No-sew fleece pillow

These pillows are quick and easy to make (with a bit of prep work ahead of time).  
Here is what you will need:
  • Fleece
  • Poly-fil
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Rotary cutter and mats (optional)

These are the tools I used to measure and cut my fabric.  You can do this process with just scissors and a ruler if that is what you have handy.
First you will need to cut 2 squared out of your fleece.  I made mine 15" squares.
(for the library program I will pre-cut all the 15" squares and let the teens do the rest)

Next cut 3" squares out of each corner

Once all corners are cut out of both squares, layer them one on top of the other good sides facing out.  
Cut all sides into 1"wide strips.  You do not need to measure these exactly.  
They will just be used to tie the pillow shut.

Almost there!

Double check that your fabric is facing the correct way (good side facing out).  Begin to tie a simple knot matching the strips together.  Do this to three sides, leaving one side open for the poly-fil.

Three sides tied together!

Stuff your pillow with poly-fil.  I used two large handfuls in mine.  
If you want it to be fluffier just add more poly-fil.

Tie the last side shut and now you have a cute little pillow.  The finished pillow 12"x12" with 3" fringe.  
You can make these bigger or smaller if you desire.
