how to make crib size duvet cover

By Hatun Comak Monday, October 14, 2019

Making a duvet cover is a simple beginner friendly sewing project. You can sew a crib size duvet cover for your baby or as a gift. It is a simple and quick project to make. I sew this duvet cover as a gift. Besides quilting, such easy quilting projects makes me happy and gives the chance of a break.
Whatever I make something new, I try to prepare tutorials as well, trying to make use of my knowledge and I like sharing ideas. Soooo here we go!


You will need a top and a bottom fabric for the duvet. There are standard measurements for each size but bedding can be varying so before sewing your duvet cover, measure yours in order to be sure that it will fit.

For toddle bed finished size is 33"×42". You need to add 1" to the with 1/2" seam allowance and add 1.5" to the length for seam allowance and 6" for the closure part. So cut two pieces of fabric measuring 34"×49.5"

Before starting it is important to wash and iron.

Start with closure part. Fold one of the width sides in 1/2" ( to the wrong side) and iron. Sew in place. Then fold again 3.5" to the wrong side and iron.

Repeat the entire process to the other piece of your duvet.

Now you need to sew on the bottons. Measure 1/4 of the way on each side and mark with erasable pen. Measure 2" down from the folded part and draw a line between the two marks. Measure 4" and mark between each 4". These will be spots for buttons and buttonholes.

While making buttonholes, I used the buttonhole opening foot of my sewing machine, which makes it quite practical. Sew the bottons to the other piece just opposite the buttonholes.

Take your two pieces of fabric and pin the them, right sides together.

Sew along with 1/2" seam allowance, sew all tia way round except the opening part.

When you have finished sewing, turn your duvet cover right side out and iron.

And it is ready either for your personal use ör to be gifted.
