    Ministy Makes Pillow Lounger/Bed


    Ministy Makes Pillow Lounger/Bed

    I have been meaning to make a “pillow lounger/bed” for a while now, so with my son’s movie night sleepover party coming up, it was time to give it a whirl.

    All is required is 5 pillows and some fabric. I used a nice bright blue cord we sell in our online shop that coordinated well with his room and at a wider width of 150cm it was perfect for the job in hand.

    I cut the length of the fabric at 234cm (46cm x 5 pillows plus 2cm seam allowance at each end). And used the full width of the fabric of 150cm, which was enough to wrap around the pillow (65cm x 2) with a cross over of 20cm.

    With rights sides together, I laid the fabric out lengthwise and positioned the 20cm cross over centrally at what was going to be the back. I then sewed each short using a 2cm seam allowance.

    I then turned the length through to the right side and divided the length into 5 sections, each 46cm deep using a row of pins to mark out the sections and hold the layers together.

    Stitching along each line, I made 5 pillow pockets, as I got closer to the middle, I had to roll the ends up to allow it all to fit through the gap on my sewing machine. For the last 2 rows, I turned the length around to work from the other direction to make it easier.

    All I needed to do then was stuff each of the 5 pockets with a pillow and because there was a good 20cm cross over, it kept the pillow in place without any need for a fastening.

    There are a few different ways you can use it, either flat for a bed, with a stand at the back for watching a movies,

    or even a corner seat…..lets hope it goes down well!
