Using the measurements of the duvet, cut the orange fabric 2" longer than the duvet.
Duvet Measurements: 86"x86"
1. Repeat to have 2 pieces. Sew the two pieces together on the long end. Measure the width and cut down to 2" wider than the duvet measurements. Use pins to secure when sewing. (Cut evenly from each side so the seam is in the center.) This will produce 1 piece of orange fabric 2" wider and taller than duvet measurements
2. Repeat step 1 with the tie-dye fabric, but this time make the length 6" longer than the duvet measurements.
3. Lay the two pieces of fabric together (right sides together) Line up the sides and bottom and sew along the edge 1/2" from the edge.
4. The top tie-dye piece will be longer then the orange piece. Fold under the edges 1/4" twice and sew to finish them off.
5. Create 4 button holes evenly spaced across the longer portion of the tie-dye piece. This will be the edge that folds down to close the duvet.
6. Sew the buttons in place on the orange fabric corresponding to where the buttonholes are.
7. Add a decorative batik style band across the duvet using various stamps and the StazOn Stamp pads. Allow to dry.

- ½ yd. Colorful patterned fabric
- Embroidery floss – Color assortment to coordinate with fabric
- Embroidery hoop
- Embroidery needle
- Sewing Machine
- ½ yd. Additional contrasting colorful patterned fabric
- Two 14” x 14” Pillow Forms
- Cut a 16” square piece of patterned fabric. Set the rest of the fabric aside.

- Cut two additional pieces of fabric for backing, one 16” x 11 ½” and one 16” x 15 ½”. Turn under one inch of the raw edge of the 16” length side, and turn over another inch and hem. Do this for both pieces.
- Overlap the two hemmed edges of the backing fabrics and place them face down on the embroidered piece. Align all raw edges, pin and sew using a 1” seam allowance. Clip corners and turn right side out.
