    Default How to keep doona up inside its cover???

    Ok so I'm wondering if everyone has this problem or of its just us??

    Whenever we buy a good quality quilt/doona cover our doona always slips down inside it so you will go to sleep with it all in the cover nicely & sometimes wake up with it moved down inside the cover so basically the quilt cover feels just like two sheets up on our arm area. IYKWIM??

    If we buy cheap cotton covers from Kmart the quilt/doona stay up inside it fine!

    Is there something I'm missing or something I should go to stop this? I even used tiny saftey pins in the corners a few weeks ago to hold it up but I kept getting scared they were going to come undone & spike me!

    Velcro. I got so sick of redoing the doona I put Velcro on the doona and the cover and made it stay. Kind of falls apart after a few washes though.

    Rather than tiny safety pins, what about old school cloth nappy pins with the protective head?

    We have the same problem with our spare bed and it is because it has a feather down quilt, so it slips down when the feathers settle. Our bed has a wool quilt and there aren't any problems. Are you using a feather quilt?

    My wife sewed ribbons in the inside corners of the cover and on the corners of the doona and we tie them in.

    i actually use a big safety pin. Pint it from the inside and when the pin is a bit bigger you can gather a little bit more material under it, so it never comes undone. Ribbons are also a good idea too i reckon

    I have a snap press so I have put 4 snaps across the top edge of the quilt/cover (tried just 2 but it didn't cut it!), and 2 on the bottom edge in the corners. It works really well.

    I've actually never had this problem... Maybe the doona fabric makes a diff? Our quilt is wool with a 100% cotton outside.. Then that is put into a cotton quilt cover

    safety pins in the corners and in the middle of each side if necessary.

    also might be your doona is the problem not the covers though if its not doing it in the cheapie covers than maybe not
