Our room is still a work in progress (we are in the middle of painting our night stands and making
a new headboard) but I am in love with the simpleness of the the duvet and pillows.
I first bought the duvet off of overstock. $20 is well worth the fabric and time it would
have taken me to get that far. Then I purchased white cotton at Hobby Lobby, cut it into
6 inch strips that were 3x the length of the sides, surged around the edges, did a basting
stitch around the edges, gathered, then stitched it around the outside of the duvet. So easy!
For the pillows, I first stitched the ruffles on the front piece, then added two overlapping pieces
of fabric on the back. That way you don't have to deal with zippers.
I will update again once our night stands and headboard are finished.
There were several of you who expressed interest in making your own Anthro-inspired duvets.
I could probably tell you how to make any of the gathered ones even though this one is much
Do you want more detailed instructions?
