All you say is use buttons or velcro or a zipper. This bedding set includes 1 duvet cover and 2 shams. Our duvet is an odd-sized king, and I could not find a cover that would fit it correctly. After sewing the sides, sew the top closed with a french seam as well. How about the bottom?

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? Thanks for the tutorial, it has encouraged me to start! This is such a great tutorial! I just made my first duvet using your tute as a springboard. I used King-sized sheets to cover my queen sized duvet, and it just needed a bit of trimming to be perfect: Check it out when you get a chance: Thank you for the easy instructions!
Duvet covers are so expensive! Your tutorial is fantastic — the photos just make it so much easier to visualise. Any advise on adding the ruffle would be appreciated. I once sewed my own, but saw how the comforter slipped around inside the cover. How do you keep it from bunching up to one side, or sliding down from the top edge? On the topic of securing the duvet in place — as well as having ties on your covers, sew a little loop on each corner of the duvet.
The Angry Chicken says some duvet covers have a fold-over closure like a lunch bag. She gives instructions on a tutorial for a snack bag. I am afraid to do that as I might not add enough material on the bottom. Thank you so much for posting this tutorial! Do you have any tutorials on making Euro Shams or other pillows to go with the bed?
One more quick question: Can you give me a picture or suggestion? Thanks so much for this tutorial. I just finished making my daughter your duvet cover with the Waverly Paris fabric that I bought 2 years ago for her French themed room. It came out gorgeous! I sewed ribbon on all the ends to tie the comforter in as well.
What a great idea. Off to make some matching curtains now. I have plenty of cool sheets I plan to use for a duvet! Thanks for making it look easy: I was even able to add on a hand crocheted edge. You could just line the whole top by pinning to a sheet and top-stitching the top to it along the lines of your patchwork.
Best wishes all you sowers! An employee told me that the company made a bid deal of getting coupons out before the last Midnight Madness Sale , but had everything in the store already discounted so the coupons were worthless or dated for a future time.
Walmart carries fabric in many of their stores as does Hobby Lobby. Especially if you are considering upholstery-type fabrics, keep in mind that the two layers of fabric in the duvet cover can add considerable weight to the actual duvet inside. Just a few thoughts. So much easier than making French seams!
Also, many quilt shops sell wide fabric especially made for quilt backs. Definitely use some method to attach your corners of the comforter and duvet cover to each other or the comforter will always be bunched up one way or the other. They were never finished into quilts. I would like to make duvet covers out of them instead of quilts.
Would I use a quilt back fabric first before sewing a sheet as a bottom for the duvet? Thank you for a great tutorial! For the safety if the quilt top please back it first. I would even recommend tacking down at random places through out the quilt then attach your back if the duvet.
They will be wonderful heirlooms you can display. This tutorial made a daunting project so much easier and I would never have even considered using the French seams-because I never had before in window treatments, curtains, etc.
I was looking for years for a duvet cover that was what I wanted and finally decided to make the investment in the fabric that met my needs which nothing else ever quite did. While the material was not inexpensive, I consider this a great investment because we will have this for the rest of our lives.
I now have 4 options instead of two that all look professional!! Your simple directions made a significant impact for me! Thanks so very much!! What am I doing wrong? Any help would be great. Although I used to sew everything I wore and all of my home soft furnishings, I quit sewing over a decade ago.
I promised friends 2 duvet covers for their daughters. The hard part of this project is measuring and cutting a large amount of fabric. I was so grateful for the detailed instructions for a perfectly finished duvet. It is so nice to have a wide hem for buttonholes and also for allowing the opening to lay flat. Thank you very much for taking the time to take pictures for great visuals to go along with your directions.
I found both necessary and helpful in order to complete the duvets. And all the comments are super helpful too. From what other commenters wrote looks like this is a better tutorial on making a duvet cover from sheets than others online, so thank you! Thanks all for the tips about places to find cheap sheets and cheap fabric! Before you go to all the trouble to make a duvet cover, put the duvet on the bed with two layers of the fabric you intend to use.
The lighter the fabric the better. Heavier fabrics render the properties of the duvet useless and make the sleeper more uncomfortable because of the weight on their feet and legs. I made a beautiful one with decorator fabrics. I have had so much trouble finding twin xl bedding for my dorm room that I like. I think that I will just make my own perfect bedding!!
Then, stick one end of the tie t through the loops and tie securely. Just wanted to leave a note to thank you for this awesome tutorial. I did the french seams and it came out beautifully!
The down comforter stays securely inside! This was a great tutorial! Or leave the top center panel whole and cut the others into even widths? That seems like a ton of work…and cutting!!! Any ideas or sugfeations would be greatly appreciated! Trying to make it the right size has been a daunting issue…so I just keep putting it off!
