How to Convert a Twin Bed Into a Couch

6 Materials
1 Day

A few months ago, we planned to move and gave away our couch but at the last minute, our moving plan got canceled. That is when I decided I will turn the twin bed we had in the storage into a couch for time being.

I wanted to make this couch pillow as budget-friendly as possible so I used supplies I already had at home. In case, you want to attempt this project and have any doubt feel free to ask me in the comments below.

Before the couch pillow

I was happy that I can use Under the bed as my son's toy storage/garage ;)

After with couch pillow without tufting

Measure and cut the fabric panels for sewing the couch pillow. One queen flat sheet perfectly fits all the patterns and has extra for making cover buttons. You can find the pattern here under the supplies used list.

Step by step process of making fabric buttons

I also attempted to make fabric buttons without buying an empty cover blank.

You can see how I made the buttons using a takeout container box and a bead as a base in the video.

Here is the final output of the couch pillow.
