Fat Quarter Throw Pillow | Easy Sewing Project


As a beginner with sewing, I’m always looking for quick and easy projects to practice on. When I first got my sewing machine, I picked up a bundle of fat quarters (essentially pieces of fabric that measures a quarter meter) to practice with. Coincidentally, fat quarters are the perfect size for a throw pillow so that’s what I decided to make first. A bonus to this project is that there’s no fabric cutting required!



Here’s what you’ll need for your throw pillow:
