Do you suffer from fabric addiction?
If yes, than you probably have a scrap pile that mimics Everest. Or is this just me?

I decided to put an end to the madness and use up quite a bit of that ol' scrap pile on these duvet covers.
 I used snaps at the end on the first one ---
and satin ribbons on the other.

I like the mismatched feel to the first one. (It was on purpose.)

Some of these pieces are re purposed clothes.

 Snaps keep the blanket inside the cover.

A duvet  from the French duvet [dyˈvɛ] "down"), is a type of bedding — a soft flat bag traditionally filled with down or feathers, or a combination of both, and used on a bed as a blanket...

Don't laugh, I didn't know what "duvet" REALLY meant until living here in Europe.
I knew it was like a bedspread, but what exactly....I wasn't sure. I know, how uncultured of me.

Do I see Mickey Mouse?

Oh, I see-- it's my chickens.

What will you make with your scrap bits?
Or "remnants" I suppose is a better word, much more civilized sounding.       :o)


  1. I love your duvet covers! It's just that 'mis-match' that makes them so irresistable!
    I wouldn't mind at all to have a look in your closet with remnants.. Many lovely colors and prints there!

  2. This is a gorgeous duvet! What a great way to use up those beautiful scraps!


I appreciate every comment, thanks so much for taking the time. It means A LOT to me. :)
