Back in college, my mom and I made the duvet cover below. This was thick upholstery fabric. It didn’t really fit in my dorm room, but it was so regal looking. I felt like Shirley Temple in The Little Princess after the guy brings her that plush comforter. Not that my dorm room was nearly as bad as the attic where they put her, but you get the idea.
Anyhow, the upholstery fabric was rather thick and not so comfortable. Now that I’m a bit older, my tastes have changed and I prefer lighter, more comfortable fabrics, but this was a king size comforter so I couldn’t let the fabric go to waste.
We also happen to have a random feather bed that was bit worse for wear, but folded in quarters made for a perfect fluffy bed that Minnie was quite happy with. So I repurposed the duvet fabric and made the dog bed you see above. My little princess is quite happy with it. 🙂
