Sewing Sleeping Bag Slipcovers

My sister is retiring from 20 years in the Air Force and they frequently drink Crown Royal. Well, she gave me a whole laundry basket full of them and asked me to make two sleeping bag covers. It took forever to cut the bags apart and pull out the strings. Then I used my rotary cutter and tried to make them into similar size rectangles to sew together. I used 5 spools of thread on this project! No, I wasn't weaving!!!! Anyhow, velcro is used to secure them in case they need to get out of their sleeping bags quickly. I guess our military works hard, and when they have time to play, they play hard. I've never had Crown Royal and don't care if I never see another bag in my life!
