Born out of cool spring nights and chilly toes, the cuddly Lap Duvet has become one of my favorite fast projects. It’s a perfect way to highlight a unique fabric, and its simple construction makes it a total snap to sew! It’s also a great gift for so many occasions, a housewarming, a wedding, or even a baby shower!

This latest Flannel version is sophisticated and elegant, using a mix of subtle new Japanese Linen Blend Solids and ultra soft Ecrulet Flannel Stripes. The combination of fabrics is so plush and inviting that when I was all done, I felt like I had five puffy clouds on my desk. Everyone who walked by wanted to sink right into them! -Molly


  • 1 3/4-yards Ecrulet Flannel Stripes in Grey. (This particular fabric is no longer available, but please check out all of our current flannel fabrics for some great alternatives!)
  • 1 3/4-yards of a Kiyohara Linen Blend Solid. I used, from top to bottom in the materials pic above: Violet, Lavender, Denim, Light Beige, and Brown.
  • A crib sized Wool Batting
  • 100% cotton thread in color 3170. For this version of this project I used the same thread in the top and the bobbin.
