Optional: Pillow-Case Style Slipcover

Rather than leaving the sides open, sew them together for a fitted slipcover. We chose a bold fabric pattern for modern appeal. Simply trace headboard onto fabric following steps one to four above, then rather than sewing just the top, sew all four sides together. Tip: Be sure to measure carefully and allow for the width of the bed when planning seam allowances. Like the steps above, leave the bottom open and hem it to the appropriate length.
