No-sew Decorator Pillow

no sew decorator pillow

I love making pillows. Especially when it's a quick and easy "no sew" pillow!


For this project, you need a 12" plain canvas pillow cover, an all-over patterned stencil, spray inks and large iron-on embroidered letters from Joy.


Using removable painter's tape, I taped the stencil onto the canvas pillow cover. I wanted my pillow to have a subtle background, so I lightly sprayed the canvas with a pale, shimmery color. Because the pillow is decorative, I'm not worried about the spray being non-washable.


I used large iron-on letters from Joy to spell out the word "Home."


To customize the plain white letters, I sprayed them with a darker shade for contrast.


Allow the letters to fully dry before arranging onto the pillow.  Cover the letters with a cotton cloth and press with a hot iron for about 30 seconds. I ironed it again from the back of the fabric for another 30 seconds.


I added an old button to the center of a burlap flower and used fabric glue to attach it to the corner of my pillow. Stuff it with a 12" pillow form and done!
