I'm looking for ideas on making bedskirts. I have several yards of a striped fabric that is the wide sashing in my queen quilt. I want to make a bedskirt that doesn't need that dreaded muslin platform that you have to insert between the mattress and boxspring. I want to attach it w/sticky Velcro or something directly to the box springs. I think. I'm open to any and all suggestions. Concerned that the loopy side will have all kinds of things stuck to it over time; and that it won't stay stuck.
I have a dog, Bear (shepard/husky cross), that sheds so much that I have dust elephants. She also crawls under the bed. Do you have any idea what a white dust ruffle looks like when she's crawled under the bed a few dozen times.
I'm planning on serging the top edge and then using my ruffler/pleater to gather the fabric. Haven't used it yet, so will have to figure that out, too. Planning on doing 3 separate pieces.
Thanks for your suggestions.
