No-Sew Fourth of July Pillow Cover

With the Fourth of July just days away, I wanted to share a couple of projects that Debbie at Mountain Breaths created in honor of the occasion. Debbie replicated a patriotic pillow she saw in Pottery Barn’s catalog using fabric she actually picked up at Wal-mart years ago. What’s cool about Debbie’s pillow cover is that it requires absolutely no sewing. You’ll have to head over to Debbie’s site to read how she did it!

Kelly from The Lily Pad Cottage is loving herself some pom poms right now. So when she saw the adorable Crinkle Puff Quilts at PB Teen, Kelly had to have one for her daughter’s room and knew she could easily fashion one herself. Kelly got to work making her own pom poms out of yarn and then attached them to a white quilt she already had. Kelly says, “This project is so easy and no-sew! I’m so happy with how it turned out.”

Mary Anne from Purposedly Reinvented had been on the lookout for a bed skirt without ruffles AND a ridiculously expensive price tag. She loved the look of a simple pleated style and decided to get creative and make her own with a fitted twin sheet. Mary Anne’s bed skirt not only looks great, but it requires minimal sewing and doesn’t shift!

Aimee from It’s Overflowing shows it is possible to create a knock-off pillow without a needle and thread. Aimee let her Silhouette Cameo do almost all the work for this project! All she had to do was iron the perfectly cut deer head onto a ready-made pillow she snagged on clearance at Target. As Aimee asks, “how can something that simple be that cute!?!”

Burlap Window Panels

I know I am not alone in saying that I love burlap and it’s price. The fact that I can get it for a couple of dollars a yard with a coupon makes me wonder why stores like Ballard are charging around $200 for one burlap panel. Sheesh! Alicia from Thrifty and Chic shows that you don’t have to pay those outrageous prices, not when you can make your own burlap curtains for $12, and that’s for two panels!

Iron On Ampersand Pillow

Brittney from My Suite Bliss gave an existing pillow a quick and easy transformation with a little fabric and Pellon. Brittney simply traced an ampersand onto her fabric, backed it with the Pellon, and ironed it onto the pillow. I totally agree with Brittney that the possibilities are endless with this technique.
