A while back I had talked about the duvet covers I was sewing for the boys rooms. The first one took me weeks to do, with the help of Joyce, my sewing instructor of course. The second one went faster. and I felt the sewing was better too. I guess practice really does make perfect, and I use "perfect" loosely. I still needed help from Joyce, but I was able to do more on my own than I expected.
I was nervous about doing button holes, and I think you can probably understand. But it went smoothly, I did them myself at Joyce's house. She stood by in case I panicked.
This is the top of the duvet with button closures.
The duvet is reversible, and I used the embellishment that was already on the sheets for the backside. This way if I did use the reverse side it wasn't just a "plain" sheet.
