Tired of having a sleepless night? Hate putting the doona covers on and off your Doona? I know I do. Sick of your Doona squishing up in the bottom of your covers?
Well you are going to like what I have for you today!
I came across some awesome videos while playing around on my Instagram account only two weeks ago.
A company I’ve never heard of before, with a product I haven’t seen before. I was excited!
I approached the company for a sample of their products and they were generous enough to send me a set. This is where the fun began.
Doona cover clips, What a clever idea. I was planning to suffer through, many more years of DOONA WARS. Until the “Zavarge Doona Clips” came into my life! Little plastic attachments that you connect to both your Doona cover and your Doona.
Time for a sewing class! Who better to do this, but with my beautiful mother in law. The woman who has fixed many teddy bears with torn ears, school uniforms that needed to be lengthened or shortened, and many other random things for my family.
Out came the sewing machine and my new toys. Let the games begin…
Follow these steps and check out my pictures to see just how easy this actually was to do!
Step 1: Attach the Male side of the clips to all corners of your DOONA with the rounded corner of doona on top, stitch 2 rows onto the thin flat edge of the male side of clip. Make sure all clips are facing the same way!
Step 2: Attach the Female side of the clips to all internal corners of your DOONA COVER, with the top or bottom hem folded over, place the female side of the clip on top of the seam facing away from the body of the cover.
Step 3: Stitch 2 rows onto the thin flat edge of clip.
Step 4: When the cover is turned right side out, the clips will all face inward allowing easy connection.
Step 5: Look at your hard work, and clip and unclip to your hearts delight. You are a star and you deserve to have a bit of fun!
Step 6: Ensure you take the compulsory selfie showing everyone just how clever you are. (But seriously people, all I did was cut the threads, my mother in law did all the hard work, but lets not let the truth get in the way of a good yarn.) Someone had to take the pictures and write this post after all 😉
Overall this project was both fun and a great success. I need to buy more clips now and do this with the rest of the Doona’s and covers in the house.
There are two things that I believe would have improved my experience though.
- When I received my package it didn’t come with an instruction guide. A paper with pictures and instructions would be very handy. Not everyone has easy access to the internet or computer option as they sew.
- The other thing that would be a great add on sale item, would be for either the male or female clips to be available to buy separately. For every one Doona , I have 3 or more covers in my house.
On another note, not everyone has access to a sewing machine, so an option would be to have the plastic clips perforated along the flat end, so users can manually sew the clips onto their doona using a needle and thread.
At $20, for a set of 4, this is a great buy and a wonderful idea.
