We scoured the internet for a good tutorial and came up empty.
I came up with this pattern and it's super easy.
All you need to know is how to measure, cut, and sew a straight line.
First you need to get a twin sheet. You can do it with fabric but it will cost you a ton more and the sheet is the perfect size. My friend bought 5 different sheets so the photos are of a few different ones, but the process is exactly the same.
I just assembly lined them.
I would suggest washing and drying your sheets before cutting.
I didn't and had to iron all of them before final assembly.
Lay out your fabric. You need a piece that measures 65 inches by 76 inches. The great thing about the sheet is that it's already hemmed at 65 inches. That will totally save time hemming the sides.
Trust me. This will turn out awesome.
You can see the hemmed finished sheet is exactly the width we need.
I cut off the top cuff from the sheet. Then measure the total length from here.
To get the length, I measured 19 inches for the pillow height and times that by 4 since there are 4 pillows in each bed. for a total of 76 inches. Trim the length of the sheet to 76 inches.
At this point you can add any embellishment you want to the large sheet piece. I'm just adding one stripe. Polka dots would be fun too or a monogram. Do any embellishment now because it will be next to impossible once you have the bed assembled.
The strips I folded over the edges like shown. This will make adding them easy.
Now mark the fabric at 18.5 inches, 37.5 inches, and 56.5 inches like shown.
I put several pins along each stitch line to hold everything in place and make sewing a straight line easy.
Sew the lines, back stitching at the folded over piece to keep it secure.
Here are the other color combinations of beds I made for my friend.
All sheets are thanks to Walmart at $4.50 a piece.
Not to bad!
Plus the color combinations are super cute!
I asked my kiddo's to try it out and they loved it.
I may have to make a few more for them for Christmas.
Sshhh don't tell!
Thanks little guy!
