Converting a 30 degree sleeping bag to an underquilt

Looking for advice here, I plan to turn a 30 degree sleeping bag into an underquilt.
Supplies needed:
8 cord locks
1/8 inch shock cord 18 feet or more
2 s beaners
18 feet of 2 1/4 Grosgrain ribbon

Using the Grosgrain ribbon make channels on all 4 edges of sleeping bag, thread the shock cord in each of the 4 channels. Apply the 2 s beane
rs on the long sides of the bag. This is how I envision currently turning my 30 degree sleeping bag into a UQ. While this may not live up to an entry for the 30 degree UQ, I need your input. :D


Any day in the outdoors is better than a day at work.
