Methods To Make A No Sew Pillow
Are you wondering how to make a no sew pillow?
If you are having a hard time thinking about making a no-sew pillow cover, worry no more as we are about to teach you how to make a no-sew pillow.
I have come across several methods to make a no-sew pillow, but these three are the easiest of them all.
The tying the knot, insert method, and the use of an adhesive tape.
#1. Tying the knot
It’s not like in weddings kind of ‘tying the knot.’ In this method, all you have to do is to tie a knot. As simple as that. But you are going to need only three materials.
Those materials are the fabric that you will use as your pillowcase, your fillings, and a pair of scissors.
After you have prepared these three, you can now proceed with the first step and measure the edges.
Measure the size of the pillow that you would want. Make sure that you left a 2-3 inches allowance on all edges.
Next is to cut strips of fabric for about 1 centimetre each on all four sides. After doing that, tie to a knot 3 sides of the pillowcase.
Tying the sides should be done one by one. Ensure that it is tightly tied up to avoid spilling the fillings later.
If you are going to use poly-fiber fill, you can leave a small part open for you to slip right in the filling.
Put the desired amount of filling until you are satisfied with your pillow’s fluffiness. After filling, tie the remaining knots. Then you’re done!
#2. Insert method
The following method will require you the same procedures as the tying the knot part. However, you will not tie the knot.
Just like the steps in measuring and leaving 2-3 inches of allowance on each side, this time, you will have to cut the sides, 1 inch each perpendicular to the sides.
Then cut a small opening in the middle part. This is where we will go to the inserting portion. Do this step to all the strips available.
Next is the inserting. Take the first strip and insert it into the second strip with the use of a crochet hook. If you don’t have one, you could use a paper clip instead.
Do this in the following strips but leave a space for you to insert your filling. Insert desired to fill afterwards.
After you have inserted the filling, you can continue with the remaining strips’ insertion until you come across the last pair.
At the last pair, tie them up. And then you are now finished with your project! No sweat, right?
#3. Using an adhesive
This last method is what I found unique. It is merely attaching the two fabrics and likes taping them together.
In this method, I like to advise you to use Heat n Bond. It is an adhesive for holding fabrics together.
You will need to have your fabric, the Heat n Bond adhesive tape, and a clothes iron.
To do this, put the tape on the edges of the fabric. Peel off the upper part and place the second layer of material.
For both fabrics to stick together, you will have to iron them. Gently iron the parts with adhesives on. It will seal both materials.
Do these on the three sides of the fabric, leaving a small opening for the fillings later. After the third side is finished, turn it inside out.
Iron it again to have the definite shape that you want. Then put the fillings. After that, put some adhesive also on the remaining side that is to be closed.
One should follow the same procedure—iron it to ensure the sealing of the fabrics. You will now have your new no-sew pillow!
The following methods you have read are easy to make and could only take up to 20 minutes of your time!
These methods on how to make a no sew pillow do not only save you the time and effort in sewing, but they will also save you your budget.
Try using the fabrics of your old clothes.
Thrifting could save some of your expenses too.
Why don’t you try using old clothes as fabrics instead of buying new ones?
I hope you have satisfied your hobby with these easy steps and levelled up your living room with the know-how to make a no-sew pillow cover.
