I’ll be the first to admit, I have practically no sewing skills. So anytime I can create something with fabric that doesn’t require a sewing machine, I get excited.
I found some ideas on Pinterest related to covering old throw pillows with fabric without having to sew, but I ended up modifying it just a tad. The one I saw used a knot to tie the fabric together. I tried this idea at home but it ended up just looking messy and I wasn’t very pleased with the final product. I wanted something a little more simple-looking that had cleaner lines.
Here is what I did:
And that’s it! If you want to make your lines nice and crisp while folding, you can use an iron. The nice thing about this method is you can always take the cover apart down the road if you want to cover the pillow with something else or if you have another use for the fabric.
Both Jo-Anns and Hobby Lobby have weekly coupons you can use on one yard of fabric. This cover cost me $5 after my discount. It’s a great way to dress up your old throw pillows at a really reasonable price.
