Custom sewing bed coverings is a timeless skill and allows you to express yourself in styles that can date back to the 1800’s, or the 1900’s or as modern as you wish, with so many new types of materials to choose from, you can design around a culture, a tradition, a specific time frame, or even design your own custom bed cover that represents you hobby, travel or love of animals – the choices are endless, yet each result is unique. That’s a common thread that runs through all aspects of custom sewing – that each result is unique.
I have worked on custom sewn bed coverings that are really light and designed only for show, and others that contain an insulation layer, to deliver a really warm experience. The more modern designs tend to include a detachable slip cover that is washable and so you might consider this aspect into your design plan.
With custom bed coverings you are certainly investing in the future, as a custom bed cover can be handed on for generations, and only seems to become more valuable with each passing year.
If you are thinking of designing a custom quilt or bed cover then here is a tip; keep notes on how you came up with the idea, items you used for inspiration, and notes how you sourced the materials that you used. Adding in some photos of work in progress and the final result, will add immense value to the custom bed cover in twenty, forty and maybe a hundred years from now.
What could make a better gift than a custom bed cover, and an accompanying scrap book of notes and photos to go with it? Add in your thoughts for the person you are making the custom bed cover for and you have produced something that will be both very personal and a long standing legacy.
Call me if you want to discuss this opportunity in 2015, as I would truly love to work with you on such a great project. Custom bed coverings can be US Mail or courier posted anywhere in the country, so this is a project that I can help you with, no matter if you live in Miami or Minnesota.
Let me wrap-up by saying that on these cold days in Florida and even colder nights further north, look at fabrics and designs that might have both a practical and a personal value, as well as being something that's warm to reach for on cold nights.
Have a great week.
