Time for bed

A couple of weeks ago I sewed together some pink fabric and made four pillow cases! This weekend it was time to make the matching shabby chic duvet covers.

I used second hand bed fabric as material, so the whole project was about 65 SEK (about 9 dollars) for two duvet covers. The material was a finished duvet cover with pink and white stripes that I un-stitched all around. I matched each side with a old fashioned sheet with lace on the top, that I folded to show the lace like they used to in old times. I’m pleased with the result.

New duvet covers
I ‘m not sure that the pink stripes are not “to much”, but I like the white sheet very much, and now it won’t move away like it would if I had just folded it around a quilt. Maybe I will add buttons later?

The whole picture
Here you get the big picture. And I’m not at all tired of the bed post fabric that we put up a year ago! I love my pink jungle!

Good night, sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite!

  1. Actually the website listed is my husbands, but he’s far more talented than I!! I’m his sherpa and childherder. I love your creativeness. It inspires me!! I have a secret job of shaking down the second hand stores. They see me coming and give up the goodies when I walk through the door. I love LOVE recycling, and I love what you have done with your duvet covers. Makes my heart warm to see old things get new love. I stumbled across your blog and I feel that I am a LUCKY girl. Thanks for the good karma. xo CHER, slave to yarn and fabric
