So here's a peek at my duvet cover made with a beautiful butterfly batik I found at Walmart quite a while ago... I can't remember when, but it must've been around the time I was into making shower curtains because there's only enough for a shower curtain. I had this, plus another similar butterfly batik (I must've forgotten about buying the first one), several sashiko medallions I had made, and some leftover linen/cotton from my wedding. The only thing I had to buy were 15 coconut buttons at 4/$1.00. Wow.
Here are the pillows I made to match the duvet cover.
These have invisible zipper openings, (see if you can find it in the first picture below), and the two different butterfly fabrics. I also used the last of my navy linen to make the piping. I had to use the second butterfly fabric when I ran out of the first. But boy... I like it! All of it was in my stash... including the zippers, so shopping my stash paid off! :D I'm happy!
I'm working on another set in barkcloth and linen for my daughter's bedroom and will include a better picture of my duvet cover and a simple tutorial next time.
