I decided I’d make my husband a present a while back and as he isn’t really into patchwork and flowery fabrics but is a Dr Who fan I tried to buy some Dr Who fabric. This wasn’t easy to find and when I did it was very expensive! Spoonflower have some really good Dr Who fabric but I didn’t want to spend that much!! So anyway as I was trawling through ebay I came accross a Dr Who duvet cover and pillow set for sale! It was from Next and was advertised as in really good condition so in a flurry of excitement I made a bid! Amazingly only 1 other person bid and I immediately upped my bid and won the auction. Woo Hoo!
Well the gamble paid off as the fabric was in beautiful condition and had a tardis on the front and some daleks and a cyberman too!
So first I cut out the Dalek from the pillow case and sewed it up stuffed it with an old duvet filling. It makes a really nice cushion!
Next I cut the bottom of the duvet off and sewed it onto another piece of fabric to create a pocket and made a tool belt!
End result is happy hubby! I am not sure though if I have done anything wrong by using the fabric. I think I can’t sell things like this but I presume it’s ok for home use only. Anyone know?
Well I’m off to Handmade Monday to see what everyone else is up to!
