Grace is reading a book on her new fold out chair.
It is a versatile piece of furniture that can be used partially folded out to sit up and read a book in comfort.
It also folds up into a compact chair to fit small spaces.
Lay it out flat and this chair suddenly converts into a bed.
Just right for sleeping at a friends house.
Let’s make a fold out chair/bed together!
- 4 sheets of felt
- Duck tape
Fold each piece of felt into quarters.
Wrap 2 strips of Duck tape around the center of the felt lengthwise.
Repeat with all 4 pieces of felt.
Stack two pieces of felt together
Connect the two pieces together with a strip of tape. Place half the tape on the edge of one of the pieces of felt.
Wrap the tape down onto the side.
Cut off the extra tape length and fold the tape around to the other side.
When you open up the two pieces and lay them flat you will see the exposed tape.
Place a piece of tape down the middle.
Adding the tape to connect the pieces in this way will make it so you can fold up the bed.
Add a piece of tape to the flat side of each end to finish.
Clip the tape down the center.
Fold over the tape to cover up the felt that is peeking out.
Tape together two more pieces of felt.
Stack the pieces you taped folded accordion style. Two of the unfinished ends should line up.
Connect the ends by placing half the tape on one side.
Wrap the tape over the side.
Fold the tape onto the other side.
Open it open flat with the exposed edge facing up
As before, place a piece of tape over the seam.
Leave a little extra tape on the ends.
When you fold the Duck tape back over to the other side it will restrict the foldability of this doll bed.
Simply clip down the center of the overlapping tape and press the tape in place.
Finish off by covering the last end with Duck tape.
This little fold out chair/bed is ready for play. It folds up compact.
That’s perfect for a chair.
Decorate with a few pillows and this cushiony furniture is ready for play!
Fold down the cushion under the legs. Yes, go ahead and get comfy!
Lay the whole bed flat for a nice nap.
