2nd Tiny Tip of 2012



Have you ever priced nice duvet covers? :-0 !!! We have a wonderful down comforter that I put on our bed in the colder months. It needed a cover. I bought 2 second-hand bed sheets at a thrift store, sewed them together on 3 sides and then turned them inside out. I sewed little ties on the corners of the comforter and inside the corners of the cover to tie it in place. I just use little safety pins to hold the opening closed. It works very well, cost less than $4.00 and I think it's pretty!

  4. I've been a little obsessed lately with how inexpensive thrift store sheets are. This is another great project with them.
