Making A Duvet Cover
Decorating a space that feels one of a kind and fresh can be a battle with what’s available at the neighborhoods shop.
A duvet cover must be one of the easiest things to sew around! It’s truly a beginner project: all straight seams and all raw edges hidden. Even better, stitching or sewing one yourself means the options for fabrics are endless. Custom duvet covers sound like a significant lavish splurge. After all, it’s intended to fit your bed perfectly and comes in any shading or pattern you need for your dream room. Be that as it may, imagine a scenario where we told you that, for this situation, the custom is less expensive than off the rack. It’s true— because you can make this one yourself!
Not only will going DIY with your duvet cover save you some money, but it’ll also allow you to uniquely design precisely what you are searching for.
A duvet cover must be perhaps the simplest and easiest thing to sew around. Let’s go!
First you have to figure out what size insert you need. Duvets are normally greater than the mattress size they’re intended for. For reference, here are the most widely recognized mattress measurements:
- Twin: 39″ x 75″
- Twin XL: 39″ x 80″
- Full: 54″ x 75″
- Queen: 60″ X 80″
- King: 76″X80″
- Cal-King: 72″X84″
Pick your duvet cover as meant by what will fit your bed’s measurement. You can usually discover these estimations recorded on the packaging or the tag at the bottom end of the duvet.
Open the insert and measure the length and width yourself; if your duvet is exceptionally thick or fluffy, make sure to measure over the highest point of it from end to end to suit its height also.
Cut the Top Sheet
Cut the sheet you need as the highest point of the duvet cover so it’s 10″ long and 2″ wider than your insert. You can make an overlap on the underside of the cover that closes with buttons. Note that one short end of this sheet will be fixed with a 2″ fix allowance rather than sewn shut.
Cut the Second Sheet
Cut the sheet that will be the underlayer of the cover. It’s 6″ shorter and 2″ more extensive than the addition. Note again that one of these short sides will be stitched rather than sewn.
Cut the Interfacing
Cut two 1″ wide segments of fusible interfacing that are the length of your duvet cover wide.
You may need to piece shorter lengths of interfacing out to accomplish the full duvet length, particularly in case you’re making one for a bigger bed.
Fuse the strips to an opposite side of your top sheet, along the raw edge of one of the short sides. Do likewise to the edge of the short side of your base sheet.
If you have a directional print on either sheet, apply your interfacing at the base end of the sheets (whichever will be at the foot of your bed).
Hem the edges you only interfaced by folding and pressing 1″, then folding and pressing 1″ once more. Do this on the two sheets and topstitch set up.
Make the Overlap
With right sides together, pin the short side of the top sheet (the one without interfacing) to the short side of the base sheet (once more, the one without interfacing). Smooth out the remaining sheets and adjust their long sides to pins. Remember the top sheet is longer than the other, so they won’t match up precisely.
Overlay the top sheet over so the two interfaced button plackets cover by 1″.
Sew every one of the three sides at ½” crease allowance, rotating at the corners and avoiding the folded edge. Turn the piece right-side out to check the cover is right.
Make the Buttonhole
Mark the buttonhole position on the top sheet where it covers the button placket. Ensure the buttons are similarly separated and sew. Open the hole with a crease ripper.
Sew on the Buttons
Pin the top cover to the base sheet placket, at that point mark the centred position of the buttons on the base sheet through your buttonholes. Sew on buttons at your markings.
Whether you are making a single embroidered duvet cover or other, it is intended to fit your bed perfectly.
Stuff your cover with the duvet insert, button up the placket and you’re finished!
