I have thought about altering a bag I have. I sleep on my front so usually turn the bag upside down so the hood is over my head rather than burying my face in it. I also find sleeping bags can be a bit restrictive for my arms. I have an old Blacks Icelandic that I have used a few times by opening the short zip and having that underneath me so the bag is on its side. This is more comfortable but the bag doesn't have a hood and is heavy.
I had thought of taking a cheap down 2 season bag I have and shifting the down to the base, removing the side zip and sewing that side up and then putting a short slit down the front with no zip. This would be more of a quilt design and suit my sleeping position better.
However, everytime I look at it the amount of work involved puts me off and I get worried about all the down exploding as soon as I open it up I also wonder whether having so much of the down on the top and sewn up sides whether this would leave cold spots at the side.
