A Scrap Fabric DIY project that is simple, cute and easy to put together- Make one of these to decorate your home today! I share a video tutorial showing the steps.

Scrap Fabric DIY

A few weeks ago I was challenged to make a craft project using supplies from just your craft stash. I took to Facebook to ask you all what you would like me to use- Paper, fabric or felt, and almost all of you chose fabric! So here is my Scrap Fabric DIY Project-  A cute no sew pillow.

If you are a visual learner like me, you will enjoy the video tutorial more than anything I can type here. Click on the video box below to watch or click here to watch it on Youtube in HD. If you like my videos, please Subscribe to my channel!




For my fabric stash buster project, I reached for a bunch of fabric and felt scraps I had collected over the years. But here is a list of the tools I use in the video



This is a fun way to use up some left over fabrics you might have in your stash and make an adorable home decor item. I patch fabric blocks together to create a fabric of sorts- it’s like making a quilting block but using fabric glue.


I had so much fun adding small details to the front of the pillow- a button for the door handle, some pretty trim around the window and scalloped lace for under the roof. Also, mixing and matching fabrics? Oh that reminded me so much of my quilting days!


DIY cute kids pillows

My daughter absolutely loves this pillow, and she of course wants to keep it in her bedroom. I was thinking of placing it in our entryway but I don’t think she will let go of it. And the pillow really is her size isn’t it?


So what do you think friends? Does this spark ideas for you to create something from your fabric stash?
