No Sew Pillow/ Tied and True

1 Material
I decided to give a bathroom and bedroom in Hawk's Creek's farmhouse a " do-over". I like using what I have in my stash and seeing what happens. I wanted a few bed pillows to accent the window treatment. Years ago I donated my sewing machine to a group who could put it to good use; so had to go back to making things the old fadhioned way... No sew:-)
BLANK FORM. READY FOR A CHANGE
I had material which was designed like old flour sacks. I already had a curtain valance made out of this same fabric. suits my style perfectly. I cut the material to fit the pillow form.
INSERT PIllOW FORM
I placed the pillow form into the center of the two pieces of cut fabric. Leaving about 3-4 inches in extra fabric around the form edges.
TIEING UP LOOSE ENDS
Next I cut the ovethang fabric into strips up to the base of the form. Do this on all four sides.
SWEET LITTLE BOWS
I started tieing the cut strips, using a double knot.
NO SEWING SKILLS REQUIRED
After tieing all the loose ends, the new pillow is ready to use. Quick and easy.
CALICO AND ROSES
An easy and inexpensive way to add to any decor. I have used this technique for years. I have recovered chair bottoms and made many curtains using this cut and tie plan. Love it.
SINK SKIRT
I used the same fabric in the bath as a curtian around an old table which is the sink vanity.
Suggested materials:
  • Cotton flour sack material. Calico design print.   (Hobby Lobby)

      Yea! Don't you just love the antique colors and texture? I collect old flour sack material and this fabric struck gold with me. I have used this technique for many years. It works great on chair bottoms and curtains too. Have fun and thanks:-)))
