That's really cool.  Is the comforter actually filled and everything, or is it a duvet cover of sorts?  And what kind of material did you use?  I'm always wanting to make sheets, but I'm always worried the fabric won't be comfortable enough for sheets.

I love the contrast and how you added the cowboy fabric in it! Thats like 10 times cuter than any thing you could find in the store anywhere.  I really like it. Smiley

Hey gluey to answer your questions:
-This is actually a comforter cover, it has and older comforter inside which is removable for easy washing.
-I used 100% cotton fabric and it feels like sheet material which is nice, however when its sewn together you hvae to make a hidden seam or else it will fray a lot...OR you could cut the edges inside with pinking shears which should stop fraying.
GOOD LUCK!

The Striped fabric is one single piece or is it different materials sewn together?  Also what fastens the comforter cover together?

Hey, Thanks for all the relys. The piping is on the edge of the pillowcase in red. It may be hard to see in the pic, but its therr. And to answer another question... the stripes were made from 4 different color fabrics, cut into strips (measured), and sewn together. What do you mean how is it fastened?
