This duvet cover's fluid texture is created with layered cotton gauze.
DIY Wood Drawer Wall Shelf
I have made duvet covers from sets of twin bed sheets. I used the flat sheets to make the duvet cover, and now have the blue and orange fitted sheets and pillowcases, which I alternate in the wash each week. Very economical way to create two different sets of linen.
Worked really nicely and its the perfect size cheaper too! I am working on a duvet cover right now. Definitely cheaper-but this quilting is going to take me a little while: Going to make some quilted shams to match. You totally read my mind! I wish I could have read this two weeks ago when I tried making mine. It looks a little…handmade: Good thing buying flat sheets is cheap! Thank you so much for these sewing installments. I just registered for a beginners sewing machine for our wedding.
I have been bookmarking them all in hopes that I can begin soon! I like this idea. That adds up quickly. The problem I have been having is the size of the duvet covers in the stores. They are all too short to cover the mattress and box spring. I figure I will need roughly 10 yards and two twin sheets for the bottom.
Just last week I mentioned to my husban that maybe I could just make a duvet…this is perfect timing! I have made duvet covers too. My problem is the shifting of whenever I put inside! Apologies if this is a silly question — I am inexperienced at sewing.
What great step-by-step instructions with pictures! Does anyone have any suggestions for good places in the Metro-Chicago area to buy vintage fabric like Brett mentioned?? Used to work for Restoration Hardware—they use 2 quilts to make them fluffy…. Thank you for this series! I love that you show everything step by step and make your instructions really clear!
And maybe a cushion cover, oh and of course some curtains…. I am so excited about this post!! Let the sewing begin. I can answer that question Natasha. I recommend a rotary cutter. I also agree with Maggie up there on the cost issue.
Joann does have cute fabric but it wont last as long. If you buy flat sheets and sew together you may find that you are not saving as those flat sheets are most often matched with a Duvet cover in the same fabric.
But its nice to be able to sew your own! Thank you, I have wanted to do this for so long! There is simply a 2 foot opening along the bottom seam, and you stuff the comforter in there. It stays in just fine. Im thinking of buying a cheap cotton fabric and dying it a lovely yellow — exciting!!
Has anyone ever tried using some fleece fusible webbing in a situation like this? OR does someone have any other suggestions? Thank you, thank you! I nearly jumped for joy when I saw this!!! I love duvet covers. I love changing the look of my bedroom constantly and I love that I now have a simple solution with a major customization ability at hands! I have never heard it pronounced and have only read the word on crafting sites.
This is so fantastic. I am redoing my bedroom, and had thought about this several times, now I can see it is a possibility. Any chance bedskirts will also be in the picture soon, for a how to?
Snap tape is basically twill tape with both sides of the snaps already affixed. All you have to do is sew it on. My mother made me an awesome duvet cover for college many years ago out of two Indian bed-spreads. The snap tape made it so much less labor intensive and the duvet cover was beautiful! Good tutorial…French seams are a lot of work and really work well for lightweight fabrics. Anything heavier than standard quilting weight fabric, and you get some bulky seams.
I was just telling my husband earlier today how incredibly frustrated I was with the price and selection of duvets and how I wanted to make my own! I should have just put the link to the set of pictures, which shows all the details too…. Now I know what to address as soon as I get a moment to sit down and learn! If sewing is your thing then be forewarned the fabric section is addictive! Thank you so much for sharing! I have been debating on whether or not to make a new duvet cover for our master bedroom.
I made one of these using a vintage, thrift store sheet. Thanks for the great tutorial. Also, I highly recommend using sheets; they can be so much cheaper than fabric and no need to piece the panels together.
Yes, the straight sewing is easy. I used a sheet for the under side, and I actually cut the underside while serging! So, remember to manage the layers and mass of fabric. In college, my roomate made us duvet covers from sheet sets and I was very impressed with her sewing skills.
