As many of you know, I am in the (never-ending) process of redoing my master bedroom. Right now, I am working on bedding.
- Approximately 4 yards of fabric
- 2 - 1"x2" wooden boards cut to the length of the bed (approximately 72")
- 1 - 1"x2" wooden board cut to the width of the bed (I have a king-size bed, mine is cut to approximately 66")
- measuring tape and pencil
- staple gun and staples
- hot glue gun or fabritac
1. Cut the entire length of fabric down the center. Standard fabric widths are between 48" and 56" this will create a drape of 24" to 28" which is perfect for most beds. (Please ignore the ratty carpet in these photos...it is on the list of things to replace.)
4. Line the fabric up with the top of the board and staple it.
6. Repeat at each remaining mark.
8. Once you reach the end of the wood, cut the fabric leaving enough to fold in 1" . Fold...secure edge with glue to create a "hem"...then staple. Fold the bottom up and glue in a hem. I loved the look of the frayed selvedge on my linen (part of that whole texture idea), so I opted not to hem it, but if I decide that the bedskirt starts to look more shabby than chic, I can always glue/hem it later on. (That's the beauty of no-sew!)
9. Repeat process for two remaining boards.
This whole project took me less than 1/2 hour and cost me only $20 for the fabric on sale. (I already had the wood - but if you have to purchase wood, it isn't very expensive) Not bad!
Have a lovely Thursday~
