    No Sew Throw Pillows

    I haven't posted in FOREVER, but when I needed some craftin' advice, I figured this would still be the place!

    I just moved and decided to toss my super old throw pillows and want to make some new ones. The problem? I don't have a sewing machine, and I'm not sure how great I am at sewing by hand. While I do a lot of other crafts (and have finished a few of my knitting projects, so I do know how to do some sewing), it's just not my forte. I was considering getting some of that stuff that you just iron (stitch witchery?) to "hem" the seams, but I wasn't sure if that would work. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    I would suggest the stitch-witch stuff, yes!

    My sister has decorated her entire house with that stuff alone.

    you can buy these foam pillow forms ar Jo-Ann made exactly for that! they have strategically placed slits that you tuck the fabric into, so you can just take a square of fabric and wrap it around the form. the brand is June Tailor and they are usually with the regular pillow forms. the drawback is that they're fairly expensive, around $18 each.

    I love stitch witch!! they even have huge sheets of it that you can cut off the bolt (it's near the fusible bolts) at the fabric stores. I made curtains for my husband pickup truck canopy when i didn't have a sewing machine. also my mom used it for years to hem our clothes when i was a kid!!

    great stuff, plus it's cheap.

    My eldest niece used the technique shown here to make cushions for her dorm room. Basically you just cut and knot all round the edges.

    I thought they looked very funky so she made one for my cats! :0)
