Create your personal attention for a sofa bed slipcover in an easy-care fabric. The main purposes of a cover for the sofa bed are to protect the upholstery. Or to hide the upholstery if it is already stained or otherwise damaged. Making your own alternative sleeve will save money and allow a wider range of options in the fabric and colors.
Measure the sofa-bed in the closed position (sofa). Measure the length of one outer edge to the other. (Measure from the edges of the armrests, if any, otherwise measure from the outer edges of the seat.) Consider the preferred primary color for the sofa bed cover and the type of printing, if any. For example, in a home with pets, consider a cover with a small print. So the skin does not show as much. For homes with children, dark colors may be the best choice, such as burgundy, forest green or night blue. smaller copies camouflage fouling better than large prints.
Place the quilt evenly on the sofa bed. Put it on so that the length of the quilt follows the length of the sofa as if one end of the seats was the head of the bed. Adjust it so that the sides and the entire front are covered, and tucked in. Tuck the fabric as deeply as necessary to get the material to hang at the correct length on the front and sides. Use the laces or elastic straps to tie the draped fabric on the back of the back legs of the sofa to hold it in place. To use two, sew them along, or hang one over the back and the other over the seat. Put the edges of both in the crease between the backrest and the seat.
