Deconstruction, reconstruction


These fabrics used to be stitched together in the form of a doona cover. Nobody loved it anymore and donated it to the charity shop.

I bought it, washed it, and set to picking and ripping my way through the seams and I now have four lovely pieces of fabric, and a nice harvest of cream buttons.

I got distracted after that...and I am already wearing some of it.


A happy sewing day.

I'll never look at a doona cover at the op shop in the same way ever again!

I'm with Cam. I hadn't thought of modern doonas in that way either. It's beautiful fabric. Cherrie
