Faux fur bedspread or plaid? To choose according to your style – Olivier Desforges.
More than just a blanket, the bedspread is a decorative element in its own right. It sets the tone in the decoration of the room.

What is engaging with the homemade bedspread is that it is possible to make a tailor-made model to your taste and reflect your personality. To get the right dimensions, measure the height of the bed and multiply it by two. Then add the result obtained to the length and width of the mattress.
If it is a purely decorative accessory, a plaid, a strip of fabric as a centrepiece for the bed, or a simple child’s duvet cover set can bring character to the whole. The trend is for everything to be mismatched but in a complementary harmony, as the mix and match recommend.
Choosing the right style for a trendy bedspread
The bedspread style should be chosen carefully to fit harmoniously with the room’s ambience and decoration, including the curtains, painting, light fixtures, etc.

Make a patchwork bedspread.
You need three different fabrics, plain or printed, with matching colours. Fleece and another fabric for the bottom are also required. The most important thing is to stay in the tone of the room.
To make the patchwork, here are the steps to follow.
Cut the fabrics to the same size. Choosing the right cutting tool is necessary to have an aesthetic result and save time. It is best to opt for a medium-sized rotary cutter. After cutting out all the pieces needed to make the bedspread, assemble them alternately. The patchwork is made in rows. You have to sew together the pieces that make up a row. Fold the seams with an iron so that the junctions are flat. Do the same to assemble all the rows.
The next step is to assemble the patchwork with the background fabric and the fleece. To do this, lay them flat, laying the background fabric first, then the fleece and finally the patchwork. Finally, sew the edges together, put the bedspread right side up and stitch the whole thing together. It is essential to iron the seams to obtain a beautiful finish.

It is advisable to have enough pieces to cover the bed completely. Then just put them together. Depending on the bed size, allow an average of 150 units to make a crocheted patchwork. To further emphasize the bed, it is better to crochet units of different colours. However, these must be matched and in harmony with the room’s atmosphere.
