Materials You’ll Need:

  • Cloth napkins (choose your favorite patterns and colors)
  • Fabric glue
  • Pillow insert or stuffing
  • Iron (optional)

Step 1: Choose Your Cloth Napkins

Start by selecting your cloth napkins. Choose napkins with vibrant colors, interesting patterns, or textures that complement your existing decor. You can mix and match different napkins for a fun and eclectic look, or stick to a cohesive color scheme for a more polished aesthetic. For example, I used 18 inch napkins and a 20 inch pillow insert.

Step 2: Arrange and Glue

Lay one of your cloth napkins flat on a clean, flat surface, with the right side facing up. Apply a thin, even layer of fabric glue along the first edge of the napkin (I followed the stitching seam of the napkin), leaving about half an inch from the edge. Be sure to work quickly, as fabric glue dries fast depending on what brand you have.

Step 3: Seal and Glue

Carefully place the second cloth napkin on top of the other with both right sides facing down. Use fabric glue to secure the first edge of the second napkin to the first napkin, creating a tight seal. I chose to do this one side edge at a time to make sure everything was sticking together well.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 2 & 3

Do this all again for the next 2 edges. Make sure you leave the final edge open for stuffing your insert.

Step 5: Leave an Opening

For the final edge of the pillow you will glue a few inches of each end so that there is an opening wide enough to get the pillow in there.

Step 6: Let it Dry

Allow the fabric glue to dry completely according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This may take a few hours or overnight, depending on the type of glue you’re using. You may choose t

Step 7: Add Pillow Insert or Stuffing

Once your glue has cured fully, turn your pillow cover inside out. Depending on the glue you use, you may choose to iron the seams (check the instructions carefully). Most glues may require extra curing time before ironing or they may not recommend ironing it. I also use a pen (with the cap on) to push the pillow corners out fully. Carefully insert your pillow and if you’re using stuffing, add enough to achieve your desired level of fullness.

Step 8: Glue the Opening Closed

Now you will close the open seam that you used to get the pillow insert inside of. The same method applies here as above. You will want to almost tuck the right sides in together and glue them shut. This does make your pillow insert permanent. Again, you will want this to cure properly. I used paper clips I had at home to hold the seam in place.

Step 9: Fluff and Enjoy

When the glue is dry, fluff up your new no-sew pillow and place it on your couch, bed, or favorite armchair. Admire your handiwork and enjoy the cozy charm that your new DIY pillow brings to your space!

Here are the fabric napkins and fabric glue I chose for this project:

  • Fabric Glue I only used one bottle though, this set is for 2 and you would not need that much for one single pillow.
  • Cloth napkins

So grab your favorite cloth napkins and fabric glue, and let your creativity shine as you transform ordinary napkins into stylish throw pillows that will elevate any room in your home. Happy crafting!
