So back this time last year, I decided to make a patchwork duvet. I went out and spent loadsss of money on material and layed it all out in a particular way so there were no colours the same next to each other. Then as usual, I just got bored and fed up and left it at that. Then a few months ago I managed to sew two rows together but then I got all frustrated with it (I’d never used a sewing machine before so had no idea what I was doing even with the help of my mum) but then a couple months ago I managed to actually get a grip and finish it! I meant to post this months ago but I only just remembered to actually take some pictures of it – complete with a sleepy Mr. Toff :)
It’s actually just loads of squares of material sewn together then sewn on top of a plain white Ikea duvet set as I could barely even sew the few strips of fabric together haha! I wanted it to have more of a neater look than traditional patchwork quilts and I really like how it came out. I’m considering buying a whole load of scraps of material off ebay and making a few more, but I think I’ll do littler squares and make them a bit more ‘messy’ looking! :)
Hi! I'm April and this is my little space to share our adventures through the UK, travels across the world, love of cooking and everything else in between (and sometimes, my crazy cat lady tendencies)!
All of my photos are taken by me unless otherwise stated. If you would like to use my photos anywhere else, all I ask is that you state where you got the image (aprileveryday) provide a link back to my blog (www.aprileveryday.com), and if you're feeling super nice, let me know in an e-mail :)
