I got the bedspread done. Also valances, shower curtains, and recycled a valance done 20 yrs ago. Actually found the fabric from the valance, and made some more tab curtains using the 20yr old fabric as trim!
Had to rework the valance, but could see the differences between a cheaper mechanical machine, and the Pfaff 2170. Old machine wouldn't sew through thick spots-the Pfaff took it all in stride!
Now I need to make a duvet cover for a kingsize comforter. Whatever you buy is too short for a pillowtop king set, and the blankets hang out on the side. And it takes at least half a day to wash that comforter, even in a commercial machine.
I neet to extend the sides at least 12-18" for the drop. Was thinking of adding separate panels to sides and bottom. Has anyone tried this?
