Make Your Own Duvet Cover! (It’s really not that hard!)

I’ve been wanting to replace my duvet cover for forever. But I put it off, trying to figure out the easiest way to make one. Then, a few weeks ago, we stayed in a hotel and our bed’s duvet cover was nothing more than a giant pillow case, which I hoped knew I could totally replicate. 🙂

Blogger’s Block of the Month #1
