I was given a pink floral and lacy duvet cover, and as pink is not my favourite colour (not that I was ungrateful for the donation I might add) it was dutifully washed, cut into usable pieces and put away till I got my head round as to what to do with it. As it turned out that did not take very long, the first thing I made was some bunting for Poppy (my grand daughter's) new bedroom, seeing as she loves pink, so 15 flags in all and I even used the lace that came with the original duvet cover, well would be rude not to really.
Then the The Great British Sewing Bee popped onto our screens and Poppy saw the smocked dress and said she loved it and could she have one! I rummaged through my materials and finally came up with some blue & lilac floral and a good match in a plain lilac. Poppy of course wanted a pink one, that at least should have been a good cue for me to remember the duvet! well it didn't, and now I am actually glad my memory chose not to remind me, as this combination worked well together, and have to say Pops loves it and she does look cute in it. I have no idea how long it is since I last smocked and I had forgotten how much fun it is (once you get the tension right that is). Should I be worried that I keep forgetting things?
Have you made anything with your duvet? please share would love to see your creations.
