I mentioned other day that I have been working on a doona cover for Rosie and I'm so happy with how it turned out!
I cut out twenty four squares,37cm squares, four across and six down. This seemed the right measurements for a single cover and did work out. In hindsight I could have made it a tiny bit longer.
When all the squares for sewn together I found a pretty pink vintage sheet and sewed that on the other side. Tomorrow I will make some ties from the scraps to finish it off.
It was a nice little project, a good one for easing myself back into sewing. Simple, colourful, straightforward, yep, my kind of project.
I like all the combinations of florals, they always end up looking good together.
It doesn't pay to agonise too much about what goes with what,
I think it's better, for me anyway, to jumble the patterns up and see what happens.
Otherwise it can look a little too orchestrated, too planned.
Know what I mean?
Anyway, Rosie is pretty happy with her new look bed, and Rainbow Snake seems to like it too.
So my next project will be..... another cover, for my beautiful Sunday girl!! I can't wait, it's so much fun playing with vintage linen and I love the look of the big patches of flowery colour. What are you up to on this fine Thursday? Are you playing along with Kirsty? I might just pop by and say hi, see you soon! xo
