Easier Than Ever No-Sew Floor Pillows

Hello, friends!

These easy DIY NO SEW FLOOR PILLOWS are the result of my hubby and daughter loving to chill on our area rug during movie nights. We have amazingly comfortable couches, yet movie night after movie night these two ALWAYS end up on the floor.

More power to them, but I'm a couch type girl. Laying on the floor does not intrigue me at all!

Even though we have a very comfortable area rug, I figured it would be nice to make them some floor pillows that they could use for extra comfort while we all enjoy a movie together.

I'm telling you guys, these are the easiest no sew floor pillows, ever!! You don't even need to measure with my lazy but oh so effective method!! But my mathematician friends need not worry, I also included a formula for you, so you can get down with your bad measuring self!

So, what did I use for these No Sew Floor Pillows?

1. For the inserts I used two euro pillows I was using on our bed. But since a makeover for that room is in the near future, I figured I could buy new ones! Euro pillows are the perfect size for floor pillows!!! And they're comfortable, too!

2. Instead of using my usual hem tape, I used fabric glue. Three words... SO. MUCH. EASIER.

3. I purchased 1 1/2 yards of each fabric from my favorite craft store, Hobby Lobby.


For the width:

Using my lazy method: simply lay your pillow on top of your fabric, add 2 inches (so you can glue 1 inch on each side), make a marking and that's your width!

For your measuring loving people: measure the width of your pillow form and add 2 inches.

Example: if the width of your pillow is 24 inches, the total width of your fabric will be 26 inches.

For the length:

Using my lazy method: place your pillow form on the middle of your fabric and bring the top portion of fabric over the pillow adjusting it as you go along. You want the top of the fabric to cover half the pillow. Now bring the bottom portion of the fabric over your pillow and mark where it meets your top portion of fabric, add 3 inches and make your marking. You want the bottom of the fabric to overlap the top of the fabric to give room for the pillow insert (See photo collage below).

If you prefer measuring to my lazy method: just measure the length of your pillow, multiply by 2 and add 3 inches.

Example: if the length of your pillow is 24 inches your math will look something like this:

24 X 2= 48
48 + 3=51

51 is the total length of fabric you'll need!

This proves I can do math but obviously still avoid it at any cost.

Does it sound crazy that I do all this just to avoid measuring? Oh well, we all have our quirks!

Here's a photo collage illustrating how your one piece of fabric should wrap around your pillow form:

Now for the super easy and fast tutorial!!!


1. Lay your fabric print side up and bring the top portion to the middle.

2. Next bring your bottom portion upward and overlapping the top portion by 3 inches.

3. Glue the 3 inches where the fabric overlaps but only on the sides. Do not glue the whole strip together or there will be no opening to insert your pillow!

4. And lastly, glue the 2 sides of the fabric.

Once I had everything glued, I waited an hour to turn my pillow cover right side out and insert my pillow form. 

I also want to add that I didn't' bother "hemming" the back of the pillow cover where the fabric overlaps. I could have glued it down 1/2 an inch to create a hem but opted not to....maybe I should have called this post the Lazy Way To DIY a Floor Pillow!

Now my two favorite people in the world each have their own comfy floor pillow to relax on while we enjoy our Summer movie nights!

And they're not a bad addition to my home decor, either!! I keep them next to our T.V. stand and I just love the color and patterns they add to our Living Room!

Please pretend you didn't see those nasty cords under the T.V. stand! I need to get on that ASAP and I just know my blogging friend, Lisa is having a cow right now!! 

But aren't they oh so pretty?!!

These were so much easier to make than my No Sew Pillow Covers Made from Napkins!

The fact that you are only working with one long strip of fabric as opposed to two just makes a world of difference!

Do you cut any corners when you are DIY'ing?

Saw your pillows on G+!!! So glad I did! I'm making these very soon! Pinning and sharing... Will you please link up at Merry Monday Linky? I would so love to share these or any other of your awesome projects! Julia

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

You are so funny, Selene! I totally didn't even notice your cords until you mentioned it. Lol! Love the pillows and you KNOW I love your no sew method! I'll have to try fabric glue the next time I'm working on a project. I love how you have the pillows in the corner by your tv. They totally add to the decor! You always choose the nicest fabrics too. :) P.S. I totally avoid math at all costs too and my hubby also chooses the floor over the sofa all the time! So weird! :)

These are the types of DIY projects I look for! I can't sew a button on a shirt, much less pillows. Matter of fact I wouldn't even know how to turn on a sewing machine...do they even have an on/off switch? I will be making some of these for my kiddos!

Christine Graves said...

Great pillows, love how quick and easy it is. I would leave a longer comment but I need to go get some fabric glue! LOL

Those pillows turned out so cute! I don't know about you--but I have so much more satisfaction when I make something myself rather than pay someone else to make it. :)

Which floor pillows you pick will rely upon your home, the measure of your family and what number of individuals visit you all the time. Floor pillows are a great method to supplement your seating in your home without taking up a considerable measure of room.I find a very good website for the best best pillow for side sleeper with neck and back pain. you can visit this site.
