When I thought of buying this fabric, my intention wasn’t to use it to make a diy throw pillow case or a diy fabric wall art. I was just shopping for a good looking fabric that would serve as a mat for a Bohemian theme picnic. When the fabric arrived, it turned out I ordered the wrong size. It was barely up to a yard. I had to think of other ways to use this fabric and a pretty decent #DIYHome was created with a diy throw pillow case and wall art. Have you seen the diy fabric wall art, check it out! Its so simple to make.

DIY THROW PILLOW CASESo in this post: I will be showing you how I made a diy throw pillow case with without using a sewing machine.

Here’s what you will need:

  • For a standard throw pillow case you need a 45cm x 45cm pillow fibre.
  • A fabric
  • A zipper
  • A pair of scissors
  • A needle
  • A thread

How To Make a DIY Throw Pillow Case Without Using a Sewing Machine

For a standard throw pillow case you need a 45cm x 45cm pillow fibre.

Step 1

Cut 90cm x 45cm fabric and fold into two.


Step 2

Use a back stitch to sew the two opposite openings. When I sew without a sewing machine, I use a back stitch which is basically passing a threaded needle through a fabric from front to back and back to front, going back in reverse to repeat the same step.

Step 3

Place the wrong side of the zipper up and sew one side of zipper to one side of the opening. Do the same for the other side of the zipper.

Step 4

Put the pillow fibre inside the pillow case and zip up.

And that’s how you sew a diy throw pillow case in these 4 simple steps.

Here’s a Detailed video to give you an idea or a clear picture of the steps.
