Are you ready for easy? I don’t mean easy, I mean really easy!
In my beginning post about Making the Master Pillow Shams, I promised you an easy no-sew pillow. Who doesn’t love quick…and easy…and no-sew?
This roll pillow is made with one width of your chosen fabric, some poly batting, a little ribbon, and a little time.
Oh, and a pair of scissors. Cut your fabric to the width of your desired pillow plus 8 inches. For the length of your strip, use the full width of the fabric (selvage to selvage). Cut the poly batting to your finished pillow width and 8 inches shorter than the fabric width. I used 4 layers of 1/4″ batting.
Lay your fabric face-down and place the batting on top with 4 inches exposed around all sides. Fold the side edges (4 inches each) over the batting.
Fold the corners down at the end, like this picture below (except this is the picture for the other end). I didn’t get a picture of the beginning end. So, this is your beginning and ending fold.
After folding corners, fold the end over the batting. (Sorry, another picture of the end fold.)
Begin rolling your pillow. Notice the side edges want to pucker here and there.
Smooth each pucker with your hand as you roll.
Finish rolling to the end. Fold the corners as you did the other end (shown previously), and then fold the end flap, as well.
Holding your roll together, secure with a matching ribbon 6-8 inches from the end.
Repeat the ribbon at the other end and adjust if necessary for the size of your pillow.
My fabric print is running sideways, so feel free to adjust yours to run the other way if necessary. Me? I may actually have my roll placed vertically when I get all the pillows finished and on the bed.
Many of you may have made one of these before. I’m not so smart that I’ve invented something completely new – just a reminder of sorts. There are many ways you can make a roll pillow without sewing a stitch.
Have you made a roll pillow similar to this one? Isn’t it easy?
