No Sew Pillow Tutorial!

 Let me explain something to you.... THIS IS THE EASIEST DIY PROJECT YOU COULD EVER WORK ON. Seriously. So easy, so inexpensive, and you will be so pleased with the results. There is no sewing required, no real measuring either. You just simply cut, fold, tie, and tuck. Let's get started!



First, you want to select your fabric. I got mine at Walmart for $1.50 per yard. A pillow for around $1.50? Yes please. I chose a light weight almost sheer fabric. Which worked amazingly! I had originally got it to make a dress out of, but thought I had would give the tutorial I found here, a try!  Now that I know it's awesome I will go buy some different coordinating fabrics that actually match with my living room, and do some more!


Step 1)  Cut your fabric and start the wrapping process! Your "measurements" are as follows: Your fabric should be 2 and 1/2 times as tall as your pillow and 3 times as wide. If you can wrap a present you can make this pillow. I am not even kidding, do it! You want to put your pillow in the middle after you cut the fabric and then fold over the pillow like below! (just like when you first start wrapping a present)

  Step 2) Fold the edges (like a present)



 Step 3)  Fold the edges again over the top of your previous folds Til the ends get a little more pointy. Like this.


  Step 4) Bring the edges up over the sides like this.



 Step 5) Tie a knot. Just a simple knot.



Step 6) Tuck the tails of the knot underneath the knot. Sorry best way I can explain it. Til it looks like this... Tah dah!



You can also turn your pillow around if you don't want to see the knot, rosette like thing. P.S. That's what I did with the black and white striped pillow! 


Give it a try and send me a picture of the results. I promise you won't regret it! 

Let me know if you have any questions! I love to hear from you!

  13. I just stumbled across your blog today. all I can say is you are heaven sent! Who wants to pay $45.00 a decorative pillow?! Not me! And I can't sew so this is PERFECT! I am now trying to convince my husband to redo our outdated counter tops like the ones you posted. Fabulous!! Keep up the creativity and inspiration!
