St. Patrick’s Day No-Sew Throw Pillow by PinkWhen
First of all, I love decorating for all of the holidays. When I was growing up my mom decorated for certain holidays, and I always remember having fun parties at school as well. I try my best to make some sort of statement and celebrate every little holiday and occasion that I can, and the kiddos all seem to enjoy it.
Sometimes, I will go all out for a project, and then other times I like to take the easy way out. This would be one of those projects! By “easy way”, I mean I don’t have to unpack my heavy sewing machine and clear off a spot. For this project, we are going to skip sewing and go straight to ironing!
St. Patrick’s Day No Sew Throw Pillow
- Ultra-Hold Heat -n- Bond
- 1 piece of felt (cut to a four leaf clover)
- 1 14″ x 14″ pillow form
- 1 15″ x 15″ piece of fabric
- 1 15″ x 10″ piece of fabric
- 1 15″ x 8″ piece of fabric
Step 1: Take your 15″ x 10″ and 15″ x 8″ pieces of fabric and iron them. I used flour sack towels as my fabric.
Step 2: Place your heat-n-bond strips along the outside edges of your 15″ x 15″ piece of fabric.
Step 3: Place your fabric pieces, the 15″ x 10″ and 15″ x 8″ pieces of fabric to make the perfect 15″ x 15″ square. Your pieces on top will overlap creating an envelope. Be sure to have the seams of the sack towards the middle.
Step 4: Iron the heat-n-bond pieces into place for a few minutes. Move all the way around the square until you have completely closed the pillow casing.
Step 5: Where the envelope portion is overlapping you will need to cut two little strips of heat-n-bond to place there and iron down.
Step 6: Place your hand inside the pillow and cut the corners. Be careful not to cut the heat-n-bond off.
Step 7: Turn your pillowcase inside out. Place the clover in the middle of the pillowcase and adhere to the case using the Heat -n- Bond.
Step 8: Add your pillow form and your project is complete!
Do you need a better “visual” for this project? Well you are in LUCK (excuse the pun) because I also created a video tutorial showing you all of these steps. Now, you can also make this quick and easy no-sew pillow cover and watch everything step-by-step with instructions.
I always love quick and easy projects that turn out well and allow me to keep my space clean and ready for the next project.
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy St. Patrick’s Day no-sew throw pillow, and make sure to check out the video I made to go along with the project!
