"Retro" Doona Cover

I have had some blue floral cotton fabric from the 1980s in my cupboard for a long time. It was actually two cotton double bed sheets that were used for camping/travelling. The cotton was lovely and thick and soft, really great quality, and had stood the test of time really well. I was suddenly inspired to make a donna cover out of it. I sewed two white fabric panels down each side to bring it to queen size, and sewed right around, leaving customary end opening for the doona, I didn't bother with any fasteners. Its beautiful to sleep under just by itself on a hot night too.
