This headboard was done for a clients 3 year old daughter. Seems she likes to jump on the bed and the parents wanted a soft landing....tee hee! So the mom traced this headboard, the dad cut it out of very heavy plywood and then the mom glued the foam on the frame. I was commissioned to make a washable slipcover. The fabric was purchased from Artee in Wilmington, NC, then was prewashed. I made the slipcover with a zipper so that it could easily be slipped on and off.
Here you can see how I pinfitted the slipcover.
If I do this type headboard again...I am going to attatch the cording to the large pieces first, eliminating all this pinning. You know..... sometimes, you just overlook the obvious!!!
Added length, with the bottom edge alread hemmed.
