How to Make NO SEW pillows... and a blanket.
This is for all of my no sew friends. Yes, YOU can do this.
Here's a tutorial on how to make a small pillow. You do the same thing for a bigger pillow or a blanket..... so easy!
You will need some fleece fabric. You will need 2 layers stacked.
You will also need some good scissors. Cut the shape a few inches larger than you want the final project to be. This gives extra fabric for the ties.
Cut a square out of the corners. Then cut your strips for the ties as seen below.
Do not stress this... this is a forgiving project.
Add your pillow form. I used 2 hand towels because I decided to do this tutorial at the last minute... Tie the corners.
I suggest that you find a comfy seat and tie all the way around the pillow. Tie them very tight (in a knot) so you don't see your pillow form.
Now you have the cutest pillow ever. I LOVE the texture. So much more fun than a boring old sewn pillow. For those of you who are very crafty (Danni) you could decorate the front.
I also made a blanket. First, I washed and dried the fleece so that I'd be able to wash this in the future. I didn't measure. I just cut the width of my scissors all the way around. Sadly, I had to sit on the floor to cut and tie this all the way around.... I'm too old for this.
Ibuprofen was needed.
I LOVE my new pillows and blanket. See my tootsie roll bolster? I just rolled some fabric around my pillow and tied the ends. I'll remove it after Christmas. Quick and easy!
I have enjoyed decorating this Christmas more than any other. I think I might have found my Christmas decorating style??
This is random, I have to paint the french doors this coming year. I'm itching to paint them black even though white is the obvious color... we will see.
I have a few more projects to show you. Some odds and ends. I hope to finish up my decorating this week. I hope you'll come back to visit.
I hope you were inspired!
