    Any ideas on how I could do this without attaching velcro to the box spring? Hubby would probably shoot me if I did it to our new mattress set. And I really don't want to sew velcro to fabric like the traditional bedskirt methods. I'm open for ideas. Thanks

    We have a bed skirt on our bed. It isn't homemade and doesn't attach to our box spring. It is a ruffled skirt along the sides of the bed attached to a sheet that is underneath our mattress.

    So--think of a sheet with long ruffled sides. You could make this longer (taller from floor to cover your box spring) and then sew it to muslin which would be hiding underneath your mattress.

    I purchased a yardage of snaps found in the curtain making section of Hancock Fabrics. I have a king size bed and cannot move the mattress very easily. I used an old sheet, acually a couple and sewed to the size I wanted hanging just a couple inches over the edge and made a bed skirt that I could easily snap into place and remove for washing -- However, the snaps were expensive and I would like to change the bed skirt -- velco might help, but with pet hair, etc. I don't know.

    My bed skirt in a plain rectangle for the box spring with the dust ruffle on three sides and it doesn't move around. Guess we lay too still in the bed. LOL

    You use the sticky-back velcro. It will come off if you want, but it is there to serve its purpose without damaging the fabric of the box spring. This is an old method that I have used, nothing new about it.

    That is pretty nifty. I will put it on the list of things to try. Thanks for posting.

    I have used the sticky stuff once and it was a real mess...ugh when I think of that project! I will probably use an old sheet and use sew on velcro around it but I'm still thinking of other ways too. Thanks for all the comments.

    I made a white dust ruffle with lace along the bottom. It is gathered onto an old sheet cut to fit the top of the mattress. I used a machine ruffler attachment and made the dust ruffle gathered, then sewed to the sheet (measure length so it is to the floor. I use it on top of the box springs with my mattress on top and change the quilts I love to use as bedspreads. This has been a good investment for me. If you don't have a ruffler, you can also change settings on a serger so that it will gather.

    Great idea! Thanks for sharing. I am going to do that in my guest room and in my hubby's study on the antique beds. Then I might do it for the bed in my room. I will have to go hunting to find the fabric to match my bed quilts. I change them seasonally. The quilts on the other two beds stay the same and I have fabric to make skirts for both of them.
