I am so excited to share this post, why? Becasue I finally made pillows. Yup, “no sew” pillows for our front entrance. I was hesitant at first but quickly decided to give it a try. Now I want to buy more fabric and design and make more pillows. The print is gorgeous and trending in the world of design. Banana Leaf prints add a modern touch to any room in your home. Because of its large and bold print, the fabric was a perfect choice for our home. Ideal for indoor and outdoor decorating too. My “no sew” pillows have velcro added to one side for easy access to the pillow insert for easy removal and easy to wash the fabric. I prefer to store my pillows away to keep them from getting ruined during The harsh weather. My “no sew” pillows are perfect for interior decorating too, the print is my favorite right now, and I am crushing on Green these days, how about you? With modern flair and a Palm Beach vibe, these pillows would look great nestled anywhere in your home.
let’s take a look at the pillows and how they turned out. I’m going to do my best to share my step by step tutorial, how you can DIY “no sew” your own pillows too.

Tutorial: How to make your own “no sew” pillows
Let me start by saying; everyone goes about it differently. It was the easiest and efficient way for me. I’m very impatient when it comes to small DIY projects because I want it done like now. So, if I can make four 12″no sew “ pillows in one hour, I can happily say it was a success, and I would say “I’m making more pillows this week.”
Step 1– Start by laying out your material on a flat surface, place your pillow on top of your fabric. Fold your fabric over while measuring all four sides, allowing 3″ extra for folding. So basically you’re cutting two 12″ pieces of fabric and adding an extra 3″ for bonding the two pieces together on all three sides.
Step 2– Once you have cut all your pieces, two for each pillow, makes eight pieces (3″ for folding and adding heat and bond). Place one of your pieces on the ironing board, folding over about an inch, then add a strip of heat and bond. Follow packaging for instructions. Once you ironed the heat and bond for one minute remove the backing and bond your second piece of fabric to the one laying on the ironing board. Just enough to hide any loose threads from cutting. Do this for all three sides bonding both folded piece together.
TIP: press firmly on the iron and don’t be afraid to give steam.
Step 3– After I repeated steps 1 and 2 for all the pillows, and allowed to cool after adding the heat and bond. I added a strip of velcro the same width of the pillow, then inserted the pillow, and pressed the velcro firmly together. I did this for all four pillows and there you have it, four “no sew” pillows.
