She’s Crafty: Coming Along Quite Nicely


Last night I began to sew my duvet in earnest, and here’s what I have so far:

gathery goodness, non?

A few notes: If you are going to do this project, be careful as you gather the fabric.  if you pull too hard it will rip (mine did three times!).  I suggest having a nice glass of wine (white, so as not to stain your duvet) and watch a movie as you pull together the gathers… It helps to make the tediousness of the gathering go by faster.

It is also important to make sure that after you gather the sheets, they still need to measure at least 80 inches.

That’s all I have for now.

  1. Katie, It also helps to loosen up the tension on your machine so that you have very loose stitches to gather….doing a long stitch is helpful but loosening the stitches is even better.

    • I have it on the loosest stitch possible, but I still broke them because I was impatient… I’ve gotten better at gathering them since having taken up this project, so that’s good. : )
