Easy Pillow Bed




I made a pillow blanket. It's used as a bed, chair, etc. You only need a few things, a twin sized sheet, a few pillows, and a way to sew it all together. It is really simple and easy to make!

Step 1: What You Need

To make this pillow blanket, you will need:

1 twin size sheet

5 pillows

Sewing machine and/or needle and thread

Step 2: Fold

Fold half of the sheet in at 21 inches.

Step 3: Fold Again

Fold the other half so that the part that you just folded is on the other side. Overlap it so that the pillow you are using will fit inside the sheet. You do not want it to be too wide or too skinny.

Step 4: Sew

Pin and sew the two ends shut.

Step 5: Turn

Turn it inside out.

Step 6: Sew

Sew across 4 times to make 5 pillow slots at intervals of about 18.5 inches.

Step 7: Stuff It

The back will open like a sham, allowing you to put the pillows inside.

Step 8: Enjoy!

You can make more covers for the pillows and trade them out, or sew the back of the sham shut.
