No-Sew Throw Pillow Covers

Throw pillows can make pew-style seating cozier, or easily round out your weddings decor theme. Best of all, they can be incorporated quickly with zero sewing required. All you need to do is assemble no-sew throw pillow cases. Here’s how you do it.

Here are the materials you need:

  • Throw pillow insert(s)
  • Fabric
  • Scissors


Step 1: Decide on your vision for the throw pillows. Think through where you want them to be in your wedding and what function you hope for them to serve. Use this information for the next step.

Step 2: Find your fabric. Fabric for these throw pillows can come from anywhere: old favorite t-shirts that are sentimental, scarves (as pictured), fabric straight from an arts and crafts store, or even fabric from clothes sold at second-hand shops. Make sure your fabric either coordinates with your color theme or otherwise works toward you end decor goal.

Step 3: Find your pillow inserts. You can buy pillow inserts at arts and crafts stores or catch-all stores like Walmart or Amazon. You can also use a regular throw pillow as your “insert.”

Step 4: Cut a large square of fabric. The fabric square should be big enough to allow for the insert to sit in the middle of the square with plenty of room to wrap the fabric around the pillow left.

Step 5: Wrap your pillow. Fold in the edges of your fabric square, much like you would if you were wrapping a gift. Then fold in the opposite edges and either tie into a knot, tucking the edges of the tie beneath the fabric folds if you choose.


This simple process will allow you to add decorative throw pillows into any corner of your wedding.


If you’re looking to add in throw pillows as a sentimental piece, consider getting your fabric from clothing or blankets that remind you of when you met your partner, t-shirts from your favorite bands or places, nostalgic fabrics like sports jerseys or other relics from your joint childhoods, or even a map of places you both traveled.


As you can see from the example above, no-sew pillowcases  can achieve a clean and crisp look without requiring you or anyone else to commit tons of time laboriously sewing each pillow. It’s all about the fabric!
