Would I be able to dye it myself or will I have to get it professionally done ?
Hello Lindi! You may or may not be able to dye this. It will depend on what the fabric is. 100% cotton dyes the best. Blends don't always take the dye well. If you can dye it, it will not turn out as a solid color because of all the color variations in the fabric print and in time, with washing, the dye will fade. You could try just dying the square pillow cover to see what you think. Another option would be to buy or make a duvet cover for the quilt. It might be a safer option for that quilt! You can usually buy matching pillow covers too.

If you want it to be one solid color, making a cover for it would be the best option. Solid color flat sheets would work well. I hope this helps!
You can do it yourself with the following planning:
With all those patterns it would be really hard to get a solid dye job, I agree make a duvet cover with two sheets. I make them with a flannel sheet on one side for coziness and a colored sheet on top, and use an upholstry zipper for the bottom since I hate doing button holes. The bonus of duvet covers you can easily wash to keep your comforter clean, and you can change color or patterns at any time. I make them for all my disable clients beds.
Buy some really nice sheets and make a duvet cover. You are not going to be happy with dying, because it will most likely be uneven in color and a comforter would be really hard to dye.
Hey guys, thank you all so much for your detailed advice. The bed set was available on my local freebie site and I thought I’d ask about the dying before grabbing.......after looking at your replies I have decided not to grab after all but huge thanks for helping me. Happy New Year to you all.
