Easy as 1, 2, 3 Numbers Floor Pouf

diy numbers pouf

Charlotte from Ciburbanity recently participated in a contest where she was challenged to create a sewing project using fabric from Waverly. Since she doesn’t consider herself a skilled seamstress, Charlotte knew a copycat project was the way to go and found an adorable numeric pouf for inspiration. She combined her lovely blue floral fabric with canvas drop cloth to put a fun twist on Land of Nod’s comfy math cushion.

Secondhand Sheet to Stylish Rosette Pillow

Steph from Building This Nest had been craving some change to the throw pillows on her couch and loved the look of a pretty rosette pillow cover from Anthropologie. Unfortunately, $58 was definitely not in her budget for a cover alone, and she knew she could make it for way less. Using a $3 sheet from the thrift store, Steph sewed up a cover to fit a pillow form she already had and saved herself a pretty penny. Well, 5,500 pennies actually!

This morning I featured a DIY pintuck duvet cover, and tonight I am back with another sheet-to-duvet cover transformation that’s perfect for adding texture to your bed. Whitney from A Mommy’s Life with a Touch of Yellow was inspired by a quilt from Anthropologie as well as a drool-worthy knock-off by KoJo Designs to finally make her dream bedding a reality. Whitney made a few changes, including creating a duvet cover instead of a quilt to make washing a cinch. Even after several washings, Whitney says her sewing is holding strong!

Kelly from View Along the Way joined up with a group of friends to do a surprise room makeover for friend. The ladies had to get creative in order to stretch their limited budget and sure didn’t have money for fancy bedding. Therefore, Kelly decided to try her hand at creating a textural pintucked duvet cover from sheets. Kelly’s DIY duvet cover cost only $23, which is pretty stinkin’ awesome, but she also shares a few ideas for whittling down the price even more.

Rachael of Lovely Crafty Home was in the market for a new duvet cover and decided to test her newly improved sewing skills and make her own. Like Rachael says, “A duvet cover is just a giant pillow, right?” She combined together a drop cloth, a cheapo sheet, and fabric from Wal-mart to make her lovely ruffled duvet cover. While this was hardly a simple project, Rachael says, “All the hard work and getting stabbed by pins totally paid off.”

As part of her master bedroom makeover, Suesan from Frou FruGal wanted the look of a ruched duvet for her bed. The only thing… she wanted it with the feel of a quilt. Despite the blood, sweat, and tears that came with making a quilt from a duvet’s design, Suesan says, “I absolutely love it, in spite of all my mistakes. I love looking at this quilt. I love how romantic it is. I love that it’s warm, and even when my bed is messed up, it still looks great.”

Girls Embroidered Bed Canopy from Curtains

Girls Bed Canopy

Kylie from Stylish Settings started making curtains for her daughter’s bedroom years ago after viewing them in a Pottery Barn Kids catalog. Then the project got put on hold and soon forgotten. After finding the pieces in a box, Kylie got to work embroidering little birdies, flowers, and butterflies and attaching them to white sheer curtains. Instead of using her panels for a window, Kylie formed a canopy around the head of her daughter’s bed using a bed crown. My daughter would absolutely love this!
