One of the simplest slipcovers to make is the duvet slipcover. And since the whole purpose of the duvet is to uncomplicate the chore of bedmaking, when it comes to the cover, the simpler the better. Really this allows the duvet slipcover to be laundered as often as the sheets and pillow cases, and preserves the duvet insert , thus minimizing the cleaning of it. Shown here in a reversible solid white linen on one side, and a neutral graphic on the other, all inside seams are edge finished to prevent raveling when laundered. Strings are stitched to the inside corners to hold the duvet in place. Rings have been sewn into the corners so the duvet cover may be easily secured. Along with the tootsie neckroll featured in last week's post, I'll be offering simple washable linen duvet covers in my line of products to be launched in 2013!
Tis the season for wrapping, and my favorite way to wrap a neckroll is tootsie roll style. The down and feather neckroll shown is wrapped in white Irish linen and tied up in festive Raffit ribbon. The pleated trim was crafted using the quick pleater system designed by Angie Knowles and made in USA.

Two of my fav embellishments are ribbons and pleats, so why not put them together? Today I experimented with ribbon pleats for a new neckroll design for holiday release. Luckily I have the Quick Pleater System, designed by Angie Knowles and made in USA. Check out Angie's instructional video to see how to make perfect knife and box pleats! quickpleater.com
