Sew a Dashing Patchwork Duvet CoverSew napkins (yes, napkins!) into a snuggle-worthy bed cover
What better way to dress up a bedroom than with a new, sparkling duvet cover? It’s an easy project that makes an impressive gift because you can personalize it with your own fabric selections. A duvet, by the way, is a soft comforter—with a removable cover—meant to eliminate the need for a top sheet or bedspread.
Here, I’ll show you how to sew a patchwork duvet cover that has the easy charm of a patchwork quilt. The choice of fabrics—shimmery Indian silks, textured brocades—gives it the sophisticated edge of very expensive designer bedding. Your friend will think you spent a small fortune! He or she will never know that you used a combination of purchased cloth napkins, scraps from other projects, and a simple sheet for a backing—that is, unless you can’t keep that delicious secret to yourself.
