Here is the lap duvet I made for my friend’s wedding!I followed the instructions from purl soho. It is a super fluffy and soft throw sized blanket that will be perfect for my friends to cuddle under on chilly nights, or to use in a comfy chair.
The only “quilt”-like aspect are the tufting stitches. To make those, I just used a small zig-zag stitch and dropped my feed dog so the blanket wouldn’t go anywhere. The tutorial was correct in that this project probably only took a couple of hours start to finish. The only difficult thing was clearing out a space big enough to lay every thing down, both for cutting and pinning where the tufting stitches would go.
I used two lightweight cottons for the shell – the stripey one is a voile, and so soft and thin, while the solid gray is lawn, so a little thicker and almost feels like a really nice bed sheet. I’m so happy with how it turned out – it is just so cozy. I really hope my friends love it. My boyfriend is really sad we’re not keeping it, so I’m thinking another one will be in the works shortly!
Until next time,