Today our website is featuring duvet covers for Dog and Cat beds from Molly Mutt. Thank you so much! Could you do a tutorial for a stitched-through blanket as well? Thank you for your easy to follow instructions. I just posted this on my blog and linked it back to you. Now, what we need to accompany this is a tutorial on making pillowcases for the bedroom I mean, pillowcases for standard sleeping pillows …pretty please?
SO far no sharp accidents!!! Thanks for the tutorial! I would love to see a tutorial on making a tailored bedskirt for a four poster bed. I made a duvet once and it was nice, but would have benefited from the french seams. It was Flannel on one side, made wit a Flannel sheet.
Thank you so much for posting this tutorial. As I type, my sister is finishing a duvet cover for my daughter out of fabric left over from her first birthday party.
Your help made this a much easier and prettier-looking DIY. Wow, I really love this Sewing series. I would judge it based on the project and the individual fabrics you are purchasing. Very skillfully these tips are elaborated and it is really very interesting to learn thews sewing skills.
Thank you so much for this detailed post. I just finished the project using two flat sheets, and I think the french seams take it to a whole other level! Sheets are great for the size but those wrinkles are so hard to get rid of! I was hoping to add a ribbon border to the top for a little detail Right now its just white —any suggestions?
The pictures make it easy to follow. With the right fabric and good sewing machine, you can make a high quality duvet cover. More of these please! There are dozens of tutorials for that. I have the fabric I want to use for my duvet and the same idea of how to piece it together. These are wonderful directions. I am getting ready to make a duvet and I was looking at your site for making your own and I had a question the question is If you use a flat sheets would you stillhave to have the side pieces or would you just use the two sheets,.
I found this while trying to come up with something to get for my sons. I need the sturdyness with two boys. Plus i wanted upholstery quality, not quilting…. The supplies cost me CAD…so while certainly not cheaper, it will be closer to what I want. I spent Thanksgiving weekend sewing up a duvet using your directions, more or less I used upholstery-weight fabric for the top, a sheet for the bottom, fiddled around with the back to make an envelope-type closing like you see on pillow shams.
The result is here. Every town seems to have a mill-end store selling home decorating fabrics at a discount — I highly recommend those for a variety of wide-width fabrics at good prices. I am going to try this Duvet. The best instructions I have seen. Also the french seam is something I will try.
This is my first time on this site. I will be back freguently. Hi — Thank you so much for the French seam trick — I looooove having the edges all tucked under neatly!
The instructions and pictures are excellent, so clear and easy to follow. A money saving suggestion: If you want to use expensive fabric on the topside, there is usually a selection of wide lightweight quilting muslin at many of the fabric shops — can use the muslin on the back and will save time because not seaming the back. Thank you for the fabulous tutorial! This is what I came up with: This is such an amazing tutorial! If you could give me some measurements, that would be great!
Both carry the muslin, which quilters use for baking, in white and some JoAnn stores carry in a colors. When using muslin, as well as any fabric, be sure to wash and dry before cutting and sewing — muslin does shrink a little in that first launder.
I bought the fabric for it last year after finishing the first one for master bedroom. It turned out so well, I knew the guest bedroom needed one too! Thanks so much for the great directions! I dont own a sewing machine. How about just large press buttons along all sides or even the ribbon idea? Do you think if I use King sheets to cover a queen comforter would be fine?
Can you teach how to keep comforter from moving inside? On other hand I will use the designing and colors of few of them in my duvet covers. Martha Stewart has a simple solution for holding the duvet in place. When you attach the snaps at the bottom, will they show through to the top of the comforter.
Or do you fold in the hem? Having a very wide selection of colors, styles, patterns and sizes is critical. Remember, bed linens come in a variety of weaves and materials, and depending on the season, you might need to look for a specific fabric to ensure optimum comfort.
Cotton is great for the hot summer months, but corduroy or micro suede would be much better for winter. Looking for something special like hypoallergenic, thermal-regulated, or wrinkle-resistant?
