No Sew Bolster Pillow

Once again, I am bringing you a No Sew Project
You can check out my other no sew project Here
This is also a continuation of the Surprise {Room Makeover}
Which you can check out Here

I don't have a sewing machine and even if I did
I wouldn't know how to use it.
Therefore, I bring you, No Sew Bolster Pillow
It is super easy.

This is a picture of the way the bench started out.
(Not looking so hot)

These bolster pillow covers were super easy to remove.
They had a Zipper. Lol!
I was also very lucky that the pillow its self was a solid piece of foam.
If you don't have a pillow like I do,
You can use towels!
That's right, towels, isn't that cool.
Get the tutorial for that at The Red Chair Blog

So anyways, I started out by measuring how much
fabric I needed. I was short on fabric because I used
it for something else so mine was a tight squeeze.

Next I took both ends of the fabric and gathered them up with
the fabric inside out. I put a rubber band on both ends to make it
look like this:

Next, I placed my pillows inside my gathered material.

Then I just had to pull the fabric around the outside of the foam.
Then I tucked the rubber banded ends inside with the foam.

Viola! New Pillow!

As you can see below, the bench is a different color than the
picture at the top. I just spray painted it with an ivory color.
I did also recover the bench seat by using a staple gun
and my fabric. Super easy. I will show you that in another tutorial.

Happy No Sewing!
