Carrot duvet cover for the kid

For our bed I do not qualify anything else than white linen. I love the fresh white feel of the bed linen, I think white just looks always good. But for the kid's bed, well that is a whole different story... 


For the kid I want colour and lots of it and when I discovered yet again the orange double undersheet from our linen cabinet and realized we are never going to use it in our own bed I desided to make a duvet cover for the kid from the sheet. I think the undersheet was originally A's parents, but it has moved long ago to A's own home and then to our home. I am normally quite ruthless when it comes to sheets and do donate them quite easily, but this undersheet has somehow survived. With the white short stripes it reminds me of a carrot and the sheet has always humoured me.


I used the sheet to make a carrot duvet cover for the kid. I love the old sheet in this purpose. I'm still left with a quite large piece of the undersheet, some of it will be used for one other project, but there might be few more projects coming with this carrot fabric.

  1. Ya you are absolutely right, white color is rich color and for the toddlers rooms its totally different or opposite. The white color duvet looks like the luxury duvet covers and looks more pretty and elegant than to others.
    In my toddlers room I placed the bright colors duvet cover because kids always like the bright colors to have in their bedroom and they feel some special if they have some more attractive colors duvet cover in their bedroom.
    Well thanks for your wonderful share.

    1. I agree, white sheets even if they are just plain cotton are really luxurious. But kids do not want luxury they want things fun (atleast I wanted when I was a kid).

  3. I love this colour! I guess you always liked it--that's why you saved it.

  4. I'm with Christina: cute. Will you use the left over fabric for other nursery projects?

    1. Yes, I have one nursery project already done with the fabric, you'll see that today :) But I still have quite a lot of the fabric, for that I have no plans, but most likely it will end up in some nursery project.
