Remember when I posted here about my flea market finds in my hometown? I shared with you that I was obsessed with this fabric.
I kept thinking about the fabric. I was dying for a project to use it but I really didn’t need it for my house. I wouldn’t past me to redesign a whole room based on fabric I have bought but to be honest, I don’t have the energy or the funds so I just let the fabric go…for about a week. I was out on a Saturday looking for the Hub’s sis’ birthday present. Then I light went off in my head and I remembered a conversation that she and I had at Christmas. She saw this post on my blog:
And at Christmas asked me to make her a duvet cover for her bedroom. She has a black bed and a red dresser and I thought that this fabric (that is grey, creme, and lime green) would be perfect. If you add in some deep teal you could have a home run. Here was the moodboard in my head.
I made the duvet cover just like I did this one here.
So if you want to know how to make a duvet cover then read those instructions there. My sis-in-law’s bed is a queen sized bed. A queen Sized Duvet is 90X90. I always make mine 95 X95 just so it can hang down a little more. The comforter always seems to fit. When I was done, I searched through my fabric remnants and had some leftover grey from my headboard in my guest bedroom so I whipped up a few pillow shams the size of a normal bed pillow. I used this method that I posed about here. Here is what her bed looked like when we put it on her bed.
She went to target and added some more frills.
I gave my mom-in-law a duvet for Christmas. Christmas was celebrated at my house so I never got to see the duvet in action. I never blogged about it because it was a Christmas present. My mom-in-law is a faithful reader so I couldn’t spoil the surprise. When we went to Nashville I got to see it in action:
Its modern, fun and colorful and looks good with her house.
Have you guys sewed any gifts for anyone lately? Please do tell. Also, please forgive me this week if I am late posting or I miss a Rehab life Post. Its wedding week and it is DIY Grand Central Station at my house. I am loving every minute of it.
