It was just about this time last year that I made my first duvet cover. Since then I've gotten a bit obsessed. I've done some in cotton, flannel, even a few with vintage percale. My latest creation, literally hot off the sewing machine, is in a turquoise gingham/spring green with polka dots number, and is my new favorite.
I got the two sheet sets (full size, flat and fitted sheets with two pillowcases) for $25.00 on Overstock. I also picked up two sets of flannel sheets, that are cleaned, folded and waiting in the craft room for the weather to turn a bit colder.
I think the great appeal is the major difference a fresh duvet can make in a room. I can change the whole mood of our room once a week and for an ADD decorator like me, that in itself is worth the effort.
Do you have a favorite way to freshen up a room?
