Marcy's winter bedscape
inspired by A ’50’s vintage painting found at the PARIS flea market.
One of my favorite sewing rituals is to make a fresh seasonal bed-scape - a duvet cover and pillowcases.
The 'recipe' is simple. Choose two harmonious fabrics for the duvet, one for the front, one for the back. Shown here I’ve used two Japanese fabrics: Black Windows and Lexington Dots for the duvet and Liberty cottons from my stash for the pillow cases.

A traditional unisex apron for industrious demands. Choose canvas or denim for a classic workwear feel, or a linen or cotton for wearing everyday around the house. The workaday has 3 pockets, and a waist and neck tie that can be lengthened or shortened as needed.
See Marcy's version in denim here - topstitched in acid yellow green, using a sharp topstitching needle, two threads in the needle, a long stitch and the 'stretch' stitch (2 stitches back, one forward). Made the bib and width wider for more coverage and added a loop for a towel.
Now I want more than one, so have created a collection of fabrics to use. Go classic or go wild - makes a great gift for your favorite cook!
