Don’t throw your old sofa, instead give it a new look with the help of new bed sheets/ quilt covers. These DIY sofa covers are so easy to make – no sewing required!


  • 3 Quilt covers/Bedsheets Cotton, Silk


  1. Measure all the sides of your old sofa and cut the Quilt cover/bed sheet according to it. keep an inch extra cloth before cutting.
  2. Put the new cut cloth pieces on your sofa and glue it using hot glue.
  3. Glue the new cloth on all the sides of the sofa and then staple all the joints with upholstery stapler for a strong finish.

Notes... I change my 5 seater old sofa with the help of 3 quilt covers I bought from BIGW at 9$ each
1 upholstery stapler from Bunnings ware house at 18$
Glue gun I already had at home I just bought a pack of 25 glue sticks from BIG W at 3$

  • wow what a difference. great job. thanks for sharing


  • The result is great. I just threw out all my cushions as they kept being thrown on the floor and not used. Great having less clutter around too.


  • Simple but beautiful done. Thx for sharing


  • Looks great! Quilt covers are often on sale, so definitely cheaper than buying fitted lounge covers!


  • Makes the longue look new, thanks for sharing


  • What a difference. It makes the room much more vibrant and colourful!


  • I am not a crafty person at all, but what an absolutely brilliant idea. The looks are endless.


  • This is great. But i would prefer different colour.


  • I would never have thought of doing this. It looks good but i think if i did it it wouldn’t look so good.


  • What a brilliant crafty idea and so cheap to make


  • Our couch has all the frame, arms and back that would be impossible to cover like this. Also new doona covers aren’t cheap – not for nice ones. If you really don’t like your couch, maybe look for a good second hand one. There are lots on online auction and marketplaces – often even free. I don’t like the idea of a glue gun holding the fabric well either. This would end up looking possibly worse.


  • These are great


  • you could put easterners like zip or buttons so you could take them off to wash them too, great idea


  • What a super idea and so creative. Could be so reasonable as well especially because sometimes quilt covers can be picked up on clearance tables.


  • I’m not sure I’d dare – yours look great, though.
