depends on what kind of animation it would be...will he be hopping around in the bag? Or slithering around the ground? Or maybe just sleeping?

well, pretty much just sleeping. there is a part when he sits up and reaches for an object tho.

so no complications then really. Just apply a skin to your sleepbag model the same as you do the character.

Are you working in 3ds max? If so, try the Skin Wrap modifier. It will make the sleeping bag conform to the characters skin, for example....could be cool if his feet are moving inside the bag, etc.
Be sure to post something when once you have it working! :)
