Recycling Dr Who!!

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!

  1. This is really great use of the fabric. No wonder your husband is pleased. Even if you can’t use fabric like this you still have some great patterns for useful items. Hope you have a great week 🙂

  2. Am loving what you’ve done with the duvet cover! As Wendy says, I don’t think there would be a problem with using the fabric as long as you’re not selling it.
    Hope you have a good week!
