So like oh probably 3.5 to 4 years ago I ran across a little magazine article from Marth Stewart on how to do pintucks. I also had seen a $300~ duvet cover at Anthropologie and loved it. So I bought thread, and a big King sheet for the Queen sized bed, and figured it would be a quick project. Then I got caught up in work.
Then I got pregnant, and one night before my first kid was born, I took the time to make all of the marks of where the pintucks would be… but that’s about it… because I’m a slacker.
So I brought it with me to Brasil, thinking I would have dead time to craft. Well I’m not crafty, and found many other things to fill the dead time with. Then came baby #2, and I realized that it was freaking about time, and well winter was coming up and our old duvet cover had been killed by the stupid thing that Brasilians try to pass off as a washer/dryer (seriously this thing eats my clothing).
And walla, my beautiful duvet. Not quite as equal to Anthropologies, as I spread out the pintucks, as I’m lazy, but pretty still the same.
