Sunflower Duvet Cover Set by Le Vele- $115 at Bedroom Duvet Spot
Bob says no flowers in the bedroom… I wonder if I could get this past him?
Our bedroom is the weirdest room in the house. In the winter, it is very cold. We have a really fluffy comforter and a space heater and we’re still cold sometimes (well, I am since I’m very cold-natured). In the summer, it stays fairly comfortable because of the ceiling fan. Actually, it stays a little on the cold side for me. This summer, I broke down and put one of our fleece sheets on the bed over our cotton sheets to act as a light-weight blanket.
We don’t use our comforter during the summer. We completely remove it and put it away. Which means that when I make the bed (sometimes), all we have is sheets, no decoration. I started thinking that it would be nice if I could make a cover for our current comforter (had it 5 years and I’m sick of looking at it) that would be a 4-in-1.
- Just the cover, which would be able to be used alone for those really hot nights.
- The cover with a blanket in it for the spring and fall.
- The cover with the comforter in it for the winter.
- The cover with the comforter AND the blanket in it for those really cold nights.
What I didn’t realize was that all I really wanted was a duvet cover. I’ll admit that I’m clueless about that kind of stuff, I had no clue what a duvet cover was until I started researching, lol!
During my research, I found some great tutorials on DIY duvet covers, which are absolutely gorgeous!
Puckered White Duvet Cover- A DIY Tutorial- Uses sheets for the fabric
Dwell Duvet Cover DIY- Twin size using yardage (upholstery) fabric
DIY Duvet Cover- Using sheets again
DIY Pintuck Duvet- Sheets
Needless to say, I have to go shopping for sheets and a blanket to make this thing! I can’t use white…Milo, for one. He doesn’t get on the bed, but his fur ends up everywhere! Being black, it would show up really well on a white comforter. There’s also the fact that my current comforter is sage green, I’d be afraid of it showing through a white sheet.
Clone of Bob needs a duvet cover, too. His comforter got chewed up by one of the dogs a long time ago. It’s got a hole or two in it, plus it’s fading from so much use (he likes to wrap himself up like a mummy in the winter). Instead of buying him another comforter to abuse, I’ll just buy some flat sheets and make him a duvet cover for his bed.
Astronaut Duvet Cover- Not sure how much American $$ at Snurk
Too bad Clone of Bob is too old for this, it looks like so much fun!
I’ll be sure to post pics once I’ve gotten these things made. I’m so inspired, are you?!
