Here’s a selection of tutorials from my bookmarks showing different ways to make duvet covers, most are quick & easy and only require basic sewing skills.

Ruffled: Can be made with two King size flat sheets, thrifted bedskirts, sheets and tablecloths (to do gathered strips that are pinned then sewn to the good sheets).

Color Block: Made with five coordinating colors of fabric and will be about 88″ long x 86″ wide when finished (Queen).

Full Size: Made with strips of assorted fabrics arranged into a lovely design, button & button hole closures along one end.

Knotted Bedding: This is a beautiful anthropologie-inspired project.

With Pin Tucks: Based on a “Kissing Pleat” design by Anthropologie and made with two flat sheets.
