Phase III.......Dropcloth bedspread is finished!

You know that feeling of finally getting something that you have been dreaming and contemplating for such a long, long time and then finally you just have it?!? That's how I feel about this bedspread! I have been pining over this picture for a very long time, knowing I could probably make it myself but dragging my feet cuz I knew it would be kind of a pain. But, it wasn't all that bad, lol! Everything went so smoothly until today, I swear I can't have a sewing project that doesn't give me some sort of a fit. But, I worked through it and finally got it done. 

And I made it myself. And it cost me $60.00!!! Well under the $625.00 price tag my dream spread had:)

Today I just had do a few adjustments and finish the two corners of the spread, but because of my glitch, it took me a little longer



This was another reason why it was a bit of a pain......all this fabric to work around....


it was a beast!

I also made covers for the two Euro shams that I got to go on the bed. 

So, here is my inspiration:



And here is mine......






















I took the curtains down that I had hanging from the rods at the head of the bed. I just the bedspread to be the feature on this bed. 

My room looks a little bare right now because I'm changing a few things. 

Well? What do you think, does it look like my inspiration bedspread?

  5. Love this!! Think I will blow the dust of my sewing machine and try to make one for my bed. What size dropcloths did you use and how many? I noticed at Big Box store today they come in a myriad of sizes.......I have a King bed so will have to accommodate. Many thanks!

  6. Does the bedspread wrinkle really easy from use or from being folded back for the night?

    1. No, it doesn't wrinkle at all, the fabric is really heavy. Thanks for visiting!
