I was thinking of something along the lines of a padded slipcover with pockets?
Has anyone made anything like that ......or have suggestions/ideas for me???
I would appreciate ANY help!!!!!
I am hoping to make something for my future daughter-in-law's future step daughter.......I know......that sounds complicated!
Anyway....for a gift!

Thanks, Julie

What is the shape & style of her daybed? You mean a slipcover to go over the back & side rails?

For my dd's bed, I got some sofa cushions for the back and rolls for the sides, bought an extra set of sheets that matched her sheets & comforter, and covered the cushions. I think the total cost was about $50, but that was 10 years ago & I also made curtains.

Those are kindof what I was thinking of.
BUt....I was wanting to add pockets on the back piece somehow........she is a reader. But then I though I could add pockets on the bedskirt too!
Thanks for sharing.......Julie

or you could make the pockets a seperate piece or pieces that she could say lay across the ends or the back piece...
