Home made duvet cover

When we moved back to New Zealand I had grand plans of what the kids bedroom would look like.  I had bought them matching beds to bring back and bought loads of dark grey gingham to make matching duvet covers.  In my head it was going to look so cute! When we finally found a house to rent, the bedrooms were so small I couldn’t fit in their matching beds.  Luckily, we had bought Mia’s toddler bed back with us so Kees ended up having to sleep in that. For a while he also had to use his sister’s girlie duvet covers.  Last week I finally got around to making him his own duvet covers so his bed feels more like his own.

How I made them:

  • I cut up an old white sheet.
  • I printed Kees’ name on normal printer paper
  • I traced Kees’ name with pencil onto the sheet.

  • Then I hand embroidered over the pencil line.

  • Finally I sewed on a matching grey gingham back.

I think his new duvet looks very smart and its always good to recycle old sheets.
