I want to make my son a duvet cover and pillow case for Christmas.<br>
I plan on searching on the internet for a cute print, but am not sure how to figure out the quality of the material, especially because it will be used for bedding.<br><br>
What should I look for in the material's description to see if it is bedding quality? When I pick out sheets, thread count is one of the things I consider. How would I do that on line?<br>
Any recommended websites?

I did this a couple of years ago for my dd. I shopped the online linen sales at stores whose quality I trust for flat sheets. Ended up with a bargain from garnethill.com.... adorable twin flat sheets for $9 each. I bought five: two for the duvet, one for pillowcases (they were sold out), and two for curtains. A few places I looked were potterybarnkids.com, landofnod.com, and thecompanystore.com.<br><br>
Hope that helps. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

oooh, I like that idea. I didn't think of buying linens to make the cover, but it makes sense. If it is on discount it wouldn't be more expensive than regular material.<br><br>
thanks<br><br>
eta: I could also find a flat sheet that already matches my extra plain sheets/material, and use one printed side and a matching plain colored side. off to garnethill.com

Look for a high thread count. Target has some nice quality sheets too. Not sure about your area but we have outlets (Wamsutta, West Point Steven, Eddie Bauer). I have done a few duvets from Wamsutta sheets.
