DIY Fold out sofa bed




So, your parents are coming for Christmas and you don't have a guest bed...and you also don't want one as it takes up too much space. What do you do? Well, first thought might be that they can sleep on the couch? (ooh that's a bit harsh!) And it might not be such a fair deal if you have a DIY pallet couch for them to rest their weary bones on...

So we thought why not make a fold out sofa bed?! We bought some foam, stitched some fabric together, eventually managed to get the foam inside the fabric (not as easy as it might sound, so don't give up!), made some cushions and there you are, our very own super simple DIY fold out sofa bed! (as so kindly modeled by Guinness below)






This is what we used:

Foam size: 137 x 15cm (x 3 pieces)

Fabric pieces: 160 x 138,5cm (x 3 pieces) and 66,5 x 16,5cm (x 6 pieces for the side walls)

Here's how we did it:

We have loads to choose from, all available with a choice of covers, most of which can be machine-washed or dry cleaned.

Nice post. Thanks for sharing information about buy sofa bed online and sofa bed price. I am using air sofa since 5 years, due to my small home size.

Thanks for sharing your sofa bed instructions. This is exactly what I want to make for my grandchildren when the come to stay. Can I just ask about the measurement of the foam.. does the 137cm refer to the width and length so therefore a square piece of foam cut to this size three times? and is the 15cm the depth (thickness) of the foam? Also what seam allowances did you use. Sorry I’m quite new to sewing so need more details than most!
