Ever had one of those weeks where it feels like Friday and it's only Tuesday? or worse, Monday? haha. This is one of those weeks for me. Oh well, now it's like I've been gifted three extra days. See, you always have to look at the positive :)
Today I'm going to share how I got all my bedding in my office for 12 bucks. There aren't a lot of 'how to' pictures so if you are a picture browser like I am sometimes, sorry, you'll actually have to read the 'how to' today instead for some of this to make sense :)
What you need:
Two flat sheets in same size as comforter
Sewing Machine/Needle and thread (if you dare)
The size of my current comforter was a full. I like using full size sheets/comforters on twin beds, it just looks better, and fits a whole lot better (besides the fitted sheet obviously). Since the comforter was a full, I purchased two flat sheets in full. These sheets were a little under $6 each, on sale at Target. You can get sheets for this price anywhere really, like Home Goods, Ross, etc.
To get that puckered look, lay the sheets down again, inside out. and mark where you want the 'puckers'. I used a tape measure to make sure they were even. On every other line, have the marks be the same. On the lines in between, do the same thing, just mark a spot in the middle of the other line's marks. Did this make any sense? haha. Just make it look somewhat symmetrical...or not. Its yours to do what you want.
tutorial here about a little different way to add puckers without a sewing machine.
And there you have it, this whole bed was about covering up the old and making it look new. You should have seen those pillows before! haha. I'll have to take a picture for you of what all of this looks like without a little 'cover' therapy.
