Finally, I made something inspired by pictures on Pinterest. I saw pillow beds on Pinterest and pinned it straight away – what a great idea! Basically sew a cover that lines up pillows back to back, and a bed/mattress is born, perfect for naps, TV time, and general lounging around on the floor.
When I searched more about it on the net, it occurred to me that most tutorials are either (1) simply sewing ready-made pillowcases together, or (2) sewing a bedsheet into sections to hold pillows. I wanted to use my own fabrics and have all the ‘sections’ made from different fabrics, so I made one from scratch. I had to think about the construction process.
Oops…Step 8 isn’t missing. I got distracted when I was numbering the steps. Now let’s make Step 8 to be: “Sit for a while and take a rest”.
Now, what about the 826 other pins on my Pinterest board…?
