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. 

Here are some helpful links to sources and the templates:

    Love this, where are the pillow covers sold.

    Ann….I have tried so many times to print the template for the No Sew Pumpkin Pillow w/leaves and stem template However each time I try to print it a blank sheet comes out of my printer. What am I doing wrong. The printer window opens and I indicate the pages I want printed but only 1 blank sheet comes out. I have printed templates many times before and have not had this problem. I have already purchased the pillow cover from Hobby Lobby so am anxious to get started on the pillow. Thanks for your help….

    1. I had the same problem. So, I saved the template in my “Documents” & printed it from there. Worked like a charm. Hope it works for you.

      1. Ann Drake says:

        Thank you Cindy for helping Betty out…I appreciate it!

  4. Heather Chapplain says:

    I love this pillow cover. I love the colours and the texture that the trim adds. I will definitely be sharing this with my quilt guild.

  5. It is simply not possible for you to sew something and it not turn out cute! This is adorable:D Thank you so much for the template! Fall time is my favorite:)

  6. SO CUTE Ann! It’s been cool here and I’m in the mood for fall, so this is perfect inspiration
    to make something new! I went through my fabric scraps and think I found a great combination for my family room and front porch. Thanks for sharing:-)

  7. Very nice! I have some fabric that will be just perfect for this. Thank you Anne!

  8. Marilyn Clark says:

    So cute! I liked your fabric too! I think burlap would be very cute and I would do the stem and leaves out of some other coordinating colors.

  9. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Such a cute pumpkin idea,you always come up with something extra ordinary. Thanks Ann.

  10. Hi Ann,

    This pillow is too cute! I just finished making the burlap runner with tassels, & this pillow will be my next project. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I look forward to all your posts.

    1. Marilyn Clark says:

      You could use this on a runner as well!

      1. I hadn’t thought about that, but that’s a good idea! I may try it. Thank you for the suggestion.

  11. Ann – I like this idea a lot. It’s simple and you could use colors that coordinate with your room. Can you tell me where you got the pillow cover? I would appreciate it.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Dorothy…I got the pillow cover at Hobby Lobby!

  12. cheryl aull says:

    just make me one and I’ll pay you!!!! It’s still looks hard for us non-crafty people!!!

  13. Great for a quick Fall look! Thank you for sharing, love your website!

  14. Penny @ The Comforts of Home says:

    Cute!!

  15. Shirley@housepitality designs says:

    So love this Ann!!!

  16. Oh, thank you, Ann! I’ve had such a lovely time clicking on your fall links this morning. Blessings, Karen from Oregon

  17. Jeanette Duke says:

    Your pillow is as cute as can be! I simply cannot get in the fall mode with our temps in the 80’s and 90’s. We are having all these storms as a result of such hot steamy weather also. Hopefully in a few weeks I will catch the fall decorating bug!

  18. Vickie Burch says:

    Love this! I am going to do one myself!

  19. Elizabeth@ Rustic Maple says:

    I’m back to comment because I couldn’t find the comment box on my phone today. Had to say how lovely your pillow is and the instructions are so complete. Pinned it for future use (the pumpkin template would be great for our special needs teens for Fall projects at school too.) Thanks for sharing. Have a great week, Ann.

    1. Vickie Burch says:

      What a great idea for the teens!

    2. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Elizabeth…on mobile you have to tap the “View Comments” box to open everything up. The comment box is there along with all the other comments. Sorry for the confusion…I know it’s not very clear.

  20. So cute and so simple! This pillow is definitely on my to do list. Thanks for another great idea.

  21. Super cute Ann, I love the fabric choices :) What a great way to kick off fall.

  22. Ann this is adorable. Sounds easy to do. Burlap( or hessian as we call it in England) would also be a good choice. Love your posts.

  23. Dorene @ Seasonal Chapters says:

    Fall is my favorite season, so this project will definitely be something I do to help bring a little autumn flair into our home. I love that it is quick and easy but so adorably cute. Thanks for sharing the idea and pattern. Reading your posts is always a great way to start my day.

  24. Arti Mader says:

    I love this design. It’s “autumny,” and though it can be used through Halloween, the design is classic rather than “Halloweeny”. Thanks for a great idea!

  25. Heather B. says:

    Love, love, love it! Especially the fabric/color combinations!
    Well done and thanks for a good tutorial!

  26. I’m going to do this as placemats! So cute! Love the different colors and patterns. The thanks for the inspiration!

  27. KittyLuvr says:

    What a great idea! I have that very pillow cover (bought an extra when I did the burlap bunny pillow) and several scraps that will be perfect! Thanks for sharing such easy creative ideas! And they always turn out just like yours because of your very detailed instructions!

  28. Annie Guebara says:

    Ann the fabric colors are perfect. Thank you for sharing. I will definitely be making one soon.
