I've committed myself to a sewing project. Not embroidery, sewing.
I'm sure I can do it. I managed to do the Poang chair covers, I'm sure I can manage this. Especially as I'm cheating.
I bought some fabric from Calico Kate in Lampeter. It's lovely, chickeny fabric. I unpacked it from my overnight bag whilst in my bedroom, and I had a sudden idea about making a duvet cover from it.
I thought about this in some detail over the weeks following my purchase, and I thought about what was good and what was bad about the idea. The main bad idea was cost. When I calculated the cost for enough fabric to make a superking sized duvet cover, it made my eyes water. Plus, the fabric wasn't wide enough so I'd have to pattern match...
And then I had a brainwave.
I only bought a metre originally, as I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. There wasn't any point in buying just another single metre as I'd have to join them, I might as well buy 2 metres. And that meant I still had my original metre to do something else with. Or, more realistically, to look at it and stroke occasionally.
It's a common problem.
Not just me.
Anyway, in the sale I bought a white percale flat king sized flat sheet, and a teal Tencel Superking sized flat sheet. When it arrives, I will have everything I need. I WILL make this duvet cover.
I need to wash the fabric first in case it shrinks.I'd better do that today, otherwise that'll be an excuse for me not to get on with it.
