Are you like me and have a special stack of pretty fabric that you can’t bear to cut into? Especially that soft stuff like flannel, shot cotton, or double gauze? knits even? That’s the story behind these fabrics. I just could not make myself cut them apart into pieces. They look too amazing as one uncut piece. The solid color shot cottons were too soft and cozy to make into anything other than these happy lap duvets.
I’ve made this Purl Soho lap duvet project before, with baby seal double gauze. Natalie loves it still. So when I was making room in my fabric shelf I pulled out these pieces to make into a couple lap duvets in hopes of gifting them to a couple upcoming babies. I so badly want to keep these to myself, but I think they’re going to be the perfect gift. I was surprised how quick they were to make. I remember the tacking taking quite a bit of time last time around. It went really quick thanks to the auto thread cutting feature on my sewing machine. And I was able to use up smaller pieces of wool batting scraps I had from other projects.
I might just have to make a few more – just thought of another baby that needs a gift! And divided baskets, too!
