#1 on my list

I follow a lot of crafty/sewing blogs, and those blogs feature other blogs, and those blogs have guest tutorials from other blogs.  Needless to say I have a HUGE list of things I love and want to make.  There is a list of the "someday ones"..and there is a list of the.."have to make it this week ones"!

Looking at my ever growing list, I keep coming back to this will be my Top Priority, numero uno, #1 thing to make asap (or soon anyways)!
We seriously need a new duvet cover.  We have a  Ralph Lauren comforter that I got about 4 or 5 years ago at the Polo outlet in Hilsboro.  It is still sooo comfy and in great shape...except..I bought it in a solid cream color.  After the last couple of trips to the dry cleaners, I realized that sucker is not going to come back perfectly cream anymore.  So, I plan on making a duvet cover for my bed using an Anthropologie type tutorial using just bed sheets and sewing skills!
I will either do the gathered one pictured above, click here for tutorial.
 or this one with added ruffle below, click here for tutorial.
I will NOT be using white or cream, most likely gray or navy.
I'll take pictures along the way and give little tips and tricks if I find anything that makes it easier.  Overall it should be a pretty easy sewing process..just time consuming.  Wish me luck!
