I recently purchased two new duvet covers for the beds. One king size and one double.
They have the ubiquitous cats on of course. lol
But the best thing about this purchase was the packaging.
When I took the cardboard inner's out I was struck by the size of them and thought they might make covers for my 'Fabric Journal's' that are still in the making.
Photobombed by yours truly, Polly.
As you can see the larger one is the perfect size for six double sided pages and just needs to be covered.
This amount fits in just right and the others I have made can go into the smaller one.
All covered in plastic to keep them clean.
I haven't fixed the elephant or tiny flowers down yet, I'll do that when I finish but so that you can see the effect I've placed them where they will go.
There's more to do on this page yet but I'm happy with it so far even if the old eyes are suffering a bit, lol
I thought for sure the inside packaging was going to be confiscated by one of the cats. This is a much better use for it and it looks like they were made for your pages. The fit is perfect. Love the paisleys on your latest page. You are so good at stitching.ReplyDelete
It's nice when things work out so well. What an amazing journal it will be! I really like the paisley design too.ReplyDelete
perfect for your needs and recycled for the needs of our planet. what could be better?ReplyDelete
Brilliant and very ecologically-minded! I also love your cat duvets. :)ReplyDelete
The cardboard is perfect.ReplyDelete
What a great idea this was! I ADORE this paisley page!! It is bold and colorful, while still being refined and having perfect color combinations. You are truly a genius with this.ReplyDelete

Only a fool would be interested in "joining this great organisation". So no "Regards!!!" for you matey. Go to hell!Delete
A perfect fit. I always keep those cardboard inners as they always come in useful. I use one when I am frying. They fit around the back of the stove to catch fat splatters and can easily be thrown away and a new one used next time. Your use is much better though. I do love all your work. Hope Tom is doing o.k.ReplyDelete
It's nice to see you getting enthused about your craft work again.ReplyDelete
Serendipity! Perfect size.ReplyDelete
Your work is so beautiful. I look forward to seeing how you finish the covers and anchor the pages.
P. S. And -- CAT DUVETS! I haven't shopped for bedding for years, so I had no idea you could get such a thing! lolReplyDelete
Your work is always a pleasure to see and those cat duvets are darling!ReplyDelete
Wow, love the paisley!ReplyDelete
The re use of cardboard for the cover of your fabric journal is a great idea. Will you cover it, with paper? or fabric? It will compliment your embroidery to give you a keepsake for ever.ReplyDelete
It's amazing how many cat related items you can buy now. When I had my mobile shop, Mr Puss, I used to love going to the wholesalers around Manchester to see what I could find, anything with a cat on it. I loved setting out my stall to see it all on display.
It's going to be such a beautiful fabric journal. I love the cat duvet covers too.ReplyDelete
Love the duvet covers and your embroidery is exquisite! xReplyDelete
What great recycling of the cardboard. The duvet cover is sweet.ReplyDelete
I have a habit of keeping packaging - it always comes in handy - love the paisley xReplyDelete
