Capas de Édredon :: Duvet Covers


A meu ver, um dos grandes confortos do dia-a-dia é uma cama feita de lavado. Lençóis 100% algodão (ou linho!), bem esticados, a cheirar a sol e, de preferência, brancos. Em Portugal ainda é relativamente fácil e acessível comprar lençóis de óptima qualidade, mas na Nova Zelândia nem por isso. Há uns tempos falei-vos na capa de édredon que fiz para a nossa cama — funciona tão bem que voltei a fazer outras duas.

Se vier a fazer mais uma, já decidi que, em vez de aplicar o bordado em cima do lençol, vou cosê-lo de lado — assim.


As far as I’m concerned, one of the great comforts of everyday life is sleeping on clean sheets in a freshly made bed. Pure cotton (or linen!) sheets, taut and crisp, preferably white and with that lovely smell of having been dried out in the sun. In Portugal it’s still fairly easy and affordable to buy great quality bedding but in New Zealand… not so much. A few months ago I told you about the duvet cover I made for our bed — I like it so much that I’ve already sewn two more.
 


If I ever make another one, I think I’ll stitch the trimmings sideways rather than on top — just like this one here.
