      Take the measurements to know the amount of the material needed. Measure your bed’s length and width. Take into consideration the extra inches that you’ll need hanging on the sides of the bed and add to the total width. Multiply your measurements by 2 for the total fabric that you will use for the front and back pieces of your comforter.

      Cut your fabric into two equal pieces for the two sides of the comforter. Stitch the two pieces together from the sides, lengthwise and leave space for the insert material. Leave enough allowance for your seams in the middle of your comforter. This protects you from having less material for stitching.

      Pin the other piece, right side against right side, onto the piece that you’ve sewn the insert material onto. Stitch three sides of the comforter so as to leave an opening to allow you to turn it. Turn your complete comforter into the right side. Once you have turned it onto the right side, stitch the opening.
