    DIY Twin-Sized Zipper Bedding Tutorial

    Have you ever heard of bedding for kids that zips up? They’re really popular for bunk beds or RV’s because of the ease of making the bed – just a zip and you’re done!

    DIY Twin-Sized Zippered Bedding Tutorial

    Buying this type of bedding can be expensive ($249+ for a twin-size). Being a seamstress, I couldn’t justify buying them when I could make them myself. After all, with 4 kids that would have been over $1,000+ with tax to buy each of them a set!

    I took great care with the measurements to get the fit of the bedding just right and have the sewing top-notch. I put together a PDF tutorial that is for sale in my Etsy shop, twirlybirdpatterns.etsy.com. Click HERE for the listing.

    I was inspired by the company “Beddy’s” because their bedding looks the best and most high quality. If you want to see some of their bedding in real-life scenarios their main hashtag is #mybedzips.

    Other features:

    -Made for a twin-sized bed up to 8″ thick.
    -Bedding includes “comfort panels” that pull out to feel/look like a real blanket. They fold right back in for the bedding to zip up.
    -Zippers are hidden under a strip of fabric to make this bedding look like a seamless comforter.
    -Zippers come completely unzipped if you want the comforter separate or to make washing easy.
    -Goes on the bed as easily as a fitted sheet making it easy to remove and wash.
    -Bedding includes the bottom sheet, top comforter and pillow sham (standard pillow).
    -Instructions are 49 pages long and loaded with colored pictures to guide you through the process.

    Here’s some example pages from the PDF document:
