    • Lay the top fabric (or the fabric you are keeping) on top the new base fabric.

    • Trim the new fabric to about one (1) inch longer in both height and width than the existing fabric.

    • If you have a soft tape measure, use it here for a more precise measurement.

    • Caution! Do not trim the new fabric to the exact size of the existing fabric. You need overhang to create a strong seam.

    • Line up the fabrics for pinning; center the smaller on top of the larger.

    • You always sew inside out, so the "top" side of the fabrics should be facing each other.

    • Place pins about one (1) inch apart, starting at the edge and going in towards the center of the fabric.

    • If you are sewing by hand, here is the Wiki How for hand sewn seams.

    • If you are using a sewing machine, make sure the bobbin is filled with your chosen thread and line up the fabric for a 1/4" seam.

    • Sew three (3) sides of your fabric, pulling out the pins as you go along.

    • When you complete your three sides, backstitch about 1/2", pull the fabric away from the sewing machine to give yourself a long tail of thread, and then snip the thread.

    • Flip the bed right-side out by pulling the fabric through the opening you have left.

    • Start filling the bed with your chosen stuffing.

    • We're using poly-fil, old clothing with our scent, and the scraps from our new fabric.

    • If using the optional foam densified board, you need to factor in the height of your bed and trim it down to the appropriate length and width. Image 3 shows how you can use two (2) pieces to sandwich in the other stuffing.

    • Sew the final side closed.

    • Optional:To make this step easier, you can pin the edges closed together.

    • If you would like to use an invisible closure, usually called a pillow closure, here is the YouTube video on how to do a pillow closure.
