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:
- sewing machine (optional)
- 2 fat quarters (often found in the quilting section of fabric stores in bundles)
- matching thread
- sewing needle
- pillow stuffing
Pin the two pieces of fabric right sides together.
Sew around the edges, leaving a gap large enough to fit your hand.
Snip the corners diagonally, being careful not to cut too close to the seam (this ensures a nice, clean, corner).
Turn right-side out and press.
Stuff the pillow to your desired firmness. Be sure to get stuffing right down into the corners.
Hand stitch the opening close.
Find somewhere to display your new pillow!
