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.

DIY Twin Sized Zipper Bedding Tutorial

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:

    So awesome! I have had the thought to make them myself even before I bought beddys for my girls, but I don’t sew so I am afraid of even trying! These look awesome!

    What skill level does this require? I can follow a pattern but don’t have any experience with zippers.

      I recommend intermediate skill level. Zipper look more intimidating then they are.. invisible zipper are tricky but not regular ones.. you really are just sewing a straight line with your pressure for riding along the zipper teeth. πŸ˜†

    Can this be modified to fit a 10″ mattress?

      Yes, the easiest, best way to do this would be to sew an extra 6” strip around the whole bottom edge – quilters cotton or sheet fabric would work amazingly!

    I would like to make this for a toddler bed. How can I adjust measurements accordingly?

      You could scale down the Twin size bedding to fit your needs. Just minus however many inches difference it is from the width/length of the Twin. Maybe give an extra inch for wiggle room πŸ™‚
