I fell for Tiki with a full metal zipper

Would you take this fabulous Tiki fabric to the thrift store?

Tiki with fake batik print. It sure caught my eye!

I’m glad someone did–because now it’s MINE. (Okay, it will eventually end up at The Vintage Bazaar so YOU can adopt it.)

It’s got sturdy twill ties.

And a full metal zipper.

It’s showing its age. How old? I’d guess maybe 1950s or 1960s.

I love the contrasting orange satin lining.

And it still has its original, matching cover. It’s the coolest sleeping bag I’ve ever seen.

Want to go camping? How about just a sleepover? Plus it unzips completely flat so you could use it as a blanket, too.

Have you ever seen a sleeping bag like this? I’d love to hear about it!
