Looking to modernize or change up a bedroom? Can’t find the right duvet cover? Make one!!
I got this fun white and black fabric at Ikea and thought this project would be perfect – unfortunately, I didn’t have enough for one whole side. Who cares. I just added in some weaved white and grey fabric, and the back is all a fleece black – perfect for staying cozy.
What You Need
- 1 zipper as long as you like (mine is only 24 inches)
- 2 pieces of fabric 88×90 (my top piece is a combination of fabrics)
- matching thread
First, lay out your duvet to ensure that the 88×90 is right – you might have a shorter mattress (not all queens are the same length). Then, lay out your fabric to see if you like the layout.
I love it! So excited.
Now, the process is very similar to making a pillow case cover, just on a much, much grander scale.
If you’re using more than one piece for the top or bottom, serge all of those pieces first. Then, put in your zipper the same way you would in the pillow case tutorial. My zipper is short, but the duvet will still squish in, so not to worry.
Once you’re zipper is in, serge the whole duvet together. You’ll turn it right side out through the zipper.
Almost done! Iron all of your seams well.
Done, now you have a dual sided duvet!
Sew up and sleep well!
