If you need a new mattress for your daybed but are trying to save money, then this is a good alternative.
Let’s assume you require a 48″ by 75″ sheet of mattress foam for a daybed. You can purchase a solid piece of foam rubber and stitch a cover for it. That will get you a great, comfy mattress for a third of the price of a mattress from a store.
The same method can be used to make couch cushions. Measure the length and width of each one, then order the appropriate number of pillows. You can cover them with a lovely fabric if you like. Cushion covers are simple to make. They consist of two flat fabric pieces the size of the cushion plus four side pieces. This is true for a daybed mattress as well.
