Happy Monday everyone! Did you have a good weekend? My girl's night was a lot of fun. It was great to have a night out with just the girls. However, I had to get up early the following day to help my parents with the yard sale. So I was only able to sleep for about 4 hours. Eh.
We were supposed to have the yard sale over Labor Day weekend, but the weather was bad and I was sick so it didn't happen. Instead we postponed it to this weekend. And I'm glad we did as it was a beautiful Saturday. We sold a fair amount of things and all the money went to our wedding fund!
All in all it was a great weekend! : )
Okay onto today's tutorial. Lately I've been slowly redoing our spare bedroom. First to change was the bedding. This is what was we used to have:
Instead of a quilt I wanted a plain grey duvet cover. So of course I decide to make it! Here is what I did:
What you need:
- Two sheets, the same size as the bed
- Sewing machine
Next I pinned the sheets together.
My bed is a full so I meant to buy two full size sheets. But I found a grey queen size sheet on sale so I bought it instead. Therefore I had to cut the grey sheet to the same size as the white full sheet.
Then I sewed the two sheets together on 3 sides using a straight stitch and a 1/2 inch seam allowance.
The side of each sheet I did not sew were the tops because they had a finished look already. To close my duvet cover I sewed buttons onto the top, but you could use a zipper or velcro.
The picture is pretty bad, so disregard the quality. I would love a new camera!
Now it needs a new bedskirt and shams. The bedskirt I have, found at a yard sale for $1! But didn't have it for this picture. And the shams I hope to show you all next monday... So check back!
