I found some great fat quarters at Craft Warehouse (most, but not all, were Moda fabric) that matched the colors Ellie wanted and I started ruffling. I ruffled and ruffled and ruffled. I used two white twin sheets I had in the linen closet and made my own duvet (I filled it with a light weight comforter from Target).
I think the finished product turned out a lot like our vision and really represents Ellie’s uniqueness. I just love it!

duvet. Now the sheets match the homemade duvet! Score!

curtains to match. Maybe white ones with the heart garland across the
top and a few ruffles lining the bottom. Or maybe something less
