Designing a custom duvet cover

Designing a custom duvet cover can be a fun and rewarding experience. Not only can it add a unique and personal touch to your bedroom decor, but it can also be a great way to express your creativity and showcase your sewing skills. While this can be a simple project - since the scale is large (bulky and lots of fabric) is better handled by professionals. Let us help you make one in our workrooms.

  • Size and shape: The first step in designing a custom duvet cover is to measure the dimensions of your duvet or comforter. It is important to take accurate measurements to ensure that the cover will fit properly and provide the necessary coverage. Once you have the measurements, you can use them to determine the amount of fabric needed for the cover. We can help you figure the amount of fabric you will need.

  • Fabric: Choose a fabric that will complement the room's existing decor. Think about color, pattern, texture, and durability. Consider the weight of the fabric as well, depending on the season you want to use it. The most common fabrics used for duvet covers are cotton, linen, and silk. Cotton is a breathable and durable fabric that is easy to care for, while linen is a natural fabric that has a unique texture and is known for its coolness. Silk is a luxurious fabric that is soft and smooth to the touch and has a beautiful sheen. Each fabric has its own unique properties and it is up to you to decide which one will suit your preference.

  • Design: Decide on the design of your Duvet. Will it be a solid color, have a pattern, or be ruffled? Think about the style and aesthetic you want to achieve with your bedding. You can choose to keep it simple with a solid color or you can opt for a more intricate design such as a print. The design can be as simple or as complex as you like, it's all about what you're comfortable with. You can also take inspiration from different sources such as colors and patterns from nature, or you can use existing patterns from magazines or online sources.

  • Trim: Consider adding trim or tassels to your Duvet for an added touch of detail. This could include things like piping, ruffles, or embroidery. It's important to keep in mind that the cover should still be functional and easy to use, so it's best to keep embellishments minimal.

  • Care: Consider the care required for your duvet cover. Will it need to be dry-cleaned or can it be machine washed? The choice of fabric will determine this. Remember, to choose fabrics that shrink the same amount for the top and bottom if you are going to put the duvet in the washer. Hang dry always! Dry cleaning is always recommended. DO NOT MACHINE DRY!
