I have been getting geared up to bring you some Fall inspiration and today is the day we are getting started! I did this pillow cover yesterday hoping the whole time it would turn out to be cute…because if it didn’t, I had no idea what I would be sharing today. The fabrics are a little hodge-podge but the method worked and that’s all that matters. So let’s go…

What you need:

  • pillow cover
  • fusible interfacing
  • pumpkin template
  • leaf/stem template
  • 3 coordinating fabrics
  • brown felt
  • green felt or fabric
  • scissors
  • iron
  • ironing board

DIY No Sew Pumpkin Pillow Cover

1. Print PUMPKIN TEMPLATE  {CLICK HERE} and LEAF/STEM TEMPLATE {CLICK HERE}. Card stock works great to print on because it’s very easy to trace around. Cut out the 5 sections of the pumpkin. Cut out the stem and the leaf. 

2. You need a very small amount of three different fabrics. I used scraps but if you don’t have any, fat quarters would work great. If you are purchasing fabric off the bolt, all you need is 1/8 yard of each. Prepare your pieces of fabric by ironing the fusible interfacing to the wrong side of each one. As shown in pictures 2, 3 and 4, trace the five sections of the pumpkin. 

Iron a piece of fusible interfacing to the brown felt. Trace the stem and cut out. Using the same method, make your leaves. (You can use any green fabric you have or green felt. I didn’t have either so I used a brown check.)

At your ironing board, iron your pillow cover. Then place the pumpkin pieces on your pillow cover so they are touching. (See no. 1 below.) Be careful to center the middle piece. Tuck the stem behind the pumpkin pieces. Carefully iron everything into place. Place your leaves and press well. (No. 2 below.)

Put a pillow insert into your cover. Press the front of the pillow cover one last time to make sure all your pieces are firmly attached. 

That’s it!

Now…I know my fabric choices may be a bit crazy. If you don’t want this look you could do just two print fabrics with a solid. I also think that using burlap would be very cute. I may try that and see what it looks like. Just use whatever fabrics you have on hand or ones you love. Either way you will end up with a fun, festive Fall accessory.
