Decorating for Thanksgiving always feels a bit rushed. Stuck between Halloween and Christmas, this holiday is often overlooked or completely forgotten when it comes to decorating. Don’t worry, I’ve got the perfect solution with this no sew pillow tutorial! It’s super easy to make and can be enjoyed during the holiday season and beyond!
- Darice White Buffalo Check Bandanas (2)
- Stitch Witchery Fusible Bonding Web
- 16 X 16 Pillow Form Insert
- Oracal Metallic Gold Vinyl Sheets
- Oracal White Glossy Vinyl Sheets
- EasyPress or Iron
- “In All Things Give Thanks” Free SVG Files (ONE , TWO)
- Cricut™ Explore Air 2 Mint Machine
Let’s begin by making the cover for this this No-Sew Thanksgiving Pillow. Take one bandana, fold in half, and cut along fold. Measure and cut the long edges of both halves to 17″. Take the other bandana and a 17″ square. You should now have three panels: (2) 17″ x 10.5″ and (1) 17″ x 17″ square.
Cut a 17″ strip of fusible webbing and place on the raw edge of one of the smaller panels of fabric. Fold the bottom edge up to encompass the webbing and adhere in place with an iron. Repeat this process with the other smaller panel of fabric.
Lay out the 17″ square panel (right side facing up) and position one of the smaller panels at the edge. Use the fusible webbing to adhere both panels together along the outer three edges. Repeat this process with the second smaller panel. Once the pillow cover is cool to the touch, you can flip it right side out. Can you believe how easy it was to make a pillow cover? Now, let’s add some wording!
Use your preferred cutting machine to cut out both “In All Things Give Thanks” files from white and gold vinyl. Of course, you can totally customize your pillow and change out the colors. Just keep in mind that the first file is the regular lettering and the second file is the one with padding. Use an iron or EasyPress to apply the vinyl padded words to the center of the pillow cover.
With the padded words in place, apply the gold regular lettering to the center.
Now that the pillow cover is complete, just open the back panels to insert the pillow form and enjoy!
