Handmade Fitted Bedspread

Fitted bedspreads look beautiful and elegant in a master bed room. While you can buy fitted bedspread from any linen shop, making it on your own can be economical as well as personalized. Moreover, it is advantageous over a throw- over bedspread, which can slip and fall. A fitted bedspread also gives a tailored look to your bed. It can easily be made to co-ordinate with your color scheme or décor of the room. Moreover, you can choose the fabric color that complements the color of the walls, curtains or furniture of your bed room. Explore the following lines to learn how to make fitted bedspread.

How To Make Fitted Bedspread

Materials Required
  • Fabric
  • Lining for the Top of the Bed (Buy double if you want it quilted)
  • Matching Thread
  • Sewing Machine
Method
  • Add one inch to the width of the bed (when it is made up) top for the seams while buying the fabric and lining.
  • If more than one width of fabric or lining is used, use full width in the centre and add equally wide parts on either side.
  • Join the seams of fabric and lining with a flat seam.
  • The length of the fabric and lining should be 1.5 inches more than the length of the bed (when it is made up without the pillow) top for seams.
  • For the bed skirt, measure from the top edge of the made up bed to the floor and add 1.5 inches for seams to know the depth of skirt you need.
  • Measure the perimeter of the bed (the added length of the four sides of the bed) or the combined length of three sides of the bed, if it is attached to a headboard, to get the length of skirt fabric you will need.
  • If you are opting for a gathered skirt, buy 1.5 times or twice the measured length. Join the widths of the fabric using French seams.
  • Quilt the top section.
  • Match the raw edges of the skirt and put the right sides together and pin the skirt to the top section.
  • Leave one-inch seam allowance at the top edge.
  • Adjust the gathers carefully and make them evenly spaced.
  • Stitch the skirt to the top section half an inch in from the raw edge.
  • Place the lining on wrong side of the bedspread and match the raw edges.
  • Stitch around the three edges and turn right side out through the top edge.
  • Turn in one inch at the top edge and slipstitch.
