No Sew Floor Cushions

I can’t sew.

Well OK, actually maybe that isn’t the right choice of words.

I can sew . I just choose not to because I dislike it so (see what I did there?). I find the whole process quite daunting. Then when you add a sewing machine to the equation, I can literally feel drops of perspiration forming on my forehead.

That voice inside my head? It just screams NO! Just NO! (dramatic, as ever I know)

So as you can imagine, I live for ALL the alternative solutions to sewing products .

And I wanted to make floor cushions for my rented home to soften up the flooring (FYI have you watched my new RENTER HOME TOUR SERIES) but didn't want to sew so heres what I did


  • Glue
  • Single sized bed sheet (or 2 x pieces of 60cm X 60cm fabric)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Stuffing
  • Ruler or square template

1 .Lay out your bed sheet the wrong way down on a flat surface (iron if needed). draw a square outline on one side of the fabric.

2. Cut out the two squares with a sharp pair of scissors.

Now apply the Contact Adhesive Glue around the edges of both of the fabric squares.

Don’t forget to leave a 3-4 cm opening on both of the fabric squares clear of glue. This opening will be used to insert the the stuffing.

Place the two fabrics together ..Leave the glue to cure for 24hrs

Once dried, turn the pillow in side out through the opening you have created.

    Great idea, so do-able.

    Any feedback yet on how the glue holds up in laundering?

      Her blog says that she used Gorilla Contact Adhesive Glue that is machine washable....

    I have to make cushions for bench seating. I cant sew and don't have a sewing machine. Do you think this Gorilla Glue would work for that?

      You can use fabric glue. It works well.

      Can you Not wash Gorilla Glue?

      I've never tried it.

      I have used fabric paint to adhere a patch to a hoodie. It worked well. I washed in cold water and dried on low heat.

      I love fabric glue!
