the robot duvet cover

I was rather excited when I spied this robot duvet cover on the clearance shelf in that little boutique we all know! This was now a fair few months ago, just as Patch was moving to his single bed. I then tried to find a second duvet cover that Patch (I!) liked, but they seemed so very expensive. So I made one from some oh-so-soft red gingham, and that went on the bed. It wasn't until a washday, still a few months ago, that I realised when changing Patch's bedding that the robots just didn't fit. I still don't know whether because of peculiar duvet - though it was sold simply as a single - or was this the reason the robots were in the boutique in the first place?

Robots then sat in my work basket for more months. I promise I did wash Patch's only duvet cover in these months, but it was a little tiresome having to dry to put straight back on the bed. I don't know why I didn't sort out those robots before, it really was a simple sewing of two strips of yet more red gingham to each side to make fit. Patch loves his robots...

And a peek at Patch's newly decorated bedroom. Thank you Grandpa! Robots, vintage cars, cowboys... they all get mixed together. Just need to finish a few things (curtain pole, curtains and storage) then shall share some more of this sweet room!
