Throw pillows can be so expensive, but they look great lined up along a couch or a bed. I have a thing for throw pillows, however I don’t have very many because of how much they cost.

Shopping in Hamrick’s one weekend brought me to these adorable fall dish towels. They were just under $8 for a set of 2, plus an extra 40% off. Of course I couldn’t leave them there after seeing that sale sign.

I didn’t want to use my new fall dish towels as dish towels, though. I wanted to use them to make fall pillows. With these two dish towels, I was able to make two small fall pillows for less than $5!

Let me show you how I make these adorable no sew fall pillows.

No-Sew Fall Pillows

What you need:

Dishtowels for no sew pillows

What you do:

Step 1 – Iron

You are going to want to iron the dish towels to make it easier. Iron out the crisp creases the best you can. This helps make them straighter so you get more even lines when adding the iron-on adhesive.

Step 1 - Iron the dishcloths

Step 2 – Turn the dishcloth inside out

Lay the dish towels out flat with the front part facing you. Take one end and fold it up to the other end, making the front part become the inside.

Step 2 - turn the dishcloth inside out for the fall pillows

Step 3 – Add the iron-on adhesive

Take a strip of the iron-on adhesive and lay it along one side of the dish towel and put both sides together. Iron for about 30 seconds. Let the adhesive dry and cool for a few minutes or you’ll have a sticky mess on your hands. Do both sides the same way.

Do not iron the bottom part yet! Only iron the 2 sides.

After the iron-on adhesive is cool and dry, turn the “pillow” inside out.

Step 4 – Add the fiber fill

Start stuffing your no sew pillows with the fiber fill in the hole that you have left open. If you want you can add a little bit of the iron-on adhesive tape to each side of the bottom part, but leave a hole big enough to put the fiber fill in.

Fill the no sew pillows with enough fiber fill to make them the way you want. I didn’t add a lot to mine, because I didn’t want them too fluffy. I wanted them to lay a little flat.

Step 5 – Close up the hole

The last thing you want to do is to add the iron-on adhesive to the bottom part to close up the hole. Do this the same way you did the sides. Make sure to let it dry well before handling.

Fall no sew pillows

These no sew fall pillows are so easy to make and cost way less than store bought throw pillows. I plan to keep making these for every season and holiday!

  1. So cute, Michelle. I have to tell you my pillow secret, too! At Christmas, I cover all the pillows on the all-season porch furniture with holiday colors and all I do is safety pin everything in place. It’s too cold to sit out there — so nothing goes askew, but it looks like I have it really together from the street. Little do passersby know!! 🙂

      1. I’ve never used one either. Just done some hand-sewing. I once made my own stuffed animal when I was in middle school! My mom is a bit of a whiz with a sewing machine (my grandma taught her), and she’s made tons of things with it (clothes, pillows, curtains). But she always moans when she takes it out these days; very heavy, bulky and a pain to use.

    1. Yes the adhesive is safe for washing. I would just avoid using any liquid fabric softener, though. The tape I picked up at Walmart was $5 for a pack of 2. It may be a little more expensive, but I don’t sew so I use this instead. ?

  2. Your ideas never cease to amaze me Michelle 🙂 This pillow is perfect! I love that it is no sew. Hubby is better at sewing than I am! 😀

    Your home is so cozy. I absolutely love it. Most of all, I love that you’ve turned your creative visions into reality. Beautiful my friend.

    1. Thank you so much!! I’m not good at sewing, either, which is why I use the adhesive. 😀 Thank you for your kind words! Almost all of my decor I make myself or get from thrift stores. 🙂

I love to hear from you!
