I have such a fun, easy NO SEW home decor project for you today. Don’t you love a diy that turns out even better than you can imagine? That is exactly what happened with my NO SEW DISH TOWEL PILLOW! I have a dish towel issue! There are so so many pretty and fun one that I find it hard to pass them up. I don’t want to use them for dishes so I have a box of them just waiting for a project. I have a feeling my box of dish towels will get depleted quickly. Honestly, this project took about 30 minutes from start to finish. Even if you are not crafty you can do this!!!!
If you need a little pillow love in your home make one yourself!
NO SEW DISH TOWEL PILLOW DIY
2. Iron the dish towel. And put wrong side up.
3. Place the pillow insert on the dish towel and bring the bottom of it up over the insert. Leave about 3 inches of the pillow sticking out of the top of the dish towel.
4. Fold the top of the dish towel over the top of the insert. Adjust the dish towel until it makes a pleasing looking pillow. Remove the pillow from one of the open sides leaving the dish towel folded.
5. Iron the dish towel in the folded shape of your pillow.
6. Open the dish towel wrong side up on an ironing board. Put a strip of fusible webbing down the one side of the dish towel from from the bottom of the dish towel to the bottom fold line you just ironed. Fold the tea towel over to the bottom fold line and iron according to fusible webbing directions. Do the same to the other side of the dish towel making a pocket. See image above.
7. Insert the pillow form.
8. Fold over the top. You can stop here if you want. What a pretty easy pillow!
Making A Button Closure
9. Materials needed for button closure: large button, twine, hot glue gun
10. Glue button on the bottom part of the pillow about 1-2 inches from the top closure centered in the middle of the pillow. Tie a bow with twine and glue it to the center of the button,
11. Make the loop closure: Cut about 3 inches of twine. Loop the center of the twine around the bottom of the button. Pull the twine up on each side of the button and bring it together on the underside of the top flap of the pillow. Tighten the twine and glue it making sure it catches the button securely. Cut off excess twine.
12. Display your new pillow!
I hope you will give this inexpensive and fabulous diy a try. The possibilities are endless!
