New Inexpensive Bedding–Help!!

I hope all of you had a fantastic, fabulous, loving and safe Christmas! We had so much fun. The love and happiness pouring out of my little boy is unmatched and I’m still grinning from ear to ear!

I am going strong with the momentum of Christmas decorating. I am also trying to adhere to my New Year’s Challenge of not spending a lot of money on crafting. While I clean out my craft room, I am also thinking about redecorating my bedroom. Right now its very boring, with a simple white comforter, sheets etc. I want some color. When I was little, my mom used a very simple and inexpensive method for revamping our blankets and comforters. Once I pick out the fabric I want to use on the top of my Duvet only, I will show step by step how to do this. There is sewing involved, but my mom used to do this with only a needle and thread. Its an easy way to make something old look new again.

For now, I need help deciding which fabric to use. My white comforter will show a bit in the duvet, so please keep that in mind when helping me decide the fabric. My biggest problem with any redesign, is that I like so many different things, its very hard for me to narrow it down! So, here are the fabrics that I like the most. What do you think??

I pretty much have a clean slate to work with in my room. No headboard (yet) or any specific furniture that will make a difference in this design. Let me know what you think for a duvet cover! All of these are from Joann’s ranging in price for $4.99-$7.99 before coupon and I’m going to only need 4 yards at the most. Not bad for a new duvet, especially after I use my 40% off coupon for one continuous piece!!

  8. I love D! It's colorful but still has a neutral background and it isn't too bold. I think you wouldn't get tired of it.
