Lightbulb No Sew Floor Pillows

WELL SOMEONE ASKED FOR A NO SEW CRAFT PROJECT WILL I HAVE FOUND ONE HERE IT IS.

No-Sew Designer Floor Pillows


Materials (per pillow)
1 1/2 yd. Home decorator fabric to wrap cushions (fabric A)
3/4 yd. Home decorator fabric for top and bottom (fabric B)
1 pkg. Large 1/4" Eyelet Kit
2 pkgs. Large 1/4" Eyelet Refill
1 24" Square of 4" high-density foam
7 1/2 yd. Decorative cord
1 Heat 'N Bond Ultra Hold tape 7/8" width
1 Fabri-Tac permanent adhesive
Tools
Scissors
Iron and ironing board
Straight pins
Rotary cutter, ruler and mat

Directions
1. Center the foam on the wrong side of fabric A. Wrap two sides (opposite each other) to top, overlap and glue in place.

2. Making "hospital corners", wrap the other two sides to top and glue in place. Use straight pins to hold fabric in place while glue dries.

3. Cut fabric B into two 261/2" squares.

4. Following manufacturer's directions, iron Heat 'N Bond tape along the edges of the backside of the fabric squares. Remove the paper backing, fold 7/8" edge down and iron in place. Cut away excess bulk at corners while ironing in place.

5. Cut small holes 1/2" in from each corner. Place an eyelet through each hole and attach backings. Find the centers of each side edge, cut small holes and attach eyelets. Find the centers between all of the eyelets, cut small holes then attach eyelets. This process will evenly space the eyelets on each side.

6. Cut the decorative cord in half. Glue the end of one piece onto the backside of the fabric at the edge. Repeat with the other cord and fabric square. Allow time for the glue to dry.

7. Place one square on top of wrapped cushion and the other square on the opposite side. Put the cord through the eyelets, alternating top, then bottom, and threading it through like lacing shoes. Complete by gluing the ends on the backside where the beginning end of the cord is attached.

Approximate Crafting Time: 2 1/2 hrs.
Skill Level: No experience necessary

Ive also seen them made with fleece.


If you have a square pillow insert, You would need 2 larger squares of fleece. Fringe the edges of the fleece by cutting strips along each edge--long enough to knot and then have the strips hang long. You will have to have the same number of fringes on all sides


Lay one piece of fleece on the table, lay the pillow on top, cover with 2nd piece of fleece. Take the first fringe from the bottom and the first fringe from the top and tie them together, knotting at the top where the pillow is. Do the same all around.

Thats it. I wish I had a picture but I dont.


Here is the directions for making a blanket to match:
