Such a bad idea to drape my linen over a lamp, however accidental it was (no I was not smoking!) I am going to mend it.
Once you've found a suitable patch (best to use self-fabric if you can) fold in the edges. Mitering is the neatest way to do the corners.
Pin it in place on both sides so it doesn't shift while you're sewing it.
I chose to do this by hand. An agreeable form of penance, and an apology to my cover for not looking after it better. It is actually stronger to machine triple-stitch, easier too!
All done! The new fabric will lighten with time, and the duvet cover will wear its honorable scar proudly.
