Sunday Stash – Red, Pink & Aqua

September 20, 2009 at 7:48 pm 3 comments



This gem of a piece is handprinted by the lovely and talented Shannon Lambden, otherwise known as  aunty cookie who designs a whole range of fabrics and other products with her whimsical illustrations.  I’d been thinking about ordering a little something from her when I saw this panel available and knew it was the one.  My girls have decided (Rather, Suzannah decided with some direction from me and Izzy nodded her head sweetly in agreement) that they want their room to be red, pink and aqua.  I am only too happy to oblige and soon I’ll be making a duvet cover from these little lovlies….I especially love the tulips and the oversized flowers.  This is going to be fun.  Though, I have no experience making a duvet cover.  Note to self, figure out how to make duvet cover for daughters.  Please advise, early and often!

    Beautiful fabrics! Red + aqua = my favourite colour combo :)

    When I made a duvet cover for myself, I just sewed a wide hem on one side of each piece (the top and bottom) and then sewed the two pieces right sides together but not all the way across on the side with the hem. I finished it off by adding buttons and buttonholes to the hemed edges.

    I also added snaps in the corners of the cover on the inside and to corners of the duvet so that it all stayed put. I’ve also seen some with ties sewn into the corners for the same reason.

    I love the little ducks (or swans)!
