If I could sew i'd make my own, but I don't so i'm out searching for "the one".

It's been 8 months and I still can't find "the one"

I've been to every department store, franchise and small business, i've been to amazon and overstock... nothing.

The bedroom is a lighter green color kind of like key lime I suppose with a bali (indonesian) theme.

The duvet we have on there now is southwestern, so it doesn't go.

I've been looking at darker colour duvetslike a brown or maroonish colour, or solid green, but everytime I think i've found "the one" there is something I don't like about it.

For instance, the material would be right but big buttons would be visible at the top, or if it's not big buttons there is some kind of pattern, if it's not that then it's not the right material but the right colour.

It's insanity I tell you, INSANITY!!!

You could have learned to sew in that time!

In the grand scheme of's still just a blanket, so don't sweat the small sh*t!

If you found a material you like you could just stitch it onto the old cover -- you could even do it by hand --

TrueLies- Get to an Ikea store- I dont know if there's any in your area, if not go to their website. The have the most beautiful, designer color, matching curtains, pillow shams....real cheap$. I just bought a beautiful queen size one with the shams for 29.00 seriously.

I'll have to order the catalogue then. Were you going to the United States Ikea because thats where I went and got nothing but pillows and mattress pads.

I swear I looked top and bottom and nothing.
