No Sew Pillow

No sew Pillow (with knotted tassels)

This is without doubt a really easy project that can be done within 30 mins and a great project to include a child. To start with collect your fleece fabric that you want to use. This doesn’t have to be ‘new’ fleece, it works just as well with up-cycled fabric. You will need a cushion/pillow pad of whatever size you choose and a pair of scissors. And that’s it!
Measure your pillow and cut two pieces of fleece approx 2″ larger than the pillow all round. Lay your fleece out nice and flat and cut out all four corners . Keeping both pieces of fabric together snip cuts all around the four sides. I put my thumb between each snip to make it more equal but you really don’t have to be that exact about it. Then if that wasn’t easy enough he comes the even easier part, take one strip from the top and the one in line with it from the bottom and tie together. Continue this way until 3 of the sides are tied and then insert your pillow pad and knot your final side together.
These are great fun to do with the kids and you don’t have to just do squares or rectangles, let your (or theirs) imagination run wild, my granddaughter has done a heart and her initial ‘ L ‘ and they turned out brilliantly. They are great for your pets too and of course they can be done in any size.
