I like having the option of changing out my bedskirt to fabric that I have found that is better quality and nicer design than what can be purchased ready made. Here are the steps to creating a new look for your bed. I had lots of help and had to share in the post.
I like to double my bedskirt to give it more body. I have found that 45″ fabric folded in half works great. Usually I use 1.5-2 times by length for each side. I iron it in half and fold the ends and iron on fusible tape to hold the ends closed.
This is the old store bought bedskirt. and some help ;-))
On this store bought bedskirt I secured the edges here and there with QuilTak Taks so the skirt didn’t move around a lot.
I used our TakSnips to remove the old QuilTaks safely from the boxspring.
Lots of help removing the Taks.
First secure your corner.
I am going to gather the skirt, although you can also make it straight or make folds. I just insert a Tak all the way through the boxspring to attach the skirt to the bed.
A close up of gathering technique.
And more help.
Project complete. In the past I have made a bedskirt with two different fabrics. One on each side so that I can remove the bedskirt, wash it and install it with the other side showing for a completely different look.
Hope you found this demo helpful. Bari
