Creating a bed comforter is an inexpensive, moderate, and creative way to express your personal style.
Most comforter sets will run you around $100 in the store, and they just might not be suitable to match or express your bedroom's decor.
What a wonderful accomplishment you'll have by making your own.
1. Measure the length of your bed from one end of the mattress to the floor or where you want your comforter to stop.
Then measure across the width of your bed mattress. Add on the amount you wish to have hanging on each side to the total width measurement.
2. Take your length measurement times 2. This is the amount of fabric you will need for the front and back panels of your comforter.
For larger comforter sizes like queen or king you will have to piece your fabric together depending on the width size of the fabric you choose.
3. Fold lenght of fabric in half and cut the f fabric in half so you have two equal pieces. Then stitch the two pieces together length wise. You should have a seam down the middle of your comforter.
Or if you prefer, take the second length of fabric and cut it in half length wise. Then stitch one piece of the second length on each side of the first piece.
Do this for both the front and back fabric of your comforter.
4. You will need the same amount of batting for the center of your comforter. Baste the two lengths of batting together as it will be easier than trying to use your sewing machine.
Lay down your batting and place back side on top with right side facing up. Pin to hold layers together, and stitch.
5. With right sides together place front piece of comforter on top of back piece. Stitch together leaving an opening at the bottom to turn.
After you turn comforter right side out, stitch opening closed.
6. Using coordinating fabric, cut two pieces of fabric the same size for pillows. You can measure your bed pillows or choose different sizes for your comfort.
7. Right sides together, stitch around material leaving a small opening at bottom to turn.
Turn right side out, and stuff pillow with poly fiber fill before stitching closed.
