Monday Mini Project: No Sew Pillow Cover

I can barely sew a straight line. Oh sure, when I was younger and struggled to make ends meet, I did make myself a few skirts for work. And, I have to admit, they turned out well enough for me to wear and not be embarrassed. Sewing, however is my least favorite craft. So, discovering this little gem of a tutorial from Organize Your Stuff Now made me giddy!




This is the easiest pillow cover ever. No measuring! No sewing! Just fold and tie. You need a piece of fabric 3 times as wide and twice as tall as the pillow. Place the pillow in the center, on the wrong side of the fabric.

I used pinking shears to cut the fabric so it wouldn’t fray. Start by folding the bottom half of the fabric to the center of the pillow.

Then fold the top down to the center.

Fold both ends like the picture. Sorry, I don’t know how to explain it.

Bring one side over the top of the pillow.

Then the other side.

Now tie the ends in a square knot.

Ta-Da! Hey, I don’t sew much and this is the perfect no-sew solution.

I love the knot.

And it looks great on the loveseat.

It even looks great on the back if I want to switch sides.

    Thank you for the tutorial, this looks amazing – and the no-sewing factor completely got to me – I’m trying this tomorrow!

  3. Thank you so much! I bought two pillows for my new apartment and I couldn’t decide on a third. So now I can buy the material and make what I want so easy! Thanks again:)
