So I used one of the covers as a template, a duvet cover, some bias binding and hey presto!
I even re-used the Ikea wadding and cord! Unfortunately I'm out of Insul Brite (heat resistant wadding) so I put in an extra layer of thick wadding I've had kicking around underneath the Ikea wadding.
Now my first attempt (see the flat one?) turned out beautifully, because I sewed the binding on without the cording, thinking I could thread the cording into the casing using a safety pin!
|Please excuse my mis-matched bias binding! I ran out of green!|
So for the 2nd cover, I sewed the bias binding onto the front of the cover, flipped it over and then sewed in the cording at the same time as sewing down the binding. Not as neat a finish, but completely functional!
Now my question to you lovely, clever readers! Is there any way I can thread the cording into the casing of my first cover, without having to unpick it all and sew it in the 2nd way?
