One of the most personal rooms in your house is the bedroom. This is the place where you go to unwind and rest after a hard day’s work. It is also the place that bears witness to your personal feelings and your personal life. It is inside a room that you get to cry and let out your frustrations. It is also there where you make love with a lover and show your true passions.
Because of this, mattress covers and pillow cases are some of the most personal things in the world. In fact, the colors of the sheets that you use and the design actually reflect the personality of the owner of the room. This is especially true with people who are alone in a room and are not sharing it with another.
But no matter how personal a bed is, some people do not have the time anymore to personalize it further. They just buy the design that they want and they are already good to go. Below are some of the ways that you can personalize your pillow cases and your bed sheets.
1. Make a quilt
A quilt is a wonderful way to add color to the bed especially if you are the classic type. The colors and the shapes in the quilt will provide a sharp contrast to the simple lines in your plain mattress covers. You can even make your own sheets from old clothes in your closet. All you need to do is cut strips of fabrics from the old clothes that you have and sew them together.
2. Embroider a design
Another way to make a pillow case or a sheet more personal is to add a embroidery into it. If you are not handy with the needle, don’t worry. There are ready made embroideries in hobby stores right now that you can buy and sew into the sheets. Some are even iron on so you don’t even have to sew that much. You just need to peel off the paper and then iron it on the fabric.
Putting your initials on the sheets will brand the covers as yours. Again like the embroideries, there are letters that you can buy from hobby stores that you can iron on or sew. They even come in different fonts. Because it is so easy, some people will even forgo with the initials and go for the whole name.
