Quick Toddler Duvet/Comforter

(I folded back the edge so you could see the piping)

We converted Noodlebug's bed into a toddler bed back in February.  I have been frustrated by the lack of nice toddler bedding.  I still need to whip up some toddler flat sheets but yesterday I decided I needed to make a toddler-sized comforter/duvet.

I was inspired by this tutorial from Purl Bee.  I started out by making some bias tape which I then turned into homemade piping using some cord I found at JoAnn's.  The material is a heavier weight linen-type material which made it a little difficult to sew as close to the piping as I would have liked.  Still, it came out okay.  I came up short on piping so the bottom of the duvet looks terrible but I can always go back and finish it up later.  Still, I'm happy with it. Not bad for  few hours work!!!

P.S. The elephant was a homemade birthday gift to Noodle from my friend Monique. I am still waiting for her to make me one of my own!
