Pin Trim to Duvet

In order to add graphic impact to the solid duvet, use a tailor's tape measure to roll out the trim in the shape of a rectangle (Image 1). Hold trim in place with pins (Image 2). Once all four sides of the rectangle are equal, cut each corner with scissors at a 45-degree angle to create a mitered finish. Once all four pieces are mitered, attach them to the duvet with a sewing machine or by hand-stitching.

Align Rectangle to Bed

Once rectangular trim is sewn, ensure proper alignment by centering duvet so that the outside edges of the rectangular trim are just inside or flush with the sides of the toddler mattress.

Check for Straight Edge

When making the bed, check to make sure that the outside edges of the rectangular trim detail are straight and in line with the edge of the mattress.
