How to sew a bedspread on a bed

I love to collect any flap. I buy it in stores, I ask in the workshops for sewing curtains, I collect it from friends and acquaintances. And I like to sew more from a rag. Products are more original, more interesting and unique than those made from ordinary dimensional fabrics.

And now, having accumulated several strips of curtain satin, I decided to sew a new blanket for my big bed. I bought these strips in the studio for a small amount. They are long, even, but of different widths. The color and texture of fabrics is also different. In addition to strips of fabric, you will also need:
  • ruler, chalk, scissors, needles for splitting fabric;
  • threads in tone of the main color of the fabrics (I have more beige, so the threads are the same);
  • sewing machine, overlock, iron.

Another great desire and hours 5 times. Since the flap has already been cut, almost no need to cut it.Time will be spent only on sewing. The bed is 160 by 200 cm (or 1.6 by 2.0 meters). The bedcover should be larger so that it hangs down along the edges on three sides, except for the one where the headboard is, and hides the mattress with the bed. But it would not be so beautiful and fun. I also have strips of cloth of different lengths. Therefore, I decided to place them on the bedspread diagonally. For a start, cut a rectangular triangle with equal sides from one strip.

The long side of this triangle (it is called the hypotenuse, if you recall the geometry) sewn a strip of cloth. Before sewing, this strip should be attached so that a square remains on the edge, the sides of which are equal to the width of the sewn strip. If I have a 23 cm wide fabric strip, then I need to leave a square, the sides of which are 23 cm. On the other side of the fabric there should be a piece that is not less than the width of this square.If there is more, do not worry.

After sewing the strip, I cut the fabric from both edges. The same square was folded diagonally by a triangle and this triangle cut off. She did the same on the other side of the strip. That is, a rectangular triangle should always be obtained. He just, with the sewing of each next strip of fabric, should increase. When cutting, you need to be careful not to cut the triangle in the wrong direction. In the same way, I sew and cut corners in the following lanes. When the sides of the triangle reached 220 cm (this will be the width of the coverlet), I cut the strip so that it has a right angle (as in the diagram).

Next you need to sew the strips until the other side reaches a length of 240 cm.I had only one band. I also cut off the fabric so that I get a right angle.

Sew the stripes until you get a rectangular canvas. Work ends with a triangle too. In the process of cutting and sewing it is necessary to ensure that the two opposite sides of the rectangle are obtained parallel to each other. I process all seams on the overlock and lay a line on the front side. This can be done in the process of work, as far as sewing the bands. The main part of the work is completed. It remains to cover the veil on the sides. Give it a tougher look and finish. I decided on all sides to sew the finishing strips. At the head of the head it would have been possible not to sew, but then the covers could not be turned over. And so it will be possible to lay it on either side of the headboard. For processing the edges, I found strips of the same beige fabric, but of different widths. I cut a 20 cm wide strip in half, folded it in half,cleaved with pins with a length of 220 cm and sewn. Made it from the opposite side. The seams are treated with overlock and stitched.

Then a strip of fabric 23 cm wide sewn to the long sides. For a neat finish, on the edges of the coverlet left the allowances of 5 centimeters by five. Seam processed. Twisted inside the left allowances and stuck with all four ends. The edge of the coverlet (the edge of the fabric turned out there) just twisted 1 cm and also removed. Bedspread ready. It remains to iron and lay on the bed. It would have been possible to sew a lining to make the cover more dense, but I decided not to waste fabric on it. The seams on my back are all finished, they look good, the cloth will not crumble.The finished cover turned out to be 260 cm by 260 cm (or 2.6 by 2.6 m), that is, on all three sides it will hang from the bed to a length of 50 cm (or 0.50 m) and will close all that cover up.
