One of the things that has always bugged me in life has been the fact that my duvet shifts around inside the duvet cover.   It's a small, inconsequential thing that kind of drives me crazy.

I finally did something about it... and since it gave me such satisfaction - I thought I'd share the stupidly simple fix with you all in case it's helpful....  here goes:

I sewed a bit of ribbon to each corner of the duvet (nice and securely):


I sewed a bit of ribbon to each (inside) corner of the duvet cover (nice and securely):


Then I put the duvet inside the cover, tied pretty bows at each corner


Then I  slept soundly, knowing my duvet would remain anchored in place inside the cover, no matter how much tossing and turning I would do.

This is an awesome idea!  I imagine that as well as stopping it from shifting inside the cover it would also make an excellent shortcut to wriggling the doona/duvet into it's cover into the first place - just tie and flip.  I am definitely going to put this into practice, so thank you for sharing.

I so need to do this, plus I need to add some to the closure of the duvet as my husband keeps ending up inside it as he sleeps.... so frustrating! Huh

OMG your a genius. I had a duvet on DD's comforter and she begged me to take it off because it kept slipping. Problem solved now, Thanks!!!!!

A simple and elegant solution. I think you could also sew a button on the duvet and make button holes in the duvet cover.

that seems really random and quite odd as to how he ends up in it lol but to each there own. mine has button closure along one end and i put that end to the foot of the bed. my main problem is the whole thing sliding off the end of the bed... wake up freezing with just the sheet over me.
