From Ikea Bedspread to Slipcover and Headboard

Recently we helped our daughter move into a new apartment. She had a sofabed as a bed last year and decided to use it as a sofa and buy a bed this year.

but the sofbed that she has doesn't have a slipcover that fits it.
 So we had to get creative.
After a few trips to our local Ikea store we decided that the quilted bedspread gave us the most fabric and looked like it would hold up to wear. Plus is was a great color. Ours was purple.

We also had to buy the sewing machine at Ikea as space in the car for the 19 hr drive was tight. Check back to see it all come together and to see the review of the sewing machine.
