Why do we need Bedskirts for our Beds

 

 

I mean it when I say PREPARE FOR YOUR MIND TO BE BLOWN. I am about to teach you how to make a no-sew bed skirt without cutting or sewing. Take a moment to process that.  No need to thank me….I AM A GIVER 🙂

Now, let me put this in context for you. Joe and I had been working on our twin girls’ room for about 8 weekends {during naps and in the evenings}, and countless week nights. I was tired people. And, in all candor, I get sick of room makeovers after working on them for that long. Long story short, I was over it. Really, really over it.

The LAST thing I had to do before we revealed the room to our girls on their 3rd birthday was to make the bed skirts. The thought of it made me want to BURST into tears because I hate sewing {as you have probably gathered by now}. I had planned to make their bed skirts by using twin bed sheets that I used on the reverse side of their duvet covers as the fabric. In an effort to sew as little as possible, Things you should know about Bed skirt I planned to preserve the hemmed edges and I thought I would just have to cut the edges out and sew those raw edges to a rectangle of fabric that would be hidden under the mattress.  It wouldn’t even have to be pretty. BUT even that amount of sewing filled me with dread, especially since I had already sewed duvet covers and some pillows for their room.

After putting the girls to bed one night, I decided to “put my big girl panties on and deal with it.” I entered their room with purpose and put the box springs on their metal bed frames so that I could measure the drop from the top of the box springs to the floor. To do that, I draped the twin sheet I would be using over the box spring. IT WAS THEN THAT I HAD A STROKE OF GENIUS {if I do say so myself}.  People, it occurred to me that I did not NEED to cut or sew anything. After my wedding day and the birth of my girls, it may have actually been the happiest moment of my life. Yes, I hate sewing THAT much.  I could make a no-sew bed skirt.  Rejoice!!!!

So, now let me share with you the secret to making a no-sew bed skirt in a twin size without cutting or sewing a thing. This might work for other size beds, but since I have only done it with a twin size bed and sheet, I make no representations about the outcome for other sizes.
