So last week I got my Threadbanger sewing machine!
As a first project I decided to use a Burda magazine pattern, and I used an old duvet cover so as not to destroy any good fabric. The duvet cover is actually quite lovely, it’s an off-white and has small, pale white dots all over it. You can only see them if you look closely. Instead of a zipper closure I used the snaps that were on the bottom of the duvet cover. It has two tiers and a lined top with straps at meet at the back.
