Anthropologie Knockoff : Georgina Bedding

Isn’t this Gorgeous???
It’s Anthropologie’s Georgina Bedding, this is what I chose to “Knockoff” for last week’s So You Think You’re Crafty challenge!
It was a busy week, I only had one day to make it and one day to take photo’s.  The “making” wasn’t so bad, I had all my materials ready, the babies were being unbelievably good so “mommy can sew” about 5 hours during the day and a couple hours after the girls went to bed and it was all finished.
It was the picture day that was going to be tricky….  See those black clouds rolling in?
It was a dark and dreary morning, constant rain. 
The little girls and I drove over to our farm, when there was a little bit of bright blue sky over to the west.  I knew just where I wanted to take the pictures, it was just a matter of hauling the bed out there and arranging everything in between downpours.
In our rush to get out the door, I slipped on flip flops – not a great choice to wear in an wet, grassy, rocky pasture, not to mention the occasional thistle.  I layed out a tarp, my Great Grandma Ediths rug and set up the bed.  The little girls worked together to carry out the headboard, they were so excited to be setting up their bed in the middle of a field!
After a few gusts of wind, the storm clouds passed and the sun even came out for a bit!
My little helpers. 
 Here is my tutorial!
 
Thank You – to all of you who voted, I feel so very honored!

  3. This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! My daughter loves Anthropologie and when she saw this bedding, she thought mom could make this !!!!!!! So when she came over this weekend for a visit she told me this is what she wants for her birthday this year (in July). Only her bed is a QUEEN size….so I had better get started on it, huh? HA HA!! Thank you so much for the tutorial on making the bedding. It is amazing and soooooo beautiful. I get done with it I will send pictures to you. I don’t know if I can get it done in a day like you did. But I am going to give it all I got at making it for her.

      How do I send pictures to you? I started making the bedding three days ago. I have one pillow case done. Today I decided I need to make all the flowers first. They are so cute!!! I would love for you to see them. I finished all my “daisies” 1 large and 5 little. As for the pillow cases, I applied a “daisy” one each of those, so instead of 3 small I needed 5 small. Hope to hear from you soon so I can send pictures.

    • I want to attempt to make this bedding, its beautiful! I’m just not sure what size sheets to use for a queen size bed. Would sewing two kings together and then gathering those be enough do you think? If the anonymous poster reads this I would love to hear how you sized up!

    where did you get this pattern? If its your own, you are truly an artist! Just beautiful!!

  5. I just found this and am so amazed at what an incredible job you did and how quickly you completed it! I am considering giving it a try but haven’t gotten up the courage yet as I don’t know that my sewing skill level is as good as yours…but seriously kuddos to you, this is absolutely beautiful and your tutorial probly helped alot of people like myself who definately could not afford to buy the real McCoy!

  6. Hi besserina! I am so amazed that you were able to recreate this bedding so perfectly! I would love to make a white duvet, bed skirt and pillows for a California king size bed. I have never attempted anything like this so I have no idea what the measurements would be or how much fabric to buy! Can you advise as to what I would need to make this in a cal king size? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!
