I have had several ask me to repeat the instructions I gave for a no-sew pillow. I posted this last Jan, but it is definitely worth a repeat especially with everyone fluffing their house and porch for summer.
I love jelly-roll pillows, I think they are so classic and so very french also. If you look at many of the old world rooms you will find this pillow has been around for years. The forms come in several sizes, so choose what fits you furniture and then you can create many for next to nothing and have constant changes.
I want to use the smaller size for this chair, and I have a new fabric to go with my beige and white color scheme that I am currently using. This is the cover I previously had on this form. Cut your fabric twice the length of your form. ( I will show you why later. ) Then cut the fabric so it will go around the pillow and will fit snugly when you finish it.
Ok, my fabric is cut. This is a reversible fabric, but since I am using it on a white chair, I am going to use the beige side as the outside of the pillow.
Turn the right sides together and stitch closed. If you don't sew, then just use the fusable seam tape and close the side all the way down. (Super easy, you don't have to sew to make this pillow.)
Turn it inside out so you have the right side of the fabric showing.
Insert the pillow form making sure you have it in the middle with the same amount of excess on both ends.
Fold half of the excess on the end inside the opening. Make sure it is evenly folded in.
Now, using 2 heavy rubber bands, gather the fabric close to the pillow form and wrap the rubber bands tightly around the end of the form.
See how pretty your little pouf is!!!
Do the other side the same way and then play with your poufs until you are happy with them.
Fits perfectly on the chair. I have a couple of tassels, so I want to add them to the ends.
Just loop them around the ends where the rubber bands are and arrange them so they fan out on the chair.
Perfect and doesn't it look elegant?
All of the fabulous grain sacks and coffee sacks that I see out there are perfect candidates for this type of pillow. Can't you picture the grain sack stripe running around the middle of this pillow, it would be fabulous. So if you don't sew, but you want a new pillow, give this one a try. It is super easy.
