No Sew Pillow (With Zippers!)

I’ve decided to round off my no sew kick with one of the easiest no sew projects ever- no sew pillows! This is one of the best projects to try if you are wanting to venture into no-sew land. While it took me 30 minutes per pillow, most can do it in a lot less time (darn Type A and making sure everything was perfectly even and matched).
This is pretty straight-forward but if I have left anything out or you don’t understand anything please, please, please let me know and I will try to explain better.
Now, let’s get to it…
What You Will Need
Fabric – For 16 inch pillows, you will need 1/2 yard per pillow. For 18 inch pillows, you will need 3/4 yard per pillow. Note: If you are trying to match a pattern perfectly on both sides you will need to add at least 1/4 yard to each of the previous measurements.
Iron
Fabri-Tac
Hem Tape
Scissors
Zippers – I prefer invisible zippers but they didn’t have the size I need. If you are doing 16 inch pillows, get a 14 inch zipper. If you are doing 18 inch pillows get a 16 inch zipper.
