Not-so-boring bedlinen

Singapore, Singa...






After a mind-stretching, finger-boggling project, my brain just shut down and I needed my next to be terribly, terribly simple.

What could be simpler than minimal math (rectangles with cut-out corners), a few long straight seams, and some elastic casing…

…and I had biiiig projects ready to fill my room :):)

They did not actually take very little time – the seams are after all really quite long, but it was mind-numbingly therapeutic for the couple of weekends it took me.

The little girls are sooper-dooper happy. I dug into my stash and hit all the themes they’re into now – hippos mattress covers, Mr Men and planetary pillowcases.

Major stash-busting love!

Material Notes

Cotton, cotton and more cotton!
The red hippo one and the vegetable garden (so cute!) one are from Ikea.

      Thank you! I had no trouble making them go to bed for a couple of weeks after I put these on. Sadly it’s now back to square one!

      Thank you Mary! I wanted to give them a nice surprise so I put everything new on at the same time and changed the room completely! Happy new year to you and your daughter and granddaughter too!

      Thank you! If they hadn’t been so pleased with the new linen I wouldn’t have been able to con them into letting me take that shot :)
