- 2 Flat sheets the size of your Duvet. Adelle has a twin duvet but an XL twin bed so i was able to use the flat sheet for the cover and the fitted sheet for her bed!
- A roll of cotton ribbon, or any ribbon that is sturdy
Lay out your flat sheet you plan on being the top right side up
Lay the other sheet on top of that right side down. match up the top of the sheets and place your duvet below that. See Above Picture.
With your duvet on top, cut around it leaving a 2" seam allowance, and don't cut the top of the sheet, where it's thicker, you're going to use that as your opening.
Take your duvet off and pin the sides
cut your ribbon to a length that would make it easy for you to tie a knot around your duvet, then pin your ribbon 4" away from the corners, except when pinning the ribbon by the top of the sheet which will be your opening, pin it 1" below the line. Now sew your 3 sides up using a 5/8" seam allowance and make sure to catch that ribbon, but leave the top part open.
Using a measuring tape, mark your button holes. I used 8 buttons and placed them every 8"
After you do your button holes, lay your blanket down and use a pen to mark where your buttons should be.
Stitch your buttons on, again I used the button foot, which has changed my life. I'll never hand sew a button again! The biggest thing is that your buttons go on the outside of your duvet, so on the patterned top. the Top will flip in when you close your duvet, that way the buttons are hidden.
Flip your duvet right side out and turn the opening in, button your buttons and voila, you have your duvet cover!
