There is something so rewarding about knowing you custom made your own bedding.  Let me show you how to make this DIY Ruffled Duvet Cover.

I first measured the duvet insert and bought enough fabric to cover both sides plus a generous overhang for the envelope closure section.

I then laid it all out with the insert inside, so I could get the cuts in the right place.  I could see the width of the fabric fit perfectly to my custom made insert.

I opted for an envelop closure type duvet cover, so at the top I left approximately 10 inches of overhang.

I cut this overhang off, leaving roughly 2 inches for seam allowance.

Before stitching the sides closed, I knew I needed to hem the opening of the envelope closure, so I folded over and pressed the top edge of the main long top piece.
