I buried myself into a comforter

Once I happened to say 'I buried myself into a comforter' to make it sound more emphatic, but was critisized. Does really sound awkward? Thank you.

    You could be confusing "burrowed" (not reflexive) with "buried". You could say "I burrowed into my comforter" (where a comforter is a large, comfortable blanket or similar that makes me feel safe), used metaphorically. Think of rabbits getting somewhere safe. And of course Panjandrum's correction is also fine.
