I’m SUPER excited so I thought I’d share. I saw toddler duvet and sham at Pottery Barn that I liked (http://www.potterybarnkids.com/products/organic-cotton-toddler-duvet-cover-navy/?cm_src=AutoRel) but I didn’t want to pay $40 for the duvet and $20 for the sham … soooo … I decided to make them!
I went to the thrift store and found a 100% cotton Ralph Lauren full sized sheet for $3.
I had some navy dye already and I bought some black dye for $1.50 (I wanted it really dark) and dyed it in my kitchen.
Once we took it off the stove, we rinsed it in the yard with cool water, wrung it out and put it in the dryer. It did turn the inside of the dryer blue for a few days, but the dye hasn’t come off on the other clothes so … .
Anyhoo … here is is, the moment you’ve been waiting for!
Not bad for about $10 and two hours!
$3 – sheet from thrift store (100% cotton so the dye will take)
$4 – Rit dye – navy from JoAnne’s
$1.50 – Rit dye – black. I bought the powder and had a 40% coupon
I still need to make the sheet set and a decorative pillow, but I’m off to a great start!
