|There's a whole other household under there. What's under your bed?|
Bravo for you if there are only dust bunnies. If there aren't even any dust bunnies call me. I'd like for you to come clean my house too.
The bed skirt was really quite easy to make. I bought a twin flat sheet at the thrift store and 4 yards of eyelet fabric at Hancocks. The width of the sheet was perfect for the double bed and it's frame but I had to cut off about a foot on the length. I tore the eyelet fabric in two down the center fold and used the selvage edge as the bottom so I didn't have to hem it. I then cut it into 3 panels. 2 for the sides and one for the foot of the bed. Each panel was about 1and 1/2 times the length that I needed so it had a little fullness but wasn't too frilly. I finished off the edges of each of the short ends so they would be neat. Then I ran 2 basting stitches along the torn sides so I could gather it a little. I pinned the fabric to the sheet Right sides together. I started out by pinning the first panel at each end and then put one pin in the middle, adjusted the gathers pinning more securely as I went along. Then I sewed it together. I did this for all 3 sides. When I was done sewing and pressing it I put it over the foundation mattress, put the top mattress back on the bed, adjusted the length and was done. 2 evening worth of work. It probably would have been less but I got caught up in a TV show and it slowed my progress. Abracadabra our camping equipment is out or sight, out of mind until next camping season.
