I'm sorry it's not a fun reason you're on bedrest. If you're going to regularly be on bed rest (which I hope isn't the case) then it might be worth getting some kind of over-the-bed table that you could put a sewing machine on. Like a bedtray on a stand, but more stable to handle the vibrations. Learning handsewing would definitely still be good, but that'd give you some options for longer and more boring seams.
