading 📖

Guess what❓⁉️

Sleeping 😴💤bag is actually not just as an ordinary item to be used for camping ⛺️🏕trips or any outdoor 🏖🛣🏞 adventures. Just more than that‼️😀

shutterstock_111407567

It is a protective bag for a person to sleep 😴💤in comfortably😉

Moreover, it definitely serves well as a warm♨️blanket because it provides the warmth & thermal insulation to a person👍🏻

Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻 personally thought that a sleeping😴💤bag can serve as a comfy warm♨️blanket while she is in a long travel journey via train 🚂 (her favourite❤️travel transportation mode), on the plane ✈️ or a tour bus 🚌

Do you recalled about SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝on how she has spent her last day of 2015 earlier❓⁉️

https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2016/01/01/a-quiet-count-down-moment-from-year-2015-to-year-2016-%F0%9F%A4%93%F0%9F%93%9A/

She suddenly thought that with her own sleeping😴💤 bag now, definitely more comfy of her 24/7 book 📚 shop reading 📖 pleasure then 😁

Ha…Ha….She is aiming for it this coming 31 Dec 2017 😍🤗 She is kind of looking forward to it now after owning this sleeping 😴💤bag🙂

If you are a minimalist❓Or into a minimalist lifestyle❓Do consider to have a sleeping 😴💤bag as your movable/ foldable bed 🛏

How❓⁉️

Very simple❓Just rent or own a studio🏠unit, then you can save space by using a sleeping 😴💤bag as your bed 🛌

You may get an inflatable pillow for a more comfy sleep 💤 😴

Yeah‼️Using sleeping 😴💤bags for all girls 👭👭👭overnight🌃🌌talk, can be renting a hotel 🏢room, a girl 👭 friend’s home🏡living room etc.😆

Just imagine that all girl friends👭👭👭gathering together in a space, comfortably in a sleeping 😴💤bag & then chit chatting all night 🌃🌌long….if tired, straight away lie down & enjoy sleeping in the protective warm ♨️bag 😃 So cool right❓⁉️ Ha…Ha…🤣

Hmm…How about recycling ♻️a sleeping 😴💤bag then?

As always SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 loves to explore ways of recycling♻️

1. Do contact 📞☎️📱📧 the manufacturer to see if they accept old sleeping😴💤bags. Some companies will take them in to be recycled ♻️/ reused / to conduct their own product research

2. Do make a quilt by using the inside stuffing of the sleeping 😴💤bag to fill a new quilt. If it’s in good condition, you can use the sleeping bag fabric for the underside of your quilt too 👍🏻😊

3. Do donate it to a local organization. It could be an animal 🐶🐱shelter / with bags in good condition, to local youth 👦🏻👧🏻👦🏻👧🏻groups that have outdoor 🏖🛣🏞 programs

Note: Photos shown in this blog post & without watermark of www.siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com were obtained from Google🌐search
