Creating Your Own Comforter Cover

It's not always easy to find single sheets of the appropriate size, but you can often get lucky in discount stores and clearance sections. When you find two coordinating ones and pillow cases that will match, you're ready to go.

Sew the sheets together along the edges, leaving about 2/3 of one edge open. That edge should be the one with the larger hem. Sew to the inner side of that hem so that it doesn't show when you turn the cover inside out. It will also give extra reinforcement layers of fabric for buttons and button holes if you wish to use those for closing the cover.

You may also sew strips of grosgrain ribbon about 8 inches apart to each side of the opening and tie them to close the opening. Use the pillowcases as pillow shams. Enjoy your creativity!

If you are able to make button holes I suggest making them at either end and adding appropriate size buttons. This way you can button cover to comforter and not fight with it falling down into the bottom or away from the sides.

That's what I hate about the covers.
