Hi. Long time, no see.
Okay so things have been crazy. But we have some good shit going on in Casa de CSD. Some non-house related summer fun shit. But some fantastic house shit. So let’s get to it, shall we?
once in a while week or so, there in a conversation like this that happens in our house:
In the words of every person I ever interview for any position in my day job: my biggest weakness is that I am just TOO enthusiastic.
And so – not infrequently – I get a look from Michelle that says (more clearly than any words ever could) “Bitch You Crazy” (BYC).
Side note – she is not incorrect about 50% of the time.
Most recently, that look came when I turned to Michelle and said to her that I thought we needed to make a cover. For our duvet. With a sewing machine.
I gave a lot of reasons for this decision. These included:
- It will give us a sense of accomplishment that we made our duvet!
- It will allow us to totally personalize and have an original cover for our bed!
- It will save us money!
For the record, number 3 ends up being totally false. Like totally. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a damn liar. And you can tell them I said this. Unless they are scary and might hurt me. I am not saying you cannot make a duvet cover on the cheap. But when you are like Michelle and I and walk into a fabric store saying “let’s find something on sale – let’s find something on sale – let’s find something on sale – OOH! LOOK AT THE BEAUTIFUL FABRIC!!!!” – you are not making a cheap duvet cover.
How did it turn out? You be the judge:
How did I do it? I followed one very good Design Sponge post word for word. Like obsessively. And it did not lead me astray.
Is it perfect? Two words: Hell. No.
Do I love it? Oh my god, yes. It is like my child. I am so proud (and probably at least a little pathetic).
Does it make me want to sew other shit? Ummm, yes. Other duvet covers? Uh huh! Curtains? Of course! All-season water-proof bomber-style jacket for one Carmen Sandiego? Check check CHECK!
