Why? Why are duvets so damn expensive? I made this king-sized duvet out of two flat sheets. Each one was $12 on sale and they are nice sheets too. High thread count and all that.
Here’s the final photos. I was going to write a little tutorial but it was impossible with king-sized sheets. There is just too much fabric to move around to take good pictures. Are you guys interested in a tutorial? I was thinking of making a mini-duvet and taking pictures that way. It’s really easy. The hardest part is wrestling with the giant sheets and all the damn buttonholes. I crawled around for a few hours on hard floors, pinning and measuring and such. Ouch-ka-va. The duvet we had before was brown. It was pretty but I’m tired of winter so I made a purple duvet.
Whew. I told myself I had to finish that before I could sew anything “fun.” Woooo-hoooo, now I can make something for myself!
