Measure the duvet cover using the pillows, and cut to desired length and width. Make sure to leave 5-inch allowance for the width from the size of your pillow.

Cut the top half of the duvet cover lengthwise so that the bottom edge sticks out a few inches further. The width of the top half should now more or less fit the length of your pillow. The longer edge will serve as a “pocket” later on so that the pillows are not exposed.

Turn the duvet cover inside out and hem all the raw edges.
