So, what does any delusional sewer do? Why, get out the scissors and start cutting, of course!
Here is the way the comforter started. Very simple and sweet.
The panels are made from one of the sheet sets. Behind the stripe fabric is a white fabric to give it more body when on the bed. I even got up the nerve to try my hand at making my own bias tape from the solid sheets. Sew some rope in the bias and you get piping for a little something extra.
This picture was taken in our previous home. Funny thing is, if I were to take a picture of the new diggs, the only difference would be the color of the walls. Paint will be applied as soon as windows can be opened without freezing our little booties off.
