    Default Making the bed at 10pm lol

    Just made my bed now. Realised just before that the bed had not been made. Putting the new sheets on is fine, but I hate hate hate putting on a doona cover!

    What's your tips for putting doona covers on without getting tangled in it?

    Stand on the bed!!

    I can't do a quilt transfer without standing on the bed & climbing in the cover.

    Omg I hate putting doona covers on

    I have the doona cover inside out then put my hands in each corner of the cover then grab the doona then pull it through (if that makes sense)

    Lol I hate putting the doona cover on too! It's good when my me and my partner do it together lol makes it so much easier but when i do it by myself i grab one corner and put it into it's corner then do the same with the other corner and then put the bottom corners in and shake shake shake til it's all good and do the buttons up. I really hope that makes sense to you haha!

    Argh, I hate when you're all ready to go to sleep and the bed's not made up

    I put the doona cover inside out, grab two corners of the doona and line it up with the 2 furthest corners of the cover sort of scrunch it all up to get to the end, then just shake the doona cover over the top. LOL i think that makes no sense written down, sorry!

    I used to crawl into them and place the doona in lol.
    Now DF does this job. He puts the doona in, holds the corners and shakes the cover over the doona, if I help him I just pull the cover over so he doesn't have to shake it like a mad man. He is pretty good at it, but he is a perfectionist so won't stop until its perfect.
