Simple No Sew Pillows

Yes, it's been done and done. But not by me! A easy no sew pillow.  Barb at Grits and Glamour is having a Keep it Simple Party, which was just the push I needed to finish the pillows (yes, two of them!).  This is what I started with...

A half yard of material from Walmart ($1.74), already had the Heat & Bond and the transfer paper.  I found the monogram on line a while back (sorry, don't remember where). Also had the stuffing left over from another project.  So this was simple and cheap!


 I really went simple..easy. No measuring, just folded in half, cut  and then ironed smooth. Then I folded in the bottom and sides, ironed...easy!  Next I put the monogram on, and you guessed.. ironed.


Then it was time to add the Heat & Bond to the sides...



Then there was only the stuffing left and the last side to "bond up".  So what do you think?




Simple, cute, easy...my kind of project! I can't wait to see what you did!

Toni, Your pillows are darling and so easy. I like it because it's no-sew. They really look nice in your rockers.

No sew pillows - awesome. I've tried doing no sew pillows but they fell apart. I've had mixed results with the heat bond tape....but its most likely user error. Your pillows are beautiful, and I love the monogram initial you chose. dafont.com has some great free fonts (I'm not a sponsor or anything - just wanted to share the info).

I am a no-sew anything fan. I love how you left the raw edges, it just adds to your pillow. They turned out fantastic. Thanks so much for joining in my very first Keep It Simple Party. Blessings, Barb

I think they look great! Love that kind of project, and my initial too! :)

I was happy to hear WalMart is going to continue their fabric dept. So many of them closed them, mine still had a much scaled down one, but, no other fabric stores around!
Have a great weekend, here from Open House Party.

BRILLIANT. Especially for us non-sewing people. Ha! I started to write non-sewers, then saw it looked like sewer. Anyway...great job.

So cute! Great job on these ~ you've encouraged me to give this a try. I haven't done the monograms like that so keep your fingers crossed! :-)

Your pillow looks so expensive - I've never tried using the heat bond stuff but I'm thinking I should try based on your results
