Metal trundle bed is a great space-saver, but a plain bedspread will drag on the floor when used on a trundle bed. Excess length can catch in the wheels when you press the pulley under the bed, ripping the fabric and damage the wheels. Transform an ordinary quilted bedspread in a roll cover by shortening it and add-mounted corner. The spread will have a neat appearance when it is pushed under the metal trundle bed.

Measure the length, width and depth of roll the mattress. Calculate the length of the cap by adding the depth of the mattress to the length of the mattress and the addition of an inch. Measuring from the top edge, cut off the bottom of bedspread to win this length. Calculate the width of the spread by adding the width of the mattress plus twice the depth and another two inches. Cut bedspread that width.
Center coverlets, wrong side up, on the mattress with the finished top edge even with the top edge of the mattress and all sides hanging down evenly. Smoothness downs the sides and bottom of the bedspread all the way to the corners, so that a triangular flap protrudes on each of the lower corners.
Remove the bedspread and sew along the line of pins to make a fitted corner of the pulley spread. Remove the pins as you sew. Cut off the excess fabric at the corners, providing a half-inch seam allowance. Sew edge strips along the edges of the cover on both sides and at the end. Turn the cover right and place it on the metal trundle bed.
