Duvet Cover

Duvet CoverOne of my Christmas gifts from my parents this year was a lovely new duvet for my bed. (Click on the thumbnail to see a full-sized image.) As it was coverless, I spent this past weekend making my very first duvet cover for it!

I have to say that I’m very happy with how it turned out – only thing I don’t like about it was the fact that you can totally see the zipper because Walmart didn’t have any darker brown ones, and the neutral was the closest to what I was looking for. It was also my first time doing anything with zippers, and I totally broke a couple of needles on my sewing machine. Whoops!

I’m excited about it, really. In the next couple of months when I have some free time, I’m going to make myself a matching bed skirt, and possibly an accent pillow in the yellowish material. Then I’m thinking about getting something from blik for the walls when all of the sewing is all finished. How fun! My room is starting to look “grown up!” (Shock!)

    Nice work. I used the design for a duvet cover to make a little quilt. Everyone who sees it, loves it. It’s made up of 12 x 12 squares of t-shirts, and backed with a cotton knit sheet. All of my old favorite concert and vacation t-shirts made into a cozy blanket that I take with me on my travels.
