Drop Cloth Bedskirt

Did you know that I love drop cloths?  It started out as just flirting and then progressed to dating.  Then things got serious.  Today though, change my Facebook status cause it’s a full on relationship now!

I bought another one of these when I was out shopping for stuff for my closet and washed it, folded it and set it on my table.

I picked these up last week and finally got around to making the bed skirt

When I took the old bed shirt off I realized it’s actually pretty nice, it just doesn’t work in here.

I measured from the floor to the top of the box spring and found that I needed 15″.  To give me enough fabric to solidly attach it I measured up 18″ from the hemmed edge

I measured all the way down the long edge and then up from the bottom edge and cut out the middle.

Then I attached the two long sides to the box spring and messed with the fabric at the foot of the bed.  I liked this little fold over and spent about 20 mins pulling, adjusting and repinning everything until I got it where I liked it.

And then I made the bed!  I love, love, love it!

I didn’t iron it or sew anything-I measured, cut and pinned and I have a clean, frill free bed skirt!
