Hey, I've been looking around for fabric to make a duvet cover out of and I'm not having much luck in real-life stores.  Does anyone know of an online store that has that two-tone damask print and or/ paisley thing that Urban Outfitters has been doing?


A couple examples of the general concept:

Thanks!

Hope someone else can help you more specifically than I can.. but I do have a few possible search suggestions for you :

Try the phrase damask print sheet (or damask print fabric) ...
and-or, substitute the word printed for print..
and-or, try the word jacquard or the word paisley instead of the word damask.

When I tried search using 'damask print fabric' -- one of the things I got was this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290021141210&category=71207

Possibly a whole lot darker than what you want, but I think it might be reasonably close to the 'idea' of what you want? [by sheer coincidence, I'd bought numerous things from that ebay seller in the past -- super-nice to deal with, and the fabrics I received were *really* nice ones].

I actually just bought that bedspread. Truth be told, that thing is a good deal.
If you make a duvet cover you end up spending more money on fabric than you would if you bought it. Also, it seems like its going to be super simple, but dealing with that much fabric and making sure it fits the duvet and all the edges match up is a HUGE FAT hassle. Take it from someone who knows: Unless it is some fancy thing that's going to cost more than $100 if you bought it in a store, don't try to make your own. (That is if you have no experience with working with something that huge previously. i.e. quilting and the like. I didn't.)
