Last Christmas I created a super cute throw pillow using tea towels from the dollar store. I never got around to blogging it, but I am now! This DIY is quick, easy, cheap and requires no sewing so I hope you will try it out.
- 2 printed tea towels
- batting or stuffing
- glue gun
- Cut excess material off towels to make them square, or skip this step if your design allows for a rectangular pillow.
- Line up your towels with the wrong sides in and apply small amount of glue to the edges. Press fabric lightly to ensure glue sticks.
- Glue around 3 sides and most of the 4th, leaving room to stuff it.
- Stuff your pillow using batting or stuffing (I used the fill from an old bed pillow) and glue the remaining edge shut.
This image shows the “raw edge” where I cut my fabric to make the pillow more square. If I were to do this again, I’d make sure the edge that is cut is along the bottom of the towel so that it is hidden.
Since I used 2 different towels I get more than 1 design with this pillow!
This little DIY project would be a great gift to make someone on your Christmas list! And since you can find super cute tea towels at the dollar store, you can make a whole bunch of pillows!!!
