Make easy no-sew pillows

These pillow slips are so easy to make, you don’t even need to sew a single stitch!

What you need:

  • 1 metre of fabric
  • Cushion insert or filling
  • Scissors

Number of players:


Start by deciding on the size of your cushion, if you are using an insert, lay it on top of your fabric and measure a 10cm hem that is larger then the insert and cut it out.

This will become the tassels for tying later.

You need to cut out two of these, one for each side of the pillow case.

No matter what shape your pillow is, cut the fabric so it is 10cm larger than the insert.

Using sharp scissors cut a fringe of around 2cm wide and 10cm in length all the way around the fabric pillow shape.

You will need to do this to both sides of the pillow.

To save time, you can pin the two sides together and cut them together.

Next, you need to close up your pillow.

Do this by starting in one corner and tying one fringe from each side of the pillow together in a knot.

This will join both sides.

Continue to do this until you have knotted up all three sides.

Insert your filling or cushion insert then close up the top of the pillow by finishing off the knots.

You have finished your very easy pillow cover.