So originally I only bought two panels thinking I could use a colored sheet for the bottom…but even to do that I think I will need an additional panel to make it even! I will probably use a flat sheet, as suggested.
I want to give him a sturdy side and myself a soft comfortable side. Do these measurements take into account the thickness of the comforter? I am tempted to add another inches onto these measurements to make sure my comforter is not too constricted and therefore not free and fluffy still. Exactly the same or larger or smaller and by how much? Morgan, you would want to make the duvet a little.
What a great tutorial! Thinking of adding bottom corner ruffles to spruce up a plain white cover. Thanks again for your time…This was very helpful for me.
I bought my first duvet cover at Ikea about 2 years ago then started to make my own. Have made 6 so far. I used the first cover as a template for the rest since the duvet itself came from Ikea. Hi, I probably am just not comprehending this.. What would you recommend if you only want the middle part to be open, so the base of the left and right panels will be closed?
Would you recommend hemming and then sewing together? Doing the french seam and hemming the rest? My new duvet cover looks and feels great! I absolutely loved the the french seam, it was my first time using it but it looks very professional!
Just wanted to say that I used to purchase all my fabrics to make baby crib sheets from Joann Fabrics. And besides that…having made at least a dozen of these sheets this past year…they all shrink up. I usually purchase 2 yards to make the sheets. We need to be careful when we purchase fabric to make these duvet covers. I agree that sheets are probably the very best option…and wash up well. I love this tutorial: Always wash and iron your fabric if you think this will be a problem.
In fact, I think that easy the second step in the directions. I have searched on a tutorial on how to do a button flap on a queen size duvet cover without success. Thank you for clear and easy instructions on making a duvet! Love the French seam idea and using it for my project: This is to Sherri J. Many are 42 inches. You should always wash cotton fabric before using it. Yes, it will shrink! Always buy more length than you think you will need.
Paola, you should really measure the comforter…. To secure a duvet to the cover is easy, simply cut 4 pieces of velcro, sew them diagonally across the back corners of the duvet and the inside of the cover, I normally sew these velcro strips onto the rear of the cover before joining it to the front.
Never moves until you want to remove it to wash. Works well on polar fleece too, doesnt get full of lint when washing, if it does, sticky tape removes any lint. Thank you so very much for an awesome tutorial. The idea of French seams is great. I am so thrilled with your notes and pics as I am coming to the step of putting the duver cover together.
I did heirloom machine embroidery designs on the top cover and a plain white piece for the bottom. Thank you soo much for your generous tips. Quick question, you said I would need about 10 yards of fabric, but later on you mentioned something about doubling. Do I need 5 yards for the front and 5 yards for the back? I stumbled across it only to realize that I have a feather duvet of my grandmothers that is in rough shape.
Now that I have your tut, I can make a cover and actually use it this winter. Thanks so much for the great tut. And simplifying the French seam. Thanks a million for the photos and clear, clear directions! Once I sew one side closed with a french seam, i can no longer finish the other side, because it is not possible to open it so that the right sides are together, for the second portion of makign the french seam.
My problem is a little different. I need to make a tailored duvet cover. I am reluctant to try this and am open to any alternative solutions. I only found two places online that sell these. One sells only to hotels. I am making a Duvet cover for a friend, so found your question. This is my first experience with this, but I have done many quilts.
I would suggest that, yes, you should get a duvet the size you like and stitch along the corner you wish to cut out. Cut the corner out, and bind the edge with bias tape to secure it further. I made my quilt cover using this tutorial and it turned out fabulously. Thank you for a very easy to follow tutorial. You have done a great job with this tutorial.
I will be recommending this tutorial to all my sewing friends. Thank you once again. Thanks, I always thought I could make it too after seeing them in the stores…you did a great job with the instructions, I will make one as soon as possible…thanks again.
I did this by sewing 2 king sized flat sheets together and it turned out great. I used button closures at the bottom. Obviously, it matched my bedding exactly! Thank you so much for these instructions. I am not much of a sewer, but I am going to give this a try. So, you do this AFTER you have sewn up the sides and top so that you are folding, pressing and sewing a big circle of fabric? Is it possible to hem the bottom of each side separately and then sew the front and back together, or do you get a better result doing it the other way?
Kaille, I thought the same thing at first. Perhaps the instructions about the bottom hem are referring to the top and bottom of the duvet cover — separately — BEFORE they are sewn together. Design Sponge, these are exactly the type of instructions I was looking for. Will do very small practice one perhaps, and then begin. Ive never used a sewing machine. Anyways, making a small one for practice is a really good idea!!
Ill add to your great idea of making a smaller one..
