Then attach the fabric to the bed frame (the main part of the box) and cut off the desired amount of cloth. Glue the fabric to the head and back. Before gluing the fabric on the bed frame, it is necessary to attach foam or cotton wool to the bottom and walls of the box. You can also lock the fabric with a stapler.
