How to Make a No-Sew Pillow Cover with Zipper

How to Make No sew Pillow covers with zippers (1)

How many of you have a ton of throw pillows and none of them match? Or you want to freshen up your living room or bedroom or patio, in my case, but the cost of buying entirely new pillows is absolutely daunting.  Throw pillows start at $15 to $20 each.  At your fancy retailers decorative pillows can set you back some $80+ per pillow.  I just couldn’t stomach spending that kinda of money nor did I have the space for any additional pillows (I have problems getting rid of the old ones). So I came up with the perfect solution that allowed me to keep the old pillows and brighten up my space.   Here is a super easy tutorial on how to make a no sew pillow case or pillow cover using fabric glue.

And the pillow cover has a zipper, so its removable, machine washable and super easy to maintain. Don’t buy new throw pillows, simply recover the old ones. You’ll have custom new pillows for every season and every occasion. Cost is roughly $7 to $5 a pillow, depending on the size. These pillow cases are customizable to fit any pillow size and it takes very little time to make.


  • Fabric glue
  • Hem tape
  • Canvas Fabric (18×18, for the average size pillow)
  • Muslin Fabric (18×18, for the average size pillow)
  • 16″ zipper


  • Iron
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
