Homemade Bed Skirt

I miss lots of things in Croatia but one thing I miss alot is all the home decorating things. You know all those goodies at Hobby Lobby. :0)

Well I know a bed skirt isn't a decor piece but it sure does dress-up a bed. So after some looking and realizing they don't have bed skirts in Croatia I thought I would try my hand at making one. I had some dark marroon trigger like material and a flat, white bed sheet and so I began. It was a little hard to get the demensions right but once I did I managed. I'm pretty proud of it and it was really easy to do, well kinda.

this is my before picture, I'm sure you can see all the dust under the bed, looks kinda naked
Then after adding the bed skirt, I think it looks pretty good, at least you can't see the dust under the bed. Oh yea and that adorable Teddy was a gift from Johnny, he went to Build a Bear and made me that teddy with a special message inside, very special!

I found several tutorials online for your grazing.

  5. That is a lovely bed skirt, Tori; it looks great -- a wonderful way to help make your bedroom a haven of rest for yourselves! :~)

  6. I think you did a great job...looks good.

  7. wow
    What a difference a bed skirt can make!!!! amazing job and if you look at the before picture compared to the after.. the difference in the quilt (is it a quilt or throw or whatever) the bedskirt REALLY makes the colors in it POP!

  8. Bed skirts really do make a difference, huh? You did a great job.

    A friend of mine sews for home interiors and she figured out a way to make the bedskirt without the flat pice that lays across the box springs. It's basically fabric and velco. She made one for my mom and it's really easy to take off to wash and put back on because you don't have to lift the mattress to get to it. I thought it was a great idea.


  9. It's VERY pretty, Tori! It's amazing all the things we take for granted in the States.

  10. Oh! Your bed skirt is beautifully done and matches perfectly! Thank you for mentioning us. We are happy to be of service to you.

    I noticed that you have made Jesus your Lord. What a wise choice :-D

  11. Very nice, Tori! I have lots of junk under my bed too..LOL
