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.

    • Hi Polly!
      No, I did not stitch the knot, but you certainly could do that. You could also safety pin it, if there are no little ones running around the house;-)

      Thanks for your question!
