From mother to daughter and back again

Postby JabberJabber » Fri Jan 08, 2016 11:09 am

When I was very little my mum made a duvet cover for me. She make it in a lovely pattern, like you would do with a quilt, and used pieces of fabric from the maternity clothes she wore when she was pregnant with me.

I have loved his duvet cover since she made it for me and it came with me to whichever house and place I lived and was used regularly until I was about 20.

Sadly, as this was now made around 35 years ago, it is now starting to fall apart and cant be used on a bed any longer.

As this has such sentimental value to me, I can't juse get rid of it, so I've decided to frame some of it.

Image

I am framing a piece for my mum and adding some of my own decorations. I'm using buttons and fabric from things I have owned, so I'm adding things from my generation.

Image

I changed the pattern the buttons made. In the 1950's my grandmother embroidered a fireguard with a peacock that my mother now owns.

And the finished item

What a wonderful thing for your mum to have made. That's a fantastic idea to frame sections and give one to your mum. :love: Can't wait to see the finished product.

Oh stop you're making me :cry:

That is the most lovely idea - I've seen all the cute things with baby clothes but never with maternity clothes - just gorgeous :love: :love: :love: What a shame it is not usable anymore, but fantastic idea! Can you get a section to use as a lap blanket or similar for a while if there is a part that is still OK?
